The Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo has urged President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to walk his talk on fighting corruption in the country.

“I believe the fight against corruption is a collective responsibility. It does not lie on a particular individual to do that neither Auditor General alone or the Special Prosecutor”. He cautioned, adding that, “In case you find a corrupt person, you must report”.

The exercise, according to the department is an attempt to do away with ghost names in the country’s payroll.

Domelevo also said, "The president has a responsibility to demonstrate to the public that he is indeed committed to fighting corruption. In case any of his ministers or when government officials engage in corruptible acts, he must call for investigations and also suspend such official."

"If after investigations and the person is said to be clean, then he comes back to his job but if he is found guilty of the charges, the president must make sure such a person faces trial. We must show that, we are committed to developing our country”.
