Ghana's fight against corruption came to a standstill when Mr. Amidu resigned in November Last year. Mr Amidu accused the government of the day due to its lack of commitment in fighting corruption.
Ghana is amongst the most corrupt countries in the world. This does not speak well if its leadership. It also deters potential investors from coming in to help and develop the country. It's remarkable to note that Ghana loses millions yearly due to corruption.
Meanwhile the presidency through the States Attorney and minister for Justice appointed Lawyer Kissi Agybeng as the new Special Prosecutor.
Mr. Kissi Agybeng is a reputable Lawyer of good standing in academia and practice. He has choked so many laurels from his days at Accra Academy through to the University of Ghana.
Meanwhile Seasoned Journalist and CEO of the WADR media has made reservations about the credibility of the newly appointed prosecutor. He has pointed out that the Prosecutor currently is the personal lawyer to the cousin of the President, Gabby Otchere Darko.
This he said has laid credibility issues due to the instrumental nature of Mr Gabby in the government of President Akuffo Addo.
In a Facebook post, Mr Kevin Taylor said
"I have read stories about how Lawyer Kissi Agyebeng is likely to be named as the new Special Prosecutor.
I do not doubt the competence of Kissi Agyebeng as his records with Anas Aremeyaw Anas are visible for everyone to see.
However, Kissi Agyebeng is also the personal Lawyer for the Cousin of Akufo Addo, Gabby Otchere Darko and we know the influence of Gabby in Akufo Addo’s government.
With Gabby’s involvement in glaring corrupt deals like PDS and AGYAPA the biggest question is Can Gabby’s Personal Lawyer, Kissi Agyebeng investigate Gabby Over His Involvements With PDS Scandal As Special Prosecutor?"
This probably should be a reason for concern, because he can be manipulated by the people around him.
Meanwhile President of Imani Ghana Franklin Cudjoe has said that he would be able to do his job appropriately if he cuts all political ties he has with friends in the political arena.
