Member of Parliament for Sagnarigu, Alhassan Bashir Fuseini has served notice that the Minority would not accept Kissi Agyebeng’s appointment as the next Special Prosecutor both on the Appointment Committee and at the plenary.

This follows the president’s acceptance of the nomination of Mr. Kissi Agyebeng and subsequent referral to the Appointment Committee of Parliament for vetting.

Mr. A.B.A Fuseini noted that; “Even before he becomes the SP, he is involved in a huge controversy; this is coming from the members of the ruling government, Kennedy Agyapong, as this SP nominee was handpicked by Gabby Asare Okyere Darko”.

The Sagnarigu MP alleged that the SP nominee has his feet and hands deep in the criminal Agyapa deal, and one of the people who put together and defended the Agyapa deal, and a “puddle of Nana Akufo-Addo”. “How can this guy be a Special prosecutor?” He queried.

Speaking in an interview, he pointed out that, the SP should be an independent person, and if the president would make appointment it should be on merit, and the President, “cannot find people of merit than Kissi Agyebeng?”

“There are so many people with merit who can do this work as SP, high court judges and personalities who have shown commitment to fight corruption, “we know them, they are plenty in the system, Kissi should not be tie to the apron of the NPP”.

“Martin Amidu, was on the verge of investigating Ken Ofori Atta and all the wrong things that happened. By accepting this, the president has indicated to us that he wants a subservient puddle”.
