Kissi Agyebeng has only been into office for few weeks now but a lot is expected from his office already. After what happened to his predecessor Martin Amidu regarding allegations of interference by the Executive, people have expressed doubts about his capability to fight corruption. His age was also an issue of concern prior to his vetting but that concern has been put to rest after he proved his competence during the vetting.
Besides Kissi Agyebeng's academic prowess, he is a lawyer with good standing and qualifies to be a Justice of the Supreme Court. Already, efforts have been made to enhance the work of the Special Prosecutor with the relocation to a new office-complex and the introduction of a too-free line to enable all Ghanaians report cases without any cost.
Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as Kwame APlus has warned the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng not to attempt to investigate the missing excavators and the sputnik vaccine sage else he risks being removed the next morning. He made this assertion when commenting on the news that the Office of the Special Prosecutor has announced toll-free lines to enable Ghanaians report cases of corruption. The news was posted on the Facebook page of Ghanaweb.
Commenting on the development, APlus wrote; " A very good move but please start with what you have. Investigate the missing excavators and the sputnik vaccine saga. Anaa you dey fear? Like they go remove you the next morning".
The intention behind the comment is not clear because in one breadth, APlus is asking the Special Prosecutor to investigate allegations of corruption and then in another, he is cautioning him not to do it because it would result in his removing. Obviously, it is the circumstances that led to Martin Amidu vacating his post that has led to this skepticism.
The Special Prosecutor assured Ghanaians during his vetting that he may not be able to uproot corruption but would initiate efforts to make it highly unattractive. Hopefully, the introduction of the toll-free line is an indication of many more to come.
