Martin Luther Kpebu, a private legal practitioner, has noted that President Akufo-Addo is orchestrating William Kissi Agyebeng’s ousting as Special Prosecutor to appoint a die-hard NPP person for the portfolio.

He says the President wants someone he can totally control, after realising Kissi Agyebeng is not that type of candidate he wanted for the office.

Mr. Kpebu says Ghanaians should not sit aloof to allow the President carry out his agenda of getting the SP out of office.

“We can’t sit for Kissi to just be thrown out of office. Akufo-Addo wants a malleable candidate that will not happen. He wants a die-hard NPP person to be appointed. The type that he will go to bed knowing that no matter what, that person will block any attempt to prosecute he Akufo-Addo and his appointees but that will not happen. Ghana belongs to all of us,” Mr. Kpebu had said on the KeyPoints on TV3 Saturday, May 18, 2024.

His comments come on the back of Martin Amidu’s petition to the President to remove Mr. Agyebeng as the Special Prosecutor.

According to Martin Kpebu, Amidu’s action has only given an opportunity to the President to pursue his agenda since he had asked Kissi Agyebeng to resign some few months ago.

He noted that since the President wanted Mr. Agyebeng out and couldn’t succeed, “now Martin Amidu has served as an opportunity for President Akufo-Addo to get Kissi out. Akufo-Addo had asked Kissi to resign a few months ago. The time he was doing the ‘Ankwaanoma‘,” he said.

“Yes, I know, I also have my sources. People at the presidency, you think people are happy about the things Akufo-Adddo is doing? Yes, he asked him to resign and Kissi said no I’m not going anywhere,” he said in response to host, Alfred Ocansey’s probe if he had evidence to his allegations.


Martin Alamisi Burnes Kaiser Amidu, the former Special Prosecutor, has filed a petition for the impeachment of William Kissi Agyebeng as the current occupant of the office.

Mr Amidu alleges procurement breaches in the purchase of vehicles for the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) and abuses involving judges and the administration of justice as part of his call for Mr. Agyebeng’s impeachment.

Other allegations include violations of citizens’ rights through arrests and detentions, violations of the right to information, and improper appointments of personnel to the office.

Additionally, Mr. Amidu alleges a violation of the right to information when he requested appointment letters and salary details of all OSP staff to be put on a pen drive for him, which Mr. Agyebeng refused.

The petition dated April 30, 2024, was presented to President Akufo-Addo and forwarded to the Chief Justice, Gertrude Torkornoo, on May 6, 2024 for onward processing.

The Chief Justice, according to sources, is determining whether there is a prima facie case to establish a committee for Mr. Agyebeng’s removal as required by the Constitution in Article 146.
