Special Prosecutor-nominee Kissi Agyabeng says he cannot stop corruption but will make it a costly venture.
He told the appointments committee at his ongoing vetting that not even God can stop corruption.
â€œHon. Chair there was a reference to heavy shoes of a named individual. Hon. Chair Iâ€™ll like to state that I will prefer to wear my own shoes in the sense that I am my own man and Iâ€™m coming with my own experiences and professional training.
He went on â€œin this quest, my conscience and knowledge of the law are going to be my guide. My strategy is that Hon. Chair Iâ€™m not naive to assume that Iâ€™m coming to stop corruption.â€
â€Thereâ€™s no way I can stop corruption. God Himself will not even acclaim to that. But Iâ€™m going to make corruption very costly, very very costly to engage inâ€™â€ he stated.
Kissi Agyabeng, a criminal law lecturer, and a practitioner will replace Martin Amidu as the second Special Prosecutor Ghana has had.
Mr Amidu resigned from office last year accusing President Akufo-Addo of interference following his work on the controversial Agyapa Royalties deal.
