National Communications Director of the ruling New Patriotic Party Mr Yaw Buaben Asamoa says Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng can’t blame his inability to prosecute corrupt officials for the 5 months delay by the government in establishing a board for his office.
“Strategically, a board shouldn’t be the biggest hindrance”, Mr Yaw Boaben Asamoa said on Joy News’ programme Newsfile monitored by MyNewsGH.com.
Defending his government, the National Communications Director insisted that, setting up a board by the government is not a big deal.
“A board is the duty of the government. A board is institutional therefore all government has to do is to prompt these institutions to bring their people to the board. As I told you already, a board is designed to accommodate all the anti-corruption agencies, so fixing a board shouldn’t be a problem”.
Meanwhile, Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Abdul Malik Kweku Baako on the same show said the five months delay in establishing a board for the OSP is unacceptable.
“There may be good reasons, but I am unable to admit that a five-month delay relative to inaugurating the board for that office is acceptable. Because we all know the essential value and the function of the board”, Mr Kweku Baako said.
“Without the board being in place, there are certain things that the office cannot do, even employing personnel,” he added.
