Ghana’s foremost citizen vigilante, Martin Amidu is alleging President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is under pressure from some prominent chiefs to soften his stance on the fight against corruption.
According to the former Attorney Genera and anti-corruption campaigner, these chiefs are doing so in the name of reconciliation.

“I assure every Ghanaian that the evidence of criminal and unconstitutional conduct is overwhelming, but unconstitutional attempts are being made through influential chiefs and elders to let bygones be bygones contrary to the demands of the Constitution for accountability, transparency and fairness in governance. May the 7th Parliament and the President remember that even walls have ears and we hear the attempts at trying to compromise the President’s anti-corruption agenda in the name of reconciliation. The President’s anti-corruption drive will be still-born with such compromises and reconciliations,” Mr Martin Amidu revealed in his latest epistle.
Mr Amidu also opined that Ghana’s 5th and 6th parliaments were seriously corrupt.
“The abuse of this country by the Looter Government with the active cooperation of the 5th and 6th Parliaments are well known and the welcome disapproval shown publicly by the then Minority Leader, Honourable Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu on 6th January 2017 is, therefore, good news and a harbinger of the anticipations for the positive changes to come…,” he added.
He, however, urged and encouraged President Akufo-Addo to remain steadfast and focused in his fight against corruption.
