Office of Special Prosecutor will safeguard public purse – Gloria Akuffo

The Attorney General, Ms. Gloria Akufo, has stated that the Office of Special Prosecutor will help safeguard the public purse.

Mrs. Gloria Akufo noted that the office will go a long way to fight corruption in Ghana and prevent corrupt government officials and other office holders from looting and milking the state.

She disclosed this at a two-day Stakeholders’ Meeting on Draft Bill of the Office of the Special Prosecutor in Accra.

According to her, corruption has dire consequences on the social-economic development and international reputation of every country.

She noted that corruption denies a country of revenues needed to fund public administration and national development, undermines trust in government thereby encouraging citizens to evade tax and other legal and civic obligations towards the state.
