Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

M&J Saga: AG Not Qualified To Investigate says FIDA International Veep

NEW. Watch live television from Ghana plus the latest Ghanaian movies plus OBE TV.

Ms Ursula Owusu, Vice President of FIDA International and Immediate Past President of FIDA Ghana says the decision by President Mills to send the Attorney-General to the UK to fish for additional information on the Mabey&Johnson scandal, is a slap in the face of anti-corruption agencies and institutions set-up by the state.

According to her, the Attorney-General was not the right person for President Mills’ mission since “the A-G does not have the capacity to conduct investigations.”

“We have the BNI, CHRAJ, SFO and CID, these are the bodies given the power (by the constitution) and who have the knowledge to investigate such issues…the Attorney General only gives directives…makes some additions and subtractions and sends a case to court…the expertise to tackle such issues, everyone has a basic training but we have specialists in every field. The Attorney General…she should have allowed the appropriate body to investigate before she even comes in,” she advised.

She alleged that the President may “want to handle the issue just like the Muntaka Saga” where he instructed the National Security Council (NSC) to investigate instead of the constitutionally mandated Commission of Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).

“Already there are several evidence…details of bank accounts have been revealed…The evidence is over here…a court of competent jurisdiction have proven that they (M&J) paid (bribes) as shown in the evidence,” Ursula said.
