Private legal practitioner Martin Kpebu says he is optimistic that the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) will unravel the source of the money allegedly stolen from the Abelemkpe residence of the former Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Abena Dapaah.
The OSP confirmed on Monday, July 24 that Dapaah had been arrested over suspected corruption.
Officials from the OSP subsequently conducted a search at the home of Madam Dapaah.
Her arrest comes after the OSP was inundated with numerous reports urging the immediate investigation of a significant sum of money stolen from the premises of the former minister.
Speaking on Eyewitness News on Citi FM, Lawyer Kpebu said he is confident that the OSP will do a good job in the matter.
“I am very confident that the OSP will get us something because the way Madam Dapaah has been able to come out swiftly is an indication that all is not well, and I am confident that we will get something from her.”
On his part, a political science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Prof. Ransford Gyampo, applauded Madam Dapaah for stepping down as sanitation minister for investigations to proceed.
“She also promised that she was going to cooperate with any investigative body that may want to investigate the matter and expressed the hope that she may come out exonerated.
“I am enthused and excited about this because, in Ghana, we don’t resign. We don’t resign. So, I am very happy that she decided to go that route of resigning.”
