I'll prosecute Akufo-Addo's appointees over Agyapa deal if I win


Summary short_text

"I assure you that if I win the December elections I will act on the Agyapa report. The deal is full of corruption and I am going to act on it," Mr Mahama said while on a campaign tour in the Ashanti Region on Saturday November 21.
In a nine-page detailed response to the immediate past Special Prosecutor's resignation letter, the President through Bediatuo Asante, his Secretary, indicated that there was nowhere Martin Amidu expressed an intention to the President to open investigations into the Agyapa matter.
Bediatuo Asante continued: "The real question is what prevented your Office from investigating the alleged corruption-related offences which may have arisen from your assessment of the Agyapa transaction? Having clearly indicated that your report was not a criminal investigation which you are mandated under section 2 of Act 959 to carry out, it is confusing and incomprehensible how you can, in your letter, claim that your report 'discloses several serious corruption and corruption-related offences', without you taking any further step in the matter consistent with your mandate."
