President Akuf-Addo has insisted he did everything on his part to ensure former special prosecutor, Martin Amidu succeed in his office.
Speaking at the swearing-in ceremony of Kissi Agyebeng as new special prosecutor, the President said he had no regrets appointing Amidu despite the unfortunate events that led to his departure.
“In spite of the unfortunate events that led to the departure of the first occupant of the office, I do not regret making that appointment. On my part as the president of the republic, I ensured that the office was adequately resourced to enable it to carry out its mandate.”
“I am however consoled by the often-cited statement that there is no need of crying over spilled milk. So when the Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame on April 16, 2021, nominated Mr. Kissi Agyebeng through Section 13, clause 3 of Article 959 for consideration as the second occupant of the office, I accepted the nomination because his qualifications are clear that he is eminently qualified to occupy the office.”
