In a letter by Mr Domelevo dated July 3, 2020, outlines a series of reasons why he believes the directive leaves much to be described including what he described as bad faith on the part of the Presidency.”

In a response from Secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo, the move was undertaken in consideration of the year 2020 which was excluded from the directive which only spanned 2017 to 2019.

“We noted that the said letter dated is dated 3rd July, 2020, with an official reference number from the office of the Auditor-General, although you commenced your leave on 1st July, 2020,” he said.

“If, however you have decided to include your annual leave of for the year 2020, then it is expected that you will resume work after a well-deserved leave of 167 working days, with effect from 1st July, 2020,” the Presidency explained.
