Two Ghana-based think tanks, the Centre for Social Justice and IMANI Centre for Policy and Education have honoured the immediate past Auditor General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo with a Distinguished Public Sector Award.
The award was presented during the 8th in a series of Leadership Dialogue platforms organised by the think tanks, under the theme, ‘Uprooting Public Sector and Political Corruption in Ghana’.
The citation in part read; “Daniel Yaw Domelevo, your unwavering dedication and hard work to public service and commitment to the anti-corruption campaign put you head and shoulder above the rest.
“Your peerless role as the Auditor-in-chief for government drew bipartisan praise across the political aisle. Your unfettered resolve to ensure value for money is second to none. Today, you are celebrated for the set of innovative reforms that restored public audit to its twin mandate of independence and relevance.
“You will be fondly remembered as an unapologetic outlier, a trailblazer of our time. During your term, public bureaucracy and accountability were brought to every Ghanaian doorstep”.
The award was presented by Dr Amanda Coffie, Council member of the CSJ and King Carl Duho Tornam of IMANI Ghana.
The award was received by the brother of the recipient Reverend Stephen Domelevo. In his acceptance speech Reverend Domelevo expressed the sincere gratitude of the former Auditor General who is currently working outside Ghana.
He encouraged anti-corruption crusaders to be courageous in the discharge of their duties regardless of the many obstacles they are bound to face.
The key speakers at the function were Justice Yaw Appau, a Justice of the Supreme Court; Mary Awelana Addah, Programmes Manager at the Ghana Integrity Initiative and Manasseh Azure Awuni, Investigative Journalist and Editor in Chief of the Fourth Estate, Media Foundation for West Africa.
