Special Prosecutor Law
In his speech, the President said that even though the Special Prosecutor Bill has raised some controversies, he is hopeful that its full implementation would help root out Corruption in Ghana’s body politic.
He added that both past and present public office holders will be subjected to the scrutiny of the Special Prosecutor law.
The three Development Authorities
The President said he is hopeful that the three laws that set up the three development authorities will go a long way to deliver development at the grass root of the Ghanaian society.
The President said since the Zongo development fund has found expression in the laws of Ghana, he is certain all Zongo communities in Ghana would find a new energy for their transformation.
