Minister for Information, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said that the government has ensured that all necessary information needed by the office of the Attorney General has been made available in due time to strengthen the transitional processes in the country.
He indicated that the Akufo-Addo-led administration has not tinkered with the law but has seen to it that adequate information is relayed to the Attorney General “quickly and exhaustively.”
“We haven’t tinkered with the law but what we have done is to ensure that the processes of making information available to the office of the Attorney General is done quickly and exhaustively,” he said.
He highlighted that “at a number of cabinet meetings, it is a matter that has been raised that ministers should do well to comply so that the office of the Attorney General is ceased with all the information that ought to be made available to that office in good time as the custodians and incorporation for the next transition.”
According to him, some conventions must be developed around the transition process; a move that will allow the Attorney General’s Office to come up with more validations that more persons will trust.
In his view, it will go “a long way to negate the requirement for people now to sit at the transition table and seek to interrogate or turn it into a cross examination platform.”
He made these know during the “Law In Crisis” webinar organized by the University of Ghana Law School, where he urged public office holders to be innovative and supportive to the cause of strengthening the various administrative portfolios in the country.
