Chairman of the Audit Service Board, Prof. Duah Agyemang says the General Secretary of the NDC Johnson Asiedu Nketia has been dodging his court summons.

According to him, efforts to have Mr. Asiedu Nketia served his court summons over his defamatory statements have proved futile.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he explained that the court yesterday ordered that he should be served on all notices including one sent to the party head quarters where he resides often to undertake his daily activities.

"We were in court yesterday and the court has instructed that he should be served by any means possible.

"However, I received a call from my counsel yesterday that some lawyers have contacted him that their client, Mr. Asiedu Nketia has asked them to open defense in the defamatory case brought against him," he said.

Board Chairman of the Ghana Audit Service, Prof. Edward Dua Agyemang has taken legal action against the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia over allegations of forgery and conflict of interest.

Asiedu Nketia addressing a press conference on Tuesday launched into a tirade against Professor Edward Dua Agyeman, saying the latter lacks integrity to occupy his office.

Asiedu Nketia accused the Akufo-Addo administration of blowing $6million on private investigations into activities of some former appointees of the Mahama government.

He rejected a recently leaked special cabinet audit report indicting some Mahama appointees.

Asiedu Nketia popularly known as General Mosquito argued that the Chairman of the Cabinet Committee integrity was tainted by scandals in the past and does not deserve to hold the position as the Board Chair of the Audit Service.

“It was Prof. Dua Agyeman who in 1983 was banned by the Institute of Chartered Accountants-Ghana from practicing Accountancy and Auditing in Ghana for forging an Audit report for a private firm whose Accounts he’s neither seen nor audited. The person who has been appointed by Nana Akufo-Addo to chair the Audit Service Board and who is being asked to recruit these private firms in the name of Cabinet Committee’s kitty, he’s the person who now has been recycled to Chair the Audit Service Board by Nana Akufo-Addo to fight corruption," Asiedu Nketia said during the press conference.
