Former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has once again questioned the commitment of President Nana Akufo-Addo in the fight against corruption.
According to him, the conduct exhibited by the President following the submission of the findings of his Corruption Risk Assessment conducted into the Agyapa deal has demonstrated that his anti-graft campaign is mere rhetoric.
He stated that the President of the Republic was interfering in the performance of his duties in relation to the risk of corruption and anti-corruption assessment on the controversial Agyapa Royalties Transaction.
In a 27-page letter, the former Special Prosecutor revealed that the President had on two different occasions directed him to halt any further investigation into the Agyapa Mineral Royalties deal.
The President also reacted to claims that Mr. Amidu wasn’t paid any salary during the two-year period he served as Special Prosecutor.
Martin Alamisi Burnes Kaiser Amidu is a Ghanaian politician and lawyer who served as Attorney General of Ghana from 2011 to 2012 and then as the First Special Prosecutor of the country from 2018 until his resignation in 2020.
