Mr. Amidu was appointed to lead the fight against corruption for seven years, but nearly three years after he had been sworn into office, the Special Prosecutor (SP) has resigned. He cited what he described as “political interference in the independence of his office” as the main reason for his decision to resign.

The former Special Prosecutor in his resignation letter to the President made some allegations against him and his government. President Akufo-Addo however came to debunked Amidu’s claim. He said Martin Amidu’s allegations against him that he was a judge In his own cause, leading to his resignation “are most regrettable ”.

A few days after his resignation, Mr. Amidu disclosed that he has been receiving threats on his life. According to him, he has been the target of threats of harm ever since he left office in connection with his corruption and anti-corruption risk assessment report on the controversial Agyapa Royalties deal.

“Please, I have said since I left the office that I was not going to do any fresh interviews about my resignation, I was not going to talk to the press. I am being pushed by so-called responses to me, which contain blatant falsehoods, to speak but I do not want anybody to blame me when I speak out and it becomes unpalatable”, Mr. Amidu warned in an audio note.

“So, either the attacks stop or I’ll defend my integrity, even if that means my death. It is something I won by dint of hard work from the PNDC to date and I’m not going to allow anybody, not even the president, to pull that integrity into the mud”, the former Attorney General said.

Well, in a new twenty-seven-page reply, Mr. Amidu has described the presidential aspirant of the New Patriotic Party as the mother serpent of corruption.

“I became more convinced beyond any further reasonable doubt after my second meeting with the President in his office in the evening of Sunday 1st November 2020 when the President attempted to persuade me to shelve the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transaction anti-corruption assessment report to allow him to deal with the matter through a statement to the public, that God (represented by the Holy Trinity in my Catholic faith) was in his divine way revealing to me the first time that the President of Ghana only looked like the innocent flower of the fight at corruption but was indeed the mother serpent of corruption under the innocent-looking flower of anti-corruption. And may God, encompassed in the Blessed Holy Trinity, be eternally praised for that divine revelation!”
