You Are Wasting Tax Payers’ Money – 43-Year-Old Special Prosecutor Slammed Over 3.5 Million Armoured Cars Request
Ghanaian broadcast journalist and host of Good Evening Ghana, Paul Adom Otchere, has called on the Auditor-General (AG) to investigate 43-year-old Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng, also a former lawyer for the Tiger Eye P.I, over his request for armored cars, including a luxurious Mercedes Benz.
Fuming on his evening program, Adom Otchere asserted that the first prosecutor of the state, Martin Amidu, for over thirteen (13) years since becoming an AG, did not request a bulletproof vehicle.
The broadcast journalist further accused Kissi Agyabeng of embezzling taxpayers’ funds, which contributed to the current economic catastrophe, the country faces.
It would be recalled that in November 2023 the Special Prosecutor in a press conference, stated that he would consider leaving the job if he was faced with challenges that are “unbearable”.
According to Paul, the SP spending 3.5 million Ghana Cedi of taxpayers’ funds to purchase bulletproof cars, would not guarantee his resignation and probe the AG to investigate the matters.
Backing his claim with Article 187 (2) of the 1992 Consitution of Ghana, Adom Otchere charged the AG to execute his mandates.
”He has been paid the money, the government has acceded to his demand, where are the cars, has he bought them does he use them… The Auditor General should audit him…….
He thinks we are not going to get to that story….. how can you use taxpayers’ money for that….. 43-year-old boy you make this request and say government buy me S Class….., Adom Otchere stated.”
Agyebeng was nominated on 26 April 2021 by the Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, to replace Martin Amidu, the former Special Prosecutor who resigned on 16 November 2020.
The nomination was in accordance with section 13(8) of the Special Prosecutor Act 2017 (Act 959) which states that; “When the position of the Special Prosecutor becomes vacant, the president shall, within six months, appoint another qualified person for that portfolio.
