I don't work because of Awards-Martin Amidu

Written by  Feb 13, 2018
President Akufo-Addo’s nominee for the Office of Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, says he has shied away from accepting awards because of his selflessness. Appearing before Parliament’s Appointments Committee, the former attorney general said he does not work for award. “People called me about my case at the Supreme Court and offered me awards but I told them that it wasn’t about me, it’s about Ghana,” the Citizen Vigilante as he is popularly called told the Committee. He added: “I generally don’t accept awards, I’d prefer people to emulate what I have done.” About Martin Amidu Martin A. B. K. Amidu was the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice from January 2011 till January 2012 under the late President John Evans Atta-Mills. Amidu, a member of the NDC, served as the Deputy Attorney-General for about the last four years of the Provisional National Defence Council military government. After civilian rule was established in the Fourth Republic in January 1993, he continued to serve in the government of Jerry Rawlings as Deputy Attorney-General. This he did for both terms lasting eight years until January 2001. In the December 2000 presidential elections, he stood as the running mate of John Atta Mills. They both, however, lost to President John Kufuor that year.
