In the wake of the revelation that Woyome had caused a GHc51.2 million financial loss to the state, Amidu secured a judgment from the Supreme Court in a bid to retrieve the money from Woyome.
The money is yet to be recovered from the businessman, and in that respect, political pundits have argued that Amidu’s appointment is an attempt to revisit the case.
Amidu would commence his duties once Parliament approves the appointment after they return from their holiday break.
