Former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has launched a scathing critique against his successor, Kissi Agyebeng, alleging the illegal withholding of salaries for government teachers. Teacher unions, including the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, have accused the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) of blocking the salaries of over one thousand teachers.

Amidu contends that such actions by the Special Prosecutor are without legal basis, asserting that the Office of the Special Prosecutor Act, 2017 (Act 959), does not empower the OSP to suspend teachers’ salaries without specific allegations of corruption falling under defined offenses.

In his statement, Amidu further criticized Agyebeng, accusing him of misconduct and unauthorized investigations into the payroll of teacher unions. He questioned the moral authority of Agyebeng to engage in such actions and alleged corruption within the OSP’s operations.

Amidu’s accusations add to the ongoing scrutiny of Agyebeng’s tenure, with claims of abuse of power and lawlessness since assuming office. The controversy highlights the challenges facing the Special Prosecutor’s office and raises questions about its adherence to legal protocols.
