The National Communication Director of opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said that President Akufo-Addo will be held responsible if any harm befalls former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu.
According to Lawyer Gyamfi, if President Akufo-Addo and his government do not agree with Mr. Amidu on his report on the controversial Agyapa Royalties deal they should state their differences and stop harassing and threatening the innocent man. The outspoken communication officer said this during a press briefing at Accra.
Martin Amidu in an interview with Citi News said Ghanaians should blame President Akufo-Addo if any harm happens to him.
According to the resigned Special Prosecutor, threats of harm and death towards him have been reported to the National Security Minister.
“I tried to call Kan Dapaah, he didn’t pick it and I got a former national security advisor to contact him and tell him that, and I know the persons involved, I can name them but I reserve it for the meantime. I put my life for the republic of Ghana and the president will be responsible for anything that happens to me.
“The intelligence is there and I called the minister of national security but he didn’t pick and I got a former national security advisor to speak to him and this fact is now known and I say that the president will be responsible for anything that happens to me,” he told Accra-based Citi Fm Thursday.
He added: “I’m a Ghanaian and I don’t fear anything and, as I said, to die in the cause of fighting corruption is what I started with President Jerry Rawlings on 31st December 1982 and I’m not going to leave it because some people think that they can threaten me. I don’t give a damn about that.
“…If they don’t stop, I’ll respond. As to what I’ll do, I reserve that for myself but as I said, whatever happens to me, I lay my life for the republic of Ghana and the president has a constitutional duty to protect me. I don’t need any security in my house or to follow me. And anybody who attempts, he will have himself to blame”.
