political activist and social media communicator for the ruling New Patriotic Party, Sir Obama Pokuase has questioned to know what’s wrong with having Agyebeng as the former lawyer of Anas.
He stated that it was a notorious fact that the Special Prosecutor is Anas Aremyaw Anas’s former lawyer. However, he finds the assertion by some that a potential bias may arise in the Charles Adu-Boadu investigation as farfetched.
“My reasons are that the Special Prosecutor doesn’t have committal powers. He is not a judge! He only investigates and prosecutes. To put it mildly, the OSP is not a Kangaroo Court!” He added.
He also made mentioned that, “If he [SP] presents a weak case before any Court in Ghana, it will be thrown away with the speed of light.”
He further stated:
“Again, Charles will have his day in court. He’ll have legal representation, so where from the jitters?
Don’t forget that President Akufo-Addo, just like his Executive Secretary, Asante Bediatuo are both lawyers. They know the ramifications of the referral.
Are you suggesting the President and his E.S did not consider these red-herring issues before referring the matter to the OSP? Clearly not!
On the contrary, they have absolute confidence in the SP, who has thus far demonstrated professionalism. He’s not the Amidu kinda SP! Rest assured of a good job for God and country.”
