In an extensive statement on her Facebook wall, the "plain-speaking" former deputy chief of staff, who played a pivotal role during the era of former President Mills, had a different story to tell about why Martin Amidu was "sacked" by President Mills.
According to Valerie Sawyer, it all began when Martin Amidu, was was then the attorney general, raised some allegations of corruption against his colleague, Betty Mould Iddrisu (Former attorney general and minister of education).
Having told the late Mills of these allegations, Atta Mills decided to call Betty Mould to his office for clarity.
In the process of questioning her, the late president also called for Martin Amidu to join the meeting and put these allegations before Betty Mould.
"There was screaming like a barn owl (Tyto Alba), shrieking like a bobcat (Lynx Rufus), wailing like a banshee (some call it Ignis Faatus), prancing around like an orangutan (Pongo Abelii/Pongo Pygmaeus), use of language and gestures unbecoming of an appointee towards a sitting President, even attempts in chimpanzee (Pan Troglodytes) style to physically assault a sitting President," Valerie Sawyer revealed.
Valerie Sawyer's account is in sharp contrast with what Martin Amidu told the vetting committee. The special prosecutor had revealed that he was "close friends" with President Mills and that he was not sacked.
"I can assure you that I was not dismissed for insubordination…there is a court judgment that stated that my dismissal was unlawful. So if anybody gives the impression that I was dismissed for insubordination, he should go to the court and read the judgment,” Martin Amidu argued on the Vetting table.
These revelations by Dr Valerie Sawyer gives us a peep of the major secret development that occurred during the Mills era at the Flagstaff House.
