He, therefore, wants urgent steps taken to rectify the existing compensation issues within his Office.

Minority Leader, Haruna Iddirisu also says, the development is evidence of Akufo-Addo’s superficial commitment to the fight against corruption.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with JoyNews, he noted that the failure of government to pay staff of the Office of the Special Prosecutor is an indictment on the whole purpose of establishing the Office.

 

“Incredibly astonishing. I just can’t believe it”, Haruna Iddrisu said.

The MP continued, “President Nana Addo from day one, has never ever been committed to the fight against corruption. He just set up the bureaucracy for the finesse of it. That I have an Office of the Special Prosecutor to compliment the Attorney General in fighting corruption”.
