Former Special Prosecutor of Ghana, Martin A.B.K Amidu has responded to the President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo, after a letter from the presidency was addressed to him accepting his resignation.
Mr Amidu in his response has questioned the incorruptibility of the President and the denial of him interfering in his work as Special Prosecutor.
He questioned him for his refusal to interdict one his appointees (Municipal Chief Executive) when she engaged in an alleged corruption.
“Anti-corruption Moses, kindly tell Ghanaians your reason for refusing to interdict or order the Municipal Chief Executive for Bawku Municipal Assembly to vacate her office, even on voluntary or compulsory leave live you unconstitutionally did to Mr. Domelevo, the constitutionally appointed Auditor General of Ghana”, Amidu said in his response on Friday, November 27.
Mr. Amidu after his resignation on Monday, November 16, the office of the President replied vehemently to deny allegations of interfering in his work.
“Your accusation of interference with your functions simply on account of the meeting the president held with you is perplexing.
“In exercise of what you considered to be your powers under Act 959, you had voluntarily proceeded to produce the Agyapa Report.
“The president had no hand in your work. Without prompting from any quarter within the Executive., you delivered a letter purporting to be a copy of you report to the president.”
