However, according to the former Attorney General, the people voted against “patronage, cronyism, ethnicity and political party cryptocracy” which is a clear expression of the sovereign will of Ghanaians for “accountability, transparency and fairness” in governance to all citizens without fear or favour.

"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," he said.

He also threw jabs at the previous fifth and sixth parliaments for acts of corruption, stating Ghanaians hereafter "expect and demand a total brake with the immediate past practices of the parliaments which were reduced into appendages of the executive chariot in looting the national purse."

Martin Amidu further stated, "The expectations of Ghanaians that the President and the 7th Parliament would for the first time since 2009 indeed render selfless service to the people of Ghana and not champion their corrupt self-interest and their political party’s myopic corrupt self-interest was demonstrated by the events that unfolded on Friday 6th January 2017 at the concluding deliberations of the Sixth Parliament under the Fourth Republican Constitution, 1992."
