Former president John Dramani Mahama says former special prosecutor, Martin Amidu had a good reason to label President Akufo-Addo, a mother serpent of corruption.
Wrapping up his thank you tour on Wednesday with a public lecture, Mr Mahama said the government has only been paying lip service in its fight against corruption.
“This government is just paying lip service to the fight against corruption, just lip service. Look at the Special Prosecutor’s office, someone like Martin Amidu is a lawyer, a one-time deputy Attorney General and a senior lawyer of his standing.
“And for a person of his stature to resign and say the President is the ‘Mother Serpent of Corruption,’ it is a very serious charge because he has his basis. Several attempts were made to obstruct him from certain cases he was investigating that is why he made those pronouncements,” Mahama added.
