We will name, shame and prosecute the corrupt -Special Prosecutor

Published

on


Special Prosecutor Kissi Adjabeng says his office is determined to crack down on corruption through prosecutions and asset recoveries.

A new corruption league table set to be published later in the year is expected to enable his office to document corruption and name and shame peddlers of corruption.

State institutions will be ranked with the most corrupt named, he stated on Tuesday.

“We recognise various corruption rankings, scorings and surveys being carried out. However, it comes down to the nature of the information gathered and the use to which such information is put.

“In sum, we will be documenting corruption, measuring corruption, ascertaining the breeding of corruption, naming and shaming peddlers of corruption, examining the impact of anti-corruption initiatives and taking curative and remedial measures to crack down on corruption through prosecutions and asset recovery and management.

“It is time to move beyond the composite annual ranking of countries on a corruption drop list to own our local narrative and fashion and retool Our reformation by prodding our public sector into real and concrete action against corruption and corrupt practices,” Mr Adjabeng said.

The league table forms part of efforts by the OSP to identify the causes that advance corruption in the public sector to facilitate the prevention of corruption.

Deputy AG Alfred Tuah Yeboah, who launched the table, said his office will continue to work with the OSP to fight corruption.

“Your dumsor demo was useless”

Actor-turned-politician John Dumelo has fired colleague Yvonne Nelson’s activism during the tenure of former President Mahama and described it as useless.

According to him, whatever prompted the Yvonne Nelson-led “Dumsor” demo at the time was ill-thought through and did not represent the situation at the time.

Accosting Yvonne Nelson in the studios of Adom FM, John Dumelo pointed fingers accusingly at the actress. He added that she rushed in organizing people to demonstrate against the Mahama government.

In providing an explanation for why he felt the demo was useless, John Dumelo intimated that former President Mahama solved the dumsor menace before leaving office. Therefore, Yvonne Nelson and her colleagues embarked on a fruitless agenda.

“I don’t believe it was required.” Let me explain why. Because the president (then-president John Mahama) promised to fix the problem at the time. That’s what he stated, and he rectified it before leaving. It’s a proven fact.

“I’m sure people were fed up at that point in time when Yvonne spearheaded the march. As a result, they needed to take action. But (ex-President) Mahama has promised to rectify it.”

The Dumsor Demo in 2015 was a demonstration organized by celebrities and spearheaded by Yvonne Nelson to campaign against the erratic supply of power at the time.

The demonstration received nationwide attention with notable celebrities like Prince David Osei, Van Vicker et al taking part in it.

After several years, John Dumelo has described the demo as useless and urged Yvonne Nelson to stage a similar demonstration against the current NPP administration.
