Senior Minister, Yaw osafo Maafo, has joined the growing number of Ghanaians who have began openly expressing disquiet over what appears to be non action from the office of the Special Prosecutor, in the matter of prosecuting corrupt officials.
In a reach out to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s support base, the Senior Minister said he was kindred spirit himself in the frustrating disappointment of the expectations of Ghanaians that the SP is still not prosecuting almost a year into his appointment.
“The way we expected that the office will be when created, it has not been that way for us, for me it has not been. We are all here, we are investigating things and things will come out. I know things have delayed and people are beginning to be despair but I assure people that soon people will see what we are doing.”
The Senior Minister’s take resonates with a recent call out by former President Jerry John Rawlings who also said he was at a loss as to what was keeping Martin Alamisi Amidu, from dragging corrupt officials to the court.
Martin Aidu himself has pleaded for more time insisting that he will soon start prosecutions but that he needs to have his case facts tight, rather than rush to court out of emotions, since successful prosecutions require tact.
Amidu, who has made a reputation for himself as a hater of appointees of the erstwhile Mills and Mahama governments, in which he had served at a point as Attorney General, has his appointment as the first SP seen as an attempt by President Akufo-Addo to use his bitterness against his own party against the NDC.
