The Minority Leader of Ghana’s Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, has charged Kissi Agyebeng, Special Prosecutor (SP), to deal with heads of public institutions who will be found guilty of corrupt practices.
According to him, the SP should not set his eyes only on political office holders as a means of fighting corruption in the West Africa county
He indicated that he should cast his net wide to cover persons who occupy public institutions positions as there is evidence of corrupt practices by some of them.
He said, heads of public institutions have always gone unscathed because politicians are the ones that corruption probes and prosecutions target.
Haruna Iddrisu said on the floor of the House before the approval of Kisdi Agyabeng on July 30 that, “Chief Directors and Chief Executives are left as if they don’t [engage in corruption]. Some of them do, and there is evidence.
“The focus should not only be on petty corruption where you see a policeman stop a trotro driver.”
Kissi Agyebeng will be succeeding Martin Amidu as the Special Prosecutor.
