- US ambassador to Ghana has urged president Akufo-Addo to deal with all corrupt public officials
- Parliament has passed the special prosecutor's bill so as to deal with corrupt officials
The United States is entreating president of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo not to relent in efforts to prosecute corrupt officials.
US ambassador to Ghana, Robert Jackson, makes the case that this move by the president will go a long way to ensure sanity in the public purse.
Speaking at the annual general meeting of the American Chamber of Commerce, Ambassador Jackson says even though Nana Addo is on track to safeguarding the public purse, more still needs to be done.
“We applaud President Akufo-Addo’s focus on making Ghana a better place to do business. Indeed, the government has taken important steps to improve business processes, lower taxes, and reform customs clearance processes,” the ambassador revealed.
Meanwhile, parliament has passed the Special Prosecutor's Bill amidst heated controversy over whether the prospective Special Prosecutor should be immune from prosecution.
Attorney general, Gloria Akufo, has revealed that investigations are currently underway into cases of corruption in the erstwhile Mahama administration.
