The Eastern Regional Secretary of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mark Oliver Kevor has questioned the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) when office of the special prosecutor would be established as promised.
He has expressed shock over the promise made by the NPP during their campaign period for the establishment of the office for special prosecutor to crack down wrongdoing in the public space describing the situation as a failure.
The office of the special prosecutor is a new initiative by the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government which when established would be assigned to fight against the excessive corruption in the country.
Speaking on Agoo FM’s morning show “Ene Nso Biem” with Eugene Akoto Bamfo, he cited that the ruling government should fulfill its promises to improve the living standards of Ghanaians. “Where is the Office of the special prosecutor promised by the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, he quizzed.
He explained that if the special prosecutor had been appointed, the office would have served just like the FBI and would investigate fictitious deals that would go on in the Government especially probes into allegations connected with Northern Regional NPP Chairman Bugri Naabu, vehicles purchased by minister of fisheries even after the President has asked the various arms of government not to purchase any cars and recent 2.25bn dollar bond issued by Mr. Ken Ofori Atta, Minister for Finance and Economic Planning
He added that the President is only presenting Ghanaians with rhetorics as he is not fulfilling his promise of fighting corruption and that the President and his party members know very well they are only going to serve one term in government.
