President Akufo-Addo has sworn in Martin Amidu as Special Prosecutor at the flagstaff house.
It comes after his nomination was unanimously approved by Parliament Tuesday following a grueling vetting.
The former attorney general will become Ghana’s first Special Prosecutor.
Parliament passed the Special Prosecutor Bill making it an Act of Parliament on November 14, 2017.
The Office of the Special Prosecutor is aimed at helping the government handle corruption-related issues among state officials in a nonpartisan manner.
