Member of Parliament (MP) for Bawku Central Constituency Hon Mahama Ayariga has stated that his uncle, former Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu craved to work in the public space than in his office.
According to the lawmaker, Mr. Amidu’s approach to the job as SP could be one of the major reasons he received attacks that made him resigned from his position a few days ago.
Speaking on an Accra-based radio station he said “the way he approached the job, it is a job that requires you to approach it in a way that is too public but most of the time he was out there in the public when had not established his facts well. Even if you establish your facts as a prosecutor and investigator, the public space is not where you run to first and I thought that he was out there too much. Sometimes it did not serve him well in terms of the work…for me, there was a problem with his whole approach to doing the work. I think that would have led to the attacks he cites as the basis for his decision to leave office”.
According to the lawmaker, his colleagues somewhere are silent and working until results are attained on matters being investigated but his ‘old man’ prefers to be in the media on happenings all the time.
“I have seen Special Prosecutors somewhere, they hardly talk and you don’t know until the end what happens but in the case of my old man, every day he is in the news….every day he was always in the news”, he disclosed.
