President Nana Akufo-Addo has reiterated the fulfillment of the campaign promise to establish an independent Office of Special Prosecutor to focus on the prosecution of corruption-related offences.
According to Nana Addo, he intentionally appointed Martin Amidu to highlight the independent nature of the Office.
“The Special Prosecutor’s Office is up and running, manned by an experienced, well-known prosecutor, who has been an active member of the opposition National Democratic Congress, and cannot be described, by any stretch of the imagination, as a member or sympathizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party,”Nana Akufo-Addo said on Monday, 9th September 2019, when he addressed the 2019 Conference of the Ghana Bar Association, in Takoradi, in the Western Region.
“His appointment was deliberate to highlight the independent nature of the Office. I am optimistic his work will justify the confidence the Ghanaian people and I have in him,” President Akufo-Addo added.
