The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed confidence in the work of the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng following the discontinuation of the tax evasion case filed by his predecessor against Bawku Central MP Mahama Ayariga.
Speaking on Accra-based UTV on Tuesday, 12 October 2021, the party’s Deputy National Organiser, Chief Hamilton Biney said Mr Agyebeng proved he is truly independent by discontinuing the case.
According to him the NDC had lost faith in the office of the Special Prosecutor following its past leader, Martin Amidu’s posture.
Mr Biney said the move by the OSP is an indication that Mr Agyebeng was not set out to vilify opponents of the governing New Patriotic Party.
“This is a strong indication that the OSP is for the good of all when it comes to the issue of fighting corruption, which keeps draining the state”, he said.
He said the posture of the OSP was commendable, adding that going forward, it will spur support from the NDC for his work.
