The extension of Auditor-General Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu contract for another two years has met mixed reactions on social media.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has extended the contract of the Auditor-General who was due for statutory retirement on August 1, 2024.

A notice to the staff  read “I wish to bring to the information of all staff that His Excellency the President of the Republic of Ghana, has extended the tenure of the office of the Auditor General, Mr. Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu for the next two years”

“Mr. Johnson Akuamoah Asiedu was due for statutory retirement on August 1, 2024. The Service extends its congratulations to our Auditor General on the extension of his appointment. Thank you,” Part of the notice read.

Reacting to this, some social media users described the extension of contract as “post retirement contract”

Others said former Auditor-General of Ghana, Daniel Yaw Domelevo should have been given this extension of contract.

“Ghanaians wanted Domelovo to be given this but the mother serpent of corruption, the clearing Agent, the head of Akyem sakawa mafia, and head of criminal cartel @NAkufoAddo said NO!” One user wrote.

“Post retirement contract. Naa this country is funny, when the two years is up, he turn post graduate be that, he go continue masters then phd all”

“Meanwhile, Domelevo, who was surcharging unauthorised payments, was sacked upon with the excuse that he reached the statutory retirement age of 60. Nyaho Tamakloe warned us that Akufo Addo’s presidency would be a bitter lesson for Ghanaians ”

“For all the young ones who haven’t yet read George Orwell’s animal farm, please don’t bother reading it. It is playing out right before you. It’s been playing for 7 years. Just get the names of the characters in the book and I’ll help you do the mapping. Animal farm papa paaaa!”

“Ghanaians wanted Domelovo to be given this but the mother serpent of corruption, the clearing Agent, the head of Akyem sakawa mafia, and head of criminal cartel @NAkufoAddo said NO!”

“”History will never forget Akufo-Addo as the worst president ever . Idi Amin will be jealous of Akufo-Addo”

“This contract will only exist as long as NPP are in government which is ending by January 6th 2025. After that, it will be useless.”

“Biggest mistake Ghanaians ever made was to vote for this man”

“Albert @albert_senyo 2h @Gen_Buhari_ Respectfully, the president is a contradiction of himself. He told us no retiring public officer would be given contract. Domelevo was chased out of office because we were told he had attained the retirement age of 60. What has changed ? Isn’t this contradiction ?”

“The circumstances surrounding his appointment and any contractual arrangements remain subject to scrutiny yet, Akuffo Addo finds it convenient to extend Asiedu’s contract even after the latter retired two years ago”

“He asks one person to go on leave and subsequently forcefully retires them for exposing his associates. For another person, he gives a two-year contract extension to continue acting to fight corruption. Ghana!”

“You must be fantastically corrupt for Akuffo Addo to be willing to keep you in that office even when your retirement is due .. #Domelevo shall live long”
