“My only regret in life is trusting Akufo-Addo to con me to become Special Prosecutor – Martin Amidu

Former Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu has expressed regret and sadness for exhibiting naivety in accepting the proposal to be Special Prosecutor in 2018.

According to him, he only trusted the decision by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to appoint him to the position, which he never touts as an achievement.

“The only regret I have in life is to have trusted President Nana Akufo-Addo in such a sheepish manner as to have allowed him to have conned me into agreeing to be his Special Prosecutor in a naïve but sincere belief on my part that he was intent on fighting corruption and was also against using the process of criminal justice administration as an instrument of political discrimination against his political opponents,” Mr Amidu wrote in an article he says is a sequel to one titled ‘A Short Tenure Fighting Corruption and Political Discrimination Is More Honourable’ published on Friday, July 9.

  Prez Akufo Addo over spend his budget by a staggering 1.4 billion dollars- Ablakwa has said.

The article also comes after Attorney General and Minister of Justice Godfred Yeboah Dame is said to have indicated in an interview on Metro TV that but for his spirited defense in court as a Deputy Attorney General, Mr Amidu would not have become the Special Prosecutor “which he so much touts about”.
