The Special Prosecutor nominee, Martin Amidu has confidently stated that he is ready to answer any question regarding his appointment when he appears before Parliament for vetting.
According to Mr. Martin Amidu, some people are making comments about his appointment but he will answer the questions when he appears before parliament.
Although he is a member of the NDC, Mr. Amidu has been an avid critic of his party, especially prior to the 2016 election, where he wrote some disparaging articles against the then government led by John Dramani Mahama, describing the administration as corrupt.
This led to some friction between Mr. Amidu and some members of the party.
When he was quizzed by OtecFm’s News Editor, Mr. John Antwi Bosiako on Friday, January 12, 2018, on an allegation from his party members that for the past 13 years he has not paid his dues, Mr. Martin Amidu said: “let them say what they want to say”.
“When I go to parliament they may ask me that question then I answer so you ought to let us leave the matter and wait until the president sent the nomination to parliament and has concluded its writ and decided positively or negatively,” Mr. Amidu stated.
Martin Amidu, a former Attorney General, was named as the Special Prosecutor by the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Thursday, January 11, 2018.
He is expected to be approved by Parliament in the coming days.
