A communicator of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwabena Marfo has described Martin Amidu the former Special Prosecutor (SP) as wicked because he stabbed the country at the back after he was made the SP in 2018.
Speaking with Kwaku Dawuro on Movement In The Morning Show, Mr. Marfo stated Kissi Agyabeng, the current SP must be applauded for his effort to fight corrupt activities.
He said, ‘’corruption has been one of the things that has fought the progress of the country over the years. Fighting corruption is not mere rhetoric, it is about bringing to the fore the people who are using illegal act for their personal gain. The main reason the SP’s office was created was because there was the need for an autonomous institution, so regardless of one’s political affiliation the person can do the job in the next seven years”.
‘’In the recent half quarter report, Kissi Agyabeng stated he was happy to be the first to bring such a report out. He has also established a website to make it easier for people to report anonymous corruption cases so you wouldn’t have to walk to the office, and to protect their image. Martin Amidu was very wicked, he didn’t have good intentions for the state. It took Kwaku Baako to clear his attack on President Nana Akufo-Addo calling him out as the ‘mother servant of corruption’. Everything shows he did not do anything while the Special Prosecutor’’, he added.

On 16th November 2020, he resigned from office with with he described as ‘’political interference in the independence of his office’’
