President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed his appreciation to Daniel Yao Domelevo, who has been asked to go on a compulsory retirement, although the latter claims he is not 60-years-old yet.
A letter signed by Nana Bediatuo Asante, Executive Secretary to the president on Wednesday, March 3, 2021 and addressed to Daniel Yao Domelevo said:
“The attention of the President of the Republic has been drawn to records and documents made available to the Office by the Audit Service, that indicate that your date of birth is 1 June 1960 and that in accordance with article 199 (1) of the Constitution, your date of retirement as Auditor General was 1 June 2020.
“Based on this information, the President is of the view that you have formally left office. Mr Johnson Akuamoa-Asiedu will continue to act as Auditor-General until the President appoints a substantive Auditor General.
“The president thanks you for your service to the nation and wishes you the very best in your future endeavours,” the statement read.
After the President’s letter was made public, Daniel Yao Domelevo, sang the popular hymn ‘Now thank we all our God’ composed by German Lutheran clergyman, Martin Rinckart, in 1636.
In a post on his Facebook timeline, Mr. Domelevo wrote out the song from Methodist Hymn Book (MHB) #10:
“Now thank we all our God,
With hearts and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things hath done,
In whom His earth rejoices;
Who from our mothers’ arms,
Hath blessed us on our way,
With countless gifts of love
And still is ours today.”
