The former Special Prosecutor has questioned the notion that people carry that he wanted to get at the Finance Minister, Hon. Ken Ofori Atta.
According to him, he has known the minister too well and was even in his house when he was working on the Agyapa Risk Assessment report.
Therefore, he was surprised that the minister would allegedly go for him. According to him, being in government doesn’t warrant that when one is dissatisfied about a report, he should go after the person involved in the write-up.
“The fact that you are in government doesn’t mean that when you are dissatisfied about a report, you go after the person or the fellow. The Minister of Finance has been my friend for years; why will I go for him?
He expressed surprise at his behaviour since he had a chat with him during the preparation of the risk assessment, when the Finance Minister came by his house on October 21, 2020. According to him, he was not expecting the minister to allegedly come at him in the manner he is coming at him.
According to him, he is ready to wash the dirty linen of anyone who wants to tarnish his image and push him to talk.
“When I was writing the report, didn’t he come to this house? Was he not here on 21 October? What did I tell him? Why is he now churning out information about me and targets and all that? Should I come out? Let’s stop it and I say let’s stop it before we wash dirty linen in public. I’ll do so without fear or favour, even to the extent that if my life will be taken for speaking the truth and defending the Constitution of Ghana, as by law established, I’ll do so,” he stated.
Exactly a few weeks ago, Martin Amidu on Monday tendered in a letter to resign from his post as Special Prosecutor following his appointment in 2018.
