President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reassured Ghanaians that the Special Prosecutor would “deal with” all corrupt officials, irrespective of their party affiliation.
Speaking at this year’s media encounter at the Jubilee House, President Akufo-Addo said he has confidence in the Office of the Special Prosecutor to deal with corrupt government officials, adding that, “the Office is expected to get rid of the fear of partisan prosecution among Ghanaians”.
“Let me state again that, current office holders are as likely to be investigated and prosecuted by the Special Prosecutor if a case is made out against them, as past office holders,” President Akufo-Addo said.
President Akufo-Addo also reiterated the need for the application of the rule of law at all times to ensure fairness in all dealings.
The President also expressed confidence in his appointees to not engage in any corrupt practices because no member of his administration will be shielded if found culpable of any wrongdoing.
