Answering questions by members of the vetting committee under parliament's appointment committee, the attorney general and minister designate for justice revealed that the independent prosecutor’s office to be set up by the President will deal specifically with corruption.
“Corruption has become a worrisome problem… and has become a developmental issue. There have been a lot of calls for a solution to be found to it. The proposed Independent Prosecutor‘s office is intended to be one of the ways that will deal specifically with the canker of corruption in the public sector.” Gloria Akuffo revealed.
Gloria Akufo becomes the third female in Ghana's fourth republic to be nominated by a president to be attorney general - a development which has seen gender activists praise Ghana for its respect for women empowerment and affirmative action.
