                            The opposition National Democratic Congress has launched a scathing attack on the board of chair of the Audit service, Prof. Edward Dua Agyemang, describing him as a trickster and a hatchet man. The party believes the former Auditor General does not have the credibility to undertake any role assigned to him and thus questioned why President Akuffo Addo appointed him to service.

In an address to the media by the party on Tuesday 2nd October 2018, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the general secretary of the NDC insisted that the appointment of Prof. Dua Agyemang has led to a number of illegalities and complete maladministration in the current government. “It is the same Dua Agyemang acting in the irresponsible, egotistic and sleazy manner that he has become famous for, who has been responsible for all these acts of mis governance and illegality. Shoddiness is his first name, dishonesty is the middle name and vindictiveness his surname”, he said.

The reputation of Edward Dua Agyemang as a trickster and a hatchet man precedes him, and the slightest investigation into his background would have revealed the following facts about him.

                                                                              GROUNDS FOR THE NDC CLAIMS

Mr. Dua-Agyemang was appointed Acting Auditor General in 2001 when he had already past the mandatory retirement age of sixty years and stayed in office till mid-November-2009 when his terminal leave ended.

Mr. Dua Agyemang who was the then Chairman of the public Accounts Committee was accused by Honorable Sam Sallas Mensah, then MP for upper west Akyem Constituency of dishonestly staying in office after the expiration of his constitutionally permitted term and questioned the legitimacy of audit reports signed by him after 2006.

Mr Dua Agyemang also hounded Alhaji Mohammed Mumuni, running mate of the then NDC Presidential candidate Professor John Evans Atta Mills, Dr. Kwadwo Afari Gyan, the former chairman of the electoral commission and others when they criticized the NPP government under John Agyekum Kuffuor.

Mr. Dua Agyemang is said to have harassed President Mills government, claiming that he (Dua Agyemang) was entitled to salaries from the state for the rest of his life after he had been paid ex gratia award as well as his emoluments.

Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia aslo stated that Dua Agyemang do not have the integrity and character to undertake such assignment. “The person who has been appointed by President Akuffo Addo to chair the audit service Board and who has been asked to recruit these private firms in the name of Cabinet Committee Secretary is the one who has now been recycled to chair the Audit Service Board to fight corruption.” He added.

The Auditor General Daniel Domelevo has petitioned President Akuffo Addo over what he calls “unlawful interference” in his work by the services Board Chairman, Dr. Edward Dua Agyemang.


Responding to this is the chairman of the Audit Service Board, Mr Dua Agyemang saying “I’m not undermining Auditor General Chairman”. He has denied allegations that he is interfering with the work of Auditor General Daniel Yaw Domelevo. The Board Chairman insisted that roles are clearly defined and the Board was not interfering in the work of the Auditor General.
