"The political divide is both fighting anti-corruption agencies when they are doing their professional work you tag it with some political things, you can't fight corruption by politicising it, and the two political parties will stop and allow the head of anti-corruption agencies to do their work professionally with their staff," he said.

Amidu said the intimidation from government officials would not allow the Auditor General perform his duty as he would be very careful while selecting institutions for auditing of state institutions.

"For instance, Audit Service there is a provision for surcharge if the Auditor General through the report of his staff can not disagree with them and therefore supports their conclusion and surcharges you, the law provides an avenue you can challenge it why personalized politicizing it to the Auditor General, that's intimidation and makes him incapable of performing the anti-corruption duty...," he said.
