The Economic Fighters League of Ghana has thrown its support behind Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo, in the wake of what the group claims to be an intense attack from politicians, ABC News can report.

A statement by the group, sighted by ABC News, stressed that under Mr. Domelevo’s leadership, the Service has moved from a ”toothless report-writing body to a powerful force against stealing in public office” and every attempt to stop him will not be entertained.

”This statement is to show unreserved support to the Auditor-General, Mr. Daniel Domelevo and the audit service, which has come under intense attack from partisan political hawks recently, including through a frivolous petition to EOCO against the Auditor-General,” the Economic Fighters League disclosed.

The intimidated that there is a deliberate attempt to deliberately remove Daniel Domelevo from the post because of his persistence to retrieve monies due the state from some political actors.

They believe that the petition to EOCO is one of the numerous attempts orchestrated to belittle the work of the Auditor-General.

”Under Mr. Domelevo’s leadership, the service has moved from a toothless report-writing body to a powerful force against stealing in public office. Over hundred (100) individuals and organisations have been surcharged and over GHC 60 million recovered. The Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo-Maafo has recently been surcharged over a $1million irregular payment to a company called Kroll Associates. Following this, some people have been unleashed to discredit the Auditor-General and truncate his work,” the statement said.

The group also backed the Auditor-General in his quest to retrieve some state funds from Senior Minister, Osafo-Maafo. It adds that government is not serious about protecting the public purse since it has done little to protect the Auditor-General from the series of attacks he has faced.

”We serve notice that we as Ghanaians are in dire need of the money and therefore support the Auditor-General to collect it from Mr. Osafo-Maafo and all those whose actions cause losses to the state. We further call on Mr. Osafo-Maafo to pay the money and tell the attack dogs to back off,” the statement indicated.

“If the government was serious about fighting public sector stealing, it would not allow a hardworking Auditor-General like Daniel Domelevo to be attacked and discredited,” the group avered.
