Maverick politician, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong claims the docket for the prosecution of five former appointees under the erstwhile John Mahama administration is ready.
Although he refused to reveal the identities of the four, Mr Agyapong was certain that the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), Dr. Stephen Kwabena Opuni made the list.
“I can state categorically that some documents for the prosecution of some corrupt NDC officials are ready. I know of Opuni’s own and some four others.
“I know all these documents are ready and are in the custody of the CID and I can assure you that they will not go scot-free,” he disclosed on ‘National Agenda’, a morning show on Accra-based Net 2 TV.
The Assin Central Parliamentarian who has vowed to ensure Stephen Opuni goes to jail expressed optimism in the Akufo-Addo led government.
“Opuni will go to jail and I will make sure he pays dearly for his crime. If we refuse to jail him, Ghanaians will vote against us in the [elections] next four years and so we need to get corrupt officials like him away from the country,” Mr Agyapong said.
The outspoken politician further alleged that the actions of the former COCOBOD boss caused financial loss to the state, therefore “it is time we make him pay for his bad deeds”.
He urged government to expedite action in the prosecution of alleged corrupt officials in the Mahama government even before the arrival of the Independent Special Prosecutor (IPP) because Ghanaians are losing patience.
“Yes, Nana Akufo-Addo said there will be Special Prosecutor to deal with these corrupt NDC officials but I think prosecution must start even before the special prosecutor arrives because when people are punished for wrongdoing, Ghana will be a safe place” he added.
