The board also raised questions about Mr Domelevo’s nationality, claiming he was Togolose per the records.

In response to the allegations, Mr Domelevo in a separate letter addressed to the Chairman of the Audit Service stated that he was Ghanaian as both of his parents were Ghanaians.

“My grandfather, the late Martin Domelevo Tettey, belonged to the Boye-Doe Wem (or Boye-Doe House) which is part of the Dangmebiawe Clan. He was a native of Ada in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana, who migrated to Togo and stayed in Agbatofe,” he said.

The Auditor-General also explained: “My late father, Augustine Domelevo, migrated from Togo to the Gold Coast. He stayed in several towns and or villages before finally settling in Kwahu Adeemmra. Either my father wrongly mentioned Agbatofe in Togo as his hometown to me or I misconstrued it at the time….my mother is also Ghanaian.”

In a short interaction with some media personnel upon his arrival to his office, Mr Domelevo said he would not comment on any issues raised by the Audit Service Board.

He said, "I will not make any comment or statement. I will not comment on any issues."
