The Communications Director of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Hon. Yaw Buaben Asamoah has urged the  office of the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu to update Ghanaians about the progress of the fight against corruption in the country.

According to him, Martin Amidu should come out and explain to Ghanaians about the state of corruption in the country and how far he has gotten to ever since he assumed office.

The Special Prosecutor’s Office, which is established under the Office of the Special Prosecutor Act 2017 (Act 959), is one of the highest priorities of the government to fighting corruption.

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Thursday, 12th July 2018, swore-into office the Governing Board of the Office of Special Prosecutor, at a brief ceremony at Jubilee House.

Though not much has since been seen from the office, it appears they have been working behind the scenes and Lawyer Buabeng Asamoa has urged him to publish a list of cases currently at their doorstep for everybody to know the progress so far.

Speaking on Okay FM's 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he said he has much trust in the ability of the office of the Special Prosecutor therefore, expect him to come out with the progress report of his activities since he assumed office.

"I know Mr. Amidu is capable of helping the President fight against corruption in the country . . . that is why the President has made available necessary tools needed to fight against corruption in the country."

He therefore pleaded with Mr. Amidu to come out with the progress of the fight against corruption in the country.
