According to him, the SP could not claim independence from the office of the Attorney-General (AG).

He further added that an attempt to install such an official into office would violate article 88 of Ghana’s 1992 constitution.

He therefore called for a return of the bill to its place of origin, as any attempt to pay attention to it could result in a cause of financial loss to the nation.

He stated that every prosecutor worked within the purview of the office of the AG, and such an exercise was pointless.

Dr. Atuguba asserted that that the SP cannot claim special prosecutorial powers, and as such the intended occupant of that office would only be dependent and ordinary.
