The letter, signed by Chief-of-Staff Julius Debrah, said the appointment takes effect on December 23 and that he must confirm his acceptance of the appointment by Wednesday, 28th December 2016.

It said:“His Excellency the President, John Dramani Mahama, acting in consultation with the Council of State, accordance with Article 70 of the 1992 Constitution, has appointed you as Auditor-General with effect from 23rd December 2016.

“Until the approval of the Report of the Prof. Boandoh Committee on Emoluments, the salary and allowances payable to the facilities and privileges available to you shall be indicated in the Prof. Ewurama Addy Committee Report.

“The provisions of the Article 146 of the 1992 Constitution relating to the removal of from Office of a Justice of the Superior Court of Judicature Shall apply to you.”

President Mahama has been roundly condemned for his 'last minute' appointments.

Former Attorney General Martin Amidu said the president is acting with "impunity" and that the incoming government of president-elect Nana Akufo-Addo must reverse the last minute appointments.

He said: "...How come this Looter Government is so arrogant even after the people have spoken decisively on the only occasion one can call a representative ballot since December 2008? Impunity! But this impunity can be curbed by constitutional means to the regret of this outgoing Government after 7th January 2017.”
