| Updated Mar 23, 2017
President John Dramani Mahama has spoken highly about the new Auditor-General and assured him that the government will co-operate with him to discharge his duties effectively.
Mr Daniel Yao Domelevo, 55, who, until his appointment, worked as a Senior Financial Management Specialist at the World Bank, was sworn in by the President at the Flagstaff House.
The President revealed at the brief swearing-in ceremony that it took an exacting search to "discover" the highly professional Mr Domelevo.
"I know you worked with the Accountant-General's Department for so many years and you are very highly qualified, but it took quite a search to eventually discover you," President Mahama said.
He mentioned the important role the Audit Service played in good governance and how professionals in the service must strive to deliver results.
“The Audit Service exists to ensure good governance and, therefore, your responsibility, together with your team, is to deliver this to Ghanaians through the pursuit and application of the highest level of professionalism, accountability, probity and transparency in the public financial management systems of Ghana," he said.
Mr Domelevo thanked the President for the appointment and pledged not to disappoint the nation.
