The Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has stated that Martin Amidu has serious medical complications for which he should not have been appointed as Special Prosecutor.
He made the massive allegation about Mr. Amidu on Wednesday while speaking on the ‘Seat Show’, a program on Net 2 TV.
According to Mr. Agyapong, during the vetting process of Martin Amidu, Mahama Ayariga intended to raise the case of Amidu’s medical records but ex-President, John Dramani Mahama, interfered.
“Martin Amidu thinks he’s a ‘tin god’. He should bring his medical records from Germany, I dare him. Bring your medical records from Germany to determine if you’re normal,” Kennedy Agyapong charged in a flared up tone.
He added: “Ayariga was going to take him on to produce his medical records and explain why he went to Germany [but] Mahama told him to stop. ‘Don’t raise this question at the Appointment Committee’. Mahama advised them not to raise that issue [about] the medical records and it was never brought up because they knew that one [day] this will happen.”
Martin Amidu on Monday, November 16, 2020, withdrew from his position and resigned as the Special Prosecutor.
In his resignation letter to the President, Martin Amidu cited: “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.” A promise to which his resignation confirms that it wasn’t fulfilled.
