A legal practitioner and Chairman of the Electronic Communications Tribunal, Mr Kissi Agyebeng is expected to be nominated as the next Special Prosecutor (SP).
bibinionline.com gathers that barring any unforeseen circumstances, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will soon announce the nomination of Mr Agyebeng as the anti-corruption czar.
When approved by Parliament, Mr Agyebeng will replace Mr Martin Alamisi Burns Kaiser Amidu, who resigned on November 15, 2020.
Mr Amidu announced his resignation as a special Prosecutor on the 16th of November, 2020, citing political interference by his appointer, President Akufo-Addo for his decision.
