According to sources very close to the editorial desk of newstodaygh.com, the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo may soon announce the nomination of Kissi Agyebeng to replace Martin Alamisi Burns Kaiser Amidu, who resigned his post on November 15, 2020.
He will eventually be handed the mandate as the anti-corruption agent in this government once he is approved by Parliament for the tough job as Special Prosecutor.
The former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu in his resignation letter cited feedback on his submitted corruption risk assessment on the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions as one of the triggers and the final straw which broke the camel’s back that got him to resign.

He is a lecturer at the University of Ghana school of law, teaching and researching into criminal law, international humanitarian law, international law and corporate law.
