Kissi Agyebeng, the Special Prosecutor nominee has stressed that he is not taking up the role to end corruption abruptly in Ghana.

He said if confirmed as the Special Prosecutor, he cannot end corruption but he will make it unattractive in the country.

Appearing before the Appointments Committee on Thursday, Agyebeng said he is coming with his own strategy to help President Nana Akufo-Addo fight corruption.

“There is no way I can stop corruption. But, I’m going to make corruption very costly to engage in”, he said.

Agyebeng was nominated by the Attorney General, Godfrey Dame Yeboah as Ghana’s next Special Prosecutor.

Mr Agyebeng was called to the Bar in October 2003. He holds a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from the University of Ghana and Master of Laws (LLM) degree from Dalhouse University and Cornell Law School.

He is a law lecturer at the Faculty of Law of the University of Ghana and engaged in private law practice.

A statement signed by Mr Eugene Arhin Director of Communication at the Presidency noted that the President is hopeful parliament will expedite the confirmation process of Mr. Agyebeng so he can assume the position without delay.
