The flagbearer of the All People’s Congress (PAC), Hassan Ayariga says one of the reasons the country cannot end the fight against corruption if disunity and involvement of security agencies in politics.
He has therefore said he would institute a national integration system that would harmonize various security agencies in the country.
The system he said will help crack down corruption practices as well as integrate the security agencies to operate uniformly without the interference of politicians.
Mr Ayariga who spoke on A1 Radio added that the birth of the special prosecutor office came from the People’s National Convention (PNC) manifesto which he was then flagbearer in 2012 but got stolen by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and later implemented poorly.
“The idea was to create a space where we can have an independent special prosecutor that can operate without the fear or favorite of any group or individual. And I was determined to make it practical unlike what we have today. The idea of the office of the Special Prosecutor was to be an independent body, and not under the Attorney General’s office which we have today.”
He added that the practice of corruption ought to be stopped hence when the electorate give him the mandate to lead the country in 2021, he will make sure a national database that will be more powerful than the mere existence of the Special Prosecutor is built.
“I will make sure I will strengthen the office of the Special Prosecutor where it will operate independently. Also, I will establish a national database system where it will capture everybody’s status, to monitor what, when, and how they operate. This system will help us to know what happens at where and when regarding an individual and their activities.”
Commenting on when the APC will launch its manifesto, Mr Ayariga assured that it will be launched within the month of September as well as the outdooring of his running mate.
