The fight against corruption continues to be a discussion not just by Ghanaians but also foreign diplomats.

Despite the passage of the special prosecutor's bill, sections of the public including the past commissioner of CHRAJ, Emile Short, who wonders why the government is delaying in the fight against corruption.

US ambassador to Ghana, Robert Porter Jackson, shares a different view of the argument. He is arguing that Nana Addo is given ample time in his quest to fight away corruption.

The ambassador says he is very confident the current government led by President Nana Addo Dankwa AKufo-Addo will tackle the canker head-on.

“So, let’s give the government a little more time. They haven’t been in office a year yet and it is important to pass things like the Special Prosecutor’s Bill," he revealed in an interview with Starr FM.

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.

Attorney general, Gloria Akufo, has revealed that investigations are currently underway into cases of corruption in the erstwhile Mahama administration.
