Agona East Member of Parliament (MP) has called on Ghanaians to be rest assured that Martin Amidu will do a good job when he assumes office as Special Prosecutor.
The President, Nana Akufo-Addo announced citizen vigilante, Martin Amidu as the Special Prosecutor for the newly created office of the Independent Prosecutor last week.
In a brief announcement at the Flagstaff House, after a major cabinet meeting, the president commended the public spiritedness of the man widely acclaimed as an anti-corruption crusader, a bulwark in the fight against corruption.
There have been mixed reactions to the announcement of Martin Amidu as the President’s choice to occupy the position of Special Prosecutor.
While some believe the former Attorney General will pursue corrupt officials in the former administration, others are of the opinion that he will not spare corrupt officials in Nana Addo’s administration as well.
The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has also warned appointees of this administration to abstain from acts of corruption as well as Nana Addo cannot shield them from the Special Prosecutor.
“With the appointment of Martin Amidu, the message is very clear that he [President Akufo-Addo] is very serious about dealing with this issue [corruption]. It is not a partisan issue; you can have corrupt people across the partisan divide.
“The message is that not even the President can protect you if you are corrupt,” he indicated.
The opinion of the Vice President, has been subscribed to by the Agona Est MP, Queenster Pokuah Sawyerr who believes Martin Amidu will not ‘disappoint’.
She posted on her Facebook Wall that Martin Amidu will show her ‘true colors’ and that ‘history will be repeated and the citizens will make their final judgements…..OBAATANPA!’
