Special Prosecutor will be useless if… - Asiedu Nketia

Asiedu Nketia said it will be politically suicidal if the President appoints the prosecutor from the ruling New Patriotic Party.

According to him, the office will not fight corrupt practices if it only on focus officials in the erstwhile administration.

He said it will be politically suicidal if the President appoints the prosecutor from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Speaking on Accra-based Asempa FM, he said "I think the Special Prosecutor will be a waste of time and resources if the President appoints an NPP lawyer. If that is what they want to do, then I am sorry to say it will be a waste of time because they will end up prosecuting only NDC members."

His comment comes at the back of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo approving the Special Prosecutor Bill into law.

Per the Act, an independent prosecutor will head the office and prosecute corruption cases by officials of the State.

He said appointees in the erstwhile of the NDC did nothing wrong to be coerced by the appointment of the Special Prosecutor.
