Impossible to stop corruption

During his vetting, he revealed that it would be impossible to put a stop to corruption in Ghana.

Kissi Agyebeng said if parliament gives him the approval, he will make the practice of corruption a costly venture in order to deter people.

He added that he will instate pressure for progress by ensuring that there is a systemic review of public agencies to help reduce the corruption rate.

Not resigning easily

Knowing how demanding the job can be and how many external interferences could hold him back, he has stated that he would consider leaving the job if he is faced with challenges that are “unbearable”.

Adjebeng said his first thing to do will be to hold on for a little longer before deciding to throw in the towel if it becomes very unbearable.

He was however optimistic that he would not be faced with the situation of having to give up the job due to some challenges.
