Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Inusah Fuseini, has hailed the appointment of Martin Amidu as the Special Prosecutor.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP has expressed excitement of the newly appointed Special Prosecutor describing him as a fiercely independent person who is not likely to be influenced by external forces.
He added that Mr. Amidu has a reputation to protect therefore he is sure that he will not compromise that for anyone stating that he is convinced that he will go after that President if he is engaged in corruption.
He stated,“Martin Amidu is fiercely independent and I can vouch for that. Sometimes you want to describe him as an unruly horse, if you release him you might not be able to control him. He has strong views on matters and he’s prepared to fight in an empty room till he succeeds in what he’s doing. Martin Amidu as a partisan political activist and Martin Amidu as an anti-corruption crusader are two different persons. I don’t think that his association with a political party will in anyway cloud his judgment and performance when he’s dealing with corruption cases.”
He added: “I know Martin Amidu to be very diligent, hardworking and a dexterous man who will apply the law to the fact and make a decision knowing that any decision might be subject to challenge in court. He brings into office, a huge reputation of anti-corruption crusader. He has a reputation to protect. If you know Martin Amidu, he’ll go for people who have engaged in corruption no matter whose ox is gored. I have reason to believe that if Martin Amidu is convinced that President Akufo Addo is doing something untoward and is corruption related, he’ll go for him.”
