Stop The Attacks Before I Expose Secrets : Martin Amidu Warns

Published

on

Martin Amidu who just bowed out from his role as Special Prosecutor has warned his detractors from attacking him or to face the risk of him coming out to expose secrets that could unsettle government.

In an interview with journalist Umaru Sanda on Thursday, November 19, Mr Martin Alamisi Amidu said he had resolved not to air his grievances through the press.

He was quoted saying, “Please, I have said since I left the office that I was not going to give any press interview about my resignation.”

He added, “I was not going to talk to the press. I am being pushed by so-called responses to me, which contains reference…to speak. But I do not want anybody to blame me when I speak out and it becomes unpalatable.”

Being the first to fill the position of Special Prosecuto, Martin Amidu bowed out from his office citing a number of reasons.

In his resignation letter which flooded the internet he wrote, ”The events of 12th November 2020 removed the only protection I had from the threats and plans directed at me for undertaking the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions anti-corruption assessment report and dictates that I resign as the Special Prosecutor immediately,” he had stated in his resignation letter to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. I should not ordinarily be announcing my resignation to the public myself but the traumatic experience I went through from 20th October 2020 to 2nd November 2020 when I conveyed in a thirteen (13) page letter the conclusions and observations on the analysis of the risk of corruption and anti-corruption assessment on the Report On Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions and Other Matters Related Thereto to the President as Chairman of the National Security Council caution against not bringing my resignation as the Special Prosecutor with immediate to the notice of the Ghanaian public and the world. The reaction I received for daring to produce the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions anti-corruption report convinces me beyond any reasonable doubt that I was not intended to exercise any independence as the Special Prosecutor in the prevention, investigation, prosecution, and recovery of assets of corruption. My position as the Special Prosecutor has consequently become clearly untenable.”

Moments after Martin’s public statement the Presidency replied denying ever interfering with his work as the Special Prosecutor.

Secretary to the President Nana Asante Bediatuo wrote in a nine-pager, “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 your report to the president.

The secretary’s response also expressed, “The purpose of presenting a copy of the Agyapa report to the president is decipherable from paragraph 32 of your letter to the president in which you indicated that you hoped the report will be ‘used to improve current and future legislative and executive actions to make corruption and corruption-related offences very high-risk enterprise in Ghana.”

Meanwhile, in his recent interview, Martin Amidu warned his detractors to quit attacking him or force him to reveal disturbing secrets.

He said, “So, either the attacks stop or I will defend my integrity even if that means my death. It is something I won by dint of hardwork from the PNDC to date and I am not going to allow anybody, not even the president, to pull that integrity into the mud.”
