The newly appointed Auditor General, Mr Daniel Domelovo, has denied ever rejecting his appointment.

Domelovo, sworn-in Friday by President Mahama at the Flagstaff House, said he left town after the offer was made to him to tell his former employers of his new appointment.

He told the media after his swearing in ceremony at the seat of government that "When the appointment was given me, I thought I had to go back to my previous employers.

He added: "I was with the World Bank. It was not good for them to see on news that I have been appointed so I sought permission to go back before I come in and accepted."

His clarification came after the managing editor of the Ghanaian Observer newspaper, Egbert Faibille Jnr, claiming to be speaking on authority said Domelovo has rejected the offer to serve as the Auditor General.

Mr Faiblle said Domelovo rejected the offer because of the controversies surrounding Mahama's last minute appointments.

Domelovo, 55, downplayed the timing of his appointment, adding that the timing rather ensures independence.

"I don't think there will be any problems. One of the things about the Auditor-General is his independence. And so if one administration should appoint you for you to work with another administration, it guarantees your independence better", he said.

Continuing he said: "I would have wished that the country can even adopt this, that, anytime there is an outgoing administration they appoint an Auditor-General so he is not under the influence of the one who appointed him and he owes no allegiance to the one who comes in. So I think we should thank God for this time."
