National Organizer of the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams has indicated Martin Amidu has what it takes to hold the Special Prosecutor office.
According to him, having served as Deputy Attorney and Attorney Generals respectively makes Mr. Amidu the right man for the position.
After a special cabinet meeting at the Flagstaff House, the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo on Thursday January 11, appointed Martin Amidu to be the first Special Prosecutor.
Speaking on The Pulse on Joy News channel on Multi TV, Mr. Adams said “Martin Amidu is a Ghanaian who’s a lawyer and former Attorney General; he’s not being tried in any court so the criteria makes him qualifies”.
The appointment comes barely a month after Nana Akufo-Addo assented to the bill which was passed by parliament despite a vigorous debate.
If parliament confirms him, Martin Amidu, a man who earned his nickname ‘Citizen Vigilante’ for his no-nonsense stance and continues fight against corruption, particularly in his own party NDC, will become the first Special Prosecutor.
