Staunch member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and close relation to President Akufo-Addo has revealed that the office of the Special Prosecutor obtained the highest budgetary allocation from the 2019 budget.
Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko posted on his Facebook wall that in the area of the fight against corruption, Martin Amidu’s office was given a total of GHS 180,160,231.
He, however, did not give any breakdown or explanation to suggest whether the mentioned institution has received the allocated funds from the budget.
His revelation comes after the Special Prosecutor lamented on the challenges impeding his outfit from fully functioning as expected.
According to Martin Amidu, his outfit is heavily under-resourced, thus, causing him to function at a snail's pace.
Martin Amidu has come under a lot of public criticism for failing to deliver his mandate by successfully prosecuting corrupt officials, a year and half into office.
In other news, former president, John Dramani Mahama, has also called on the government to withdraw the planned introduction of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) in the basic school curriculum.
In a post on Facebook, sighted by YEN.com.gh, the former president asked the government to “immediately withdraw” its policy to promote sexuality, sexuality types and practice among young children as the CSE Guidelines implicitly advocates.
His call comes after the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Most Rev. Philip Naameh of the Catholic Bishops Conference, Rev. Dr. Paul Frimpong-Manso and National Chief Imam Sheikh Nuhu Sharubutu, made their stance known on the issue of sexuality among kids.
