Corruption: OSP announces toll free line to assist Ghanaians report cases

Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng (L) recently called on Minister for Justice & Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame

The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has announced a toll free line to enable all Ghanaians and other persons to call the office and report corruption-related matters for further actions to be taken.

The toll free number, 0800-000-700 was announced on the official twitter handle of the Office of the Special Prosecutor on Sunday September 12.

This move, according to the OSP, is to further help in reducing the corruption menace the country is saddled with at the moment.

The OSP urged everyone to “be part of the solution” in the fight against corruption.

It is recalled that the Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng during his swearing in by President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House on Thursday August 5 vowed to substantially reduce corruption, which he said was one of two pandemics confronting the country currently.

“Mr President, we are confronted by two pandemics. One is a health crisis and its outlook is very macabre. The other is not a health crisis but it is also a pandemic which is corruption itself and corruption related activities.

“The zeal with which your administration has approached the fight in respect of the health crisis are also seen in respect of the other pandemic, which is corruption.

“And as I come into this office, I pledge to the people of Ghana as I said exactly two weeks ago that I am going to work assiduously with deliberation to suppress and repress corruption.”
