Ghana’s Independent Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has been assigned two officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service according to a document.
A communique sighted by YEN.com.gh, with reference number TB/HQRS.1/VOL 16/99 assigned two officers to the citizen vigilante to help him do his work to the shame of his critics.
What is not known is whether these two police investigators will help whip him into action or he will continue to do things at his own pace.
Many have complained that Amidu for over a year now since he assumed office, has not lived up to expectation.
They are also of the view that he has not investigated and prosecuted a single individual of any corrupt act which defeats the purpose for the existence of his office.
Recently, Senior Minister Yaw Osafo-Maafo also took a swipe at him, at a public event, expressing disappointment in Amidu as he was not doing what was required of him.
“The way we expected that the office will be when created, it has not been that way for us, for me, it has not been. We are all here, we are investigating things and things will come out. I know things have delayed and people are beginning to be despair but I assure people that soon people will see what we are doing,” he stated.
Former Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry under the erstwhile John Mahama administration, Murtala Ibrahim Mohammed recently observed that the Martin Amidu himself is a perfect candidate for corruption prosecution if the current administration is indeed committed to fighting the canker.
He disclosed on Tamale-based Radio Tamale that Mr. Amidu who has lost credibility over time since his appointment has been ‘snoring’ and drawing salary causing financial loss to the state despite budgetary allocations made to his outfit in both the 2017 and 2018 annual budgets.
“This man has been chopping this money and I think he is a perfect candidate for prosecution”, he advocated.
