Dear GhanaWeb reader,
Only two weeks to the election, the country continues to experience major turn of events week-by-week from both the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC). Our newsletters can testify.
This past week was again about corruption but this time around, the death of accountability after the resignation of Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu who accuses the government of complicity in the controversial Agyapa Mineral Royalties Agreement which has not even seen the light of day.
“The one condition upon which I accepted to be nominated as the Special Prosecutor when you invited me to your Office on 10th January 2018 was your firm promise to me that you will respect and ensure same by your Government for my independence and freedom of action as the Special Prosecutor,” Amidu said in his resignation letter to the president.
“…The events of 12/11/20 removed the only protection I had from the threats & plans directed at me for undertaking the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions anti-corruption assessment report & dictates that I resign as the Special Prosecutor immediately,” he chided the president for “interfering” in his investigation.
The presidency denied all the accusation and claims of Martin Amidu but the truth remains, Amidu’s resignation is the death of accountability; until another Amidu is found.
