Martin Alamisi Amidu was appointed the first Special Prosecutor by President Akufo-Addo
Former President Jerry John Rawlings has congratulated the newly appointed Special Prosecutor, Martin Alamisi Amidu.
“The President couldn’t have made a better choice”.
Mr Amidu, who is a staunch anti-graft campaigner, was on Thursday nominated the first Special Prosecutor by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Flagstaff House.
He is a known member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and he considers himself as a member of the cadres, the core members who believe in the ideals of probity, integrity and accountability.
In his message to congratulate Mr Amidu, whom he holds in high esteem as a result of his principles, Mr Rawlings said the former Attorney General and Justice Minister “has proven to be a fearless anti-corruption crusader whose pursuit of truth and justice has won him national admiration”.
He made one request to Ghanaians for the successful discharge of the duties of Mr Amidu.
“I call on all Ghanaians to offer the appointee the required support and information in pursuit of what will undoubtedly be a challenging role.”
The former president also “urged Ghanaians to pray for God’s guidance and strength for Mr. Amidu as he works to restore the wheels of justice”.
