President John Mahama has sworn into office Daniel Domelovo as new Auditor-General.

Speaking during the swearing in ceremony in Accra on Friday, December 30, Mr Mahama asked the newly appointed Auditor General Daniel Domelovo to help ensure transparency and accountability in government.

“The Audit Service exists to ensure good governance and, so, your responsibility, together with your team, is to deliver this to Ghanaians through the pursuit and application to the highest level of professionalism, accountability, probity and transparency in the public financial management system of Ghana.

“We have been working on the National Anti-Corruption Action Plan, and the National Anti-Corruption Action Plan has three key principles: prevention, education, and prosecution,” the president said.

He said “Prevention and education are put first because we believe that the best practice is to prevent it from taking place, and, so, in discharging your job, your emphasis is not on sanctioning but creating the system that prevents misappropriation of public funds from taking place.

“Of course when it has happened, it is important for us to sanction whoever had undertaken that and so I hope that you will work with government to ensure that we are able to bring probity and accountability into our public service especially, and ensure that we minimise the misuse of government funds and property,” President Mahama added.

President Mahama has been involved in a series of controversial 'last minute' appointments in the twilight of his presidency.

There were earlier reports that Mr Domelovo, who is an accountant in Zimbabwe, rejected the offer to avoid controversies.

Meanwhile, President John Dramani Mahama has inaugurated the new headquarters of the Ghana Academy of Arts and sciences.

The building funded by GetFund is to serve as campus for the academy.
