- A lawyer, Kwame Osei Prempeh, has slammed the efforts of the Akufo-Addo administration to fight corruption
- According to him, the government's promise to deal with it was mere political talk
A former deputy attorney-general, Kwame Osei Prempeh, has argued that President Akufo-Addo’s fight against corruption is political talk and nothing else.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, he stated that the government is incapable of fighting corruption, because there is the need for hardcore evidence to prove cases.
Prempeh added that the state agencies could have played a better role if evidences presented were strong enough to prosecute people accused of corruption.

He added that the attorney-general does not conduct investigations, but instead relies on security agencies to work.
The Akufo-Addo-led government, in the year 2017, established the Office of the Special Prosecutor, headed by former attorney-general, Martin Amidu.
Challenges facing the office have however come to the attention as Amidu often releases information about the his inability to execute his mandate.
This, he explains, is because his office is not well resourced to work, aside the fact that it operates from a 3-bedroom apartment.
