Ghana’s Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has resigned from his position effective Tuesday, November 17, 2020, UPSANEWSROOM.com has gathered.
In a letter sighted by UPSANEWSROOM.com addressed to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Mr Amidu said he accepted the position because of the assurance that his actions will not be interfered with.
However, UPSANEWSROOM.com has learnt the government has been meddling in the affairs of the Special Prosecutor leading to his decision to resign.
Mr Amidu has noted his decision is to pave way for “your Excellency to take steps to appoint a replacement to that position as required by law.”
Martin Amidu was appointed by the President in January 2018 as the first occupant of the newly created Office of the Special Prosecutor following the recommendation of the Attorney-General.
