Special Prosecutor-nominee Kissi Agyabeng says he cannot stop corruption but will make it a costly venture.
He told the appointments committee at his ongoing vetting that not even God can stop corruption.
“Hon. Chair there was a reference to heavy shoes of a named individual. Hon. Chair I’ll like to state that I will prefer to wear my own shoes in the sense that I am my own man and I’m coming with my own experiences and professional training.
He went on “in this quest, my conscience and knowledge of the law are going to be my guide. My strategy is that Hon. Chair I’m not naive to assume that I’m coming to stop corruption.”
”There’s no way I can stop corruption. God Himself will not even acclaim to that. But I’m going to make corruption very costly, very very costly to engage in’” he stated.
Kissi Agyabeng, a criminal law lecturer, and a practitioner will replace Martin Amidu as the second Special Prosecutor Ghana has had.
Mr Amidu resigned from office last year accusing President Akufo-Addo of interference following his work on the controversial Agyapa Royalties deal.
