Akufo-Addo has been freatured in DW Africa over the resignation of the special Prosecutor , Martin Amidu.
The Media wrote; Ghana’s Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Martin Amidu has resigned. The former attorney general accuses President Nana Akufo-Addo of political interference. Amidu said he had become convinced “that I was not intended to exercise any independence” in the job. The prosecutor said he quit after the president tried to get him to “shelve” a report on a plan to sell the country’s future gold royalties to an offshore firm that involved the finance minister, who is also the president’s cousin. Should Ghana be worried about this development?
The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has resigned from his position three years after he was appointed by President Akufo-Addo.
The former Attorney General wrote to the President Nana Akufo-Addo Monday saying his decision is to enable his appointing authority “to take steps to appoint a replacement to that position as required by law.”
