Those who got me out of office succeeded in marketing me very well – Former Auditor General


The former Auditor General, Daniel Yao Demelevo, has said significant revelations about his removal from office and the subsequent developments in his professional life.

According to him, those who orchestrated his removal from office, succeeded in marketing him for advanced roles with international firms.


Speaking in an interview with veteran journalist, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, on Pan African TV, the former Auditor General said that even though the rulings from the Supreme Court was in his favour, it came at a time he couldn’t be reinstated back as Auditor General.

However, the circumstances that led to his removal have paved the way for him to grab international appointments.

“Those who got me out of office served their interest and they also succeeded in marketing me very well for which I am grateful to them for the pro bono work they did for me. Even though they secured their interests interestingly.

“People meet me and congratulate me on the Supreme Court’s ruling but I tell them the court ruled in the president’s favour not mine,” he said.

According to him, he was dismissed from office because his auditing method was inconveniencing the presidency and would have lost the administration the 2020 elections.

As a result, he thought the government pushed him aside so that it could have its way.

“First and foremost, I think I was inconveniencing the presidency or the government with the type of auditing I was doing, so they needed me out. With 2020 being an election year, if my report came out by June 2020 before the election they didn’t know what it was going to be for them. By this, they won by pushing me aside,” he stated.

When asked what he has been doing to since leaving government, Daniel Yao Domelevo stated that he has been advising with the World Bank and other international organizations.

“ I have been providing consultancy services across the globe for some of the international financial institutions which have sent me to several countries in Africa and Asia.

“…For now, I don’t do anything in Ghana, I only come for visits…there has not been any request for my service here in Ghana but I am more than happy to work for Ghana because there is nowhere better than home,” he added.
