The resignation of the first special prosecutor, Martin Amidu, came with a lot of controversies amidst media debates.
President Akufo-Addo, through his lawyer, Nana Asante Bediatuo, engaged the first special prosecutor when he raised all forms of concerns.
In spite of all these, Ghana’s President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has stated that he has no regret appointing Martin Amidu as the country’s first Special Prosecutor.
“In spite of the unfortunate events that led to the departure of the first occupant of the office, I do not regret making that appointment,” he said.
Akufo-Addo insists that contrary to Amidu's claims of the office not being adequately resourced, the office was fully resourced for him to undertake its work without any problem.
He made this known during the swearing-in of Kissi Agyebeng as the country's second special prosecutor.
President Akufo-Addo, however, noted that Agyebeng will be given all the support he requires to make his work easy.
