National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Akamba has accused President Akufo Addo of destroying Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu.
According to him, the Martin Amidu he knew was a strong man who will go all ends to fight corruption, however, under Akufo Addo, Mr Amidu has been selective in fighting corruption related cases.
He told Captain Smart on Angel FM’s Anopa Bofo Morning show that, “all of a sudden, my uncle [Martin Amidu] that I used to know, the NPP has seriously and somehow destroyed that my uncle”.
“Martin Amidu is my relative and I know how strong this man is fighting corruption [but] today as I’m talking to you, there are cases that have come before him and he said he wouldn’t work on them but if they are cases of NDC, he would investigate them,” Mr. Akamba said in Twi.
He cited the PDS saga as a clear case where the Special Prosecutor(SP) has decided not to probe.
“He [SP] said he has no locus to investigate that matter. He will not investigate that [and] he will not mind the people who are complaining”.
In his opinion, the Office of the Special Prosecutor has been rendered useless and he intends to go to court on the matter with Martin Amidu as his lawyer.
