The National Organizer of Ghana’s largest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has claimed that the newly appointed Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, cannot execute his mandate in an independent manner.
Speaking in an interview on TV3’s News 360 on Thursday January 11, 2018, he stated that the SP would end up executing a witch-hunting exercise against members of the NDC.
In a report by 3news.com, he further stated that Amidu’s posture since the Akufo-Addo-led government began work shows that he is still a bitter man and anti-NDC.
Martin Amidu, a member of the NDC, was appointed as the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice but was relieved of the position.
According to Kofi Adams, Amidu, has on a number of occasions refused to consider himself as a member of the party.
He went on to say that the experienced lawyer disrespected the party when he failed to appear before the party’s disciplinary committee over some comments attributed to him.
“We have made it very clear that he is not independent, he is a bitter person and he is there to witch-hunt NDC members”, Adams concluded.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Thursday January 11, 2018, announced that Ghana’s first Special Prosecutor would be Martin Alamisi Burnes Kaiser Amidu, if his nomination is approved by Parliament.
