A member of the Economic Fighters League, Ernesto Yeboah, has indicated that, the appointment of Martin Amidu, as Special Prosecutor appears to be a trick.
Speaaking on Nyankonton mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he added, the change Ghanaians called for has not been seen after the New Patriotic Party (NPP), took over office. This is because government is still planning to sell the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), government is bent on introducing Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs).
In terms of the policy direction, nothing has changed. What the NDC did and was voted out of office is the same thing the NPP is doing after winning power,’’ he said.
‘’Nothing has changed in terms of policy. The NPP is running a social media government and the major reason NPP was voted for has not been met.’’
In his view, if the police administration, EOCO and other such bodies should do their constitutional duties, the Office of the Special Prosecutor would not be necessary.
‘’We are only hoping the appointment of Martin Amidu, would help reduce corruption in the country,’’ he stated.
He also disputed claims by some individuals that, Amidu was arrogant adding, ‘’if Amidu is arrogant; his arrogance is justified. He demonstrated knowledge, confidence and demonstrated that he is a competent individual. We wish him well and hope his appointment would not be a superfluous one.’’
On his part, Mr. Bismark Tawiah Boateng, the NDC Chairman for Eastern Region, said Martin Amidu was bitter in his responses.
According to him, Amidu should not be over-hyped despite his competence.
He also advised Amidu to desist from embarking on a witch-hunting spree but deliver his duties in an unbiased, professional and diligent manner.
He challenged Martin Amidu to investigate every single corrupt act stating from the era of former President Kufour till date.
He asked the president to swear him in so he would start work as soon as practicable.
