Nana Akufo-Addo, Ghanaian President

Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo has named former Attorney-General Martin Amidu as the anti-graft prosecutor to probe specific cases of corruption including those committed by politicians, Reuters reported.

The appointment follows a rise in corruption especially among public office holders in the West African country.

Amidu briefly served as attorney-general under former president John Mills and his appointment comes after a campaign promise made by Akufo-Addo ahead of elections in 2016.

Ghana’s parliament passed a law in November 2017 enabling the establishment of the office of an independent anti-graft prosecutor to fight corruption and recover looted resources.

On Monday, 9 January 2018, parliament began a hearing into reports that the trade ministry charged foreign investors between $25 000 and $100 000 to enable them to sit close to the president at a recent dinner.
