The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has been called upon to call the Special Prosecutor nominee, Martin Amidu, to order for exhibiting signs of arrogance.
The reason, according to Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Ken Agyapong, is that Martin Amidu has started showing signs that he ‘is very arrogant and a man full of bitterness’.
“Martin Amidu is very arrogant, very very arrogant, look at the kind of arrogance he is demonstrating at the vetting committee? He just can’t take a simple joke…,” he said on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen on Tuesday.
Martin Amidu is currently before Parliament’s Appointment Committee.
But Kennedy Agyapong believes that the Special Prosecutor nominee has so far not shown signs that he is prepared to work with a “free mind.”
He thus called on the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, to call the nominee to order as his arrogance is choking lots of people.
“What kind of bitterness is that? Even some of us who were charged with treason and could have been sentenced to death if we were found guilty, we don’t harbor such bitterness….so he must be called to order,” he said.
According to Kennedy Agyapong, Martin Amidu will give the NPP Government lots of problems if the powers that be, fail to ‘tame’ him.
“All he has to do is just to call one appointee or the other for investigations and the NDC will begin trumpeting that there is corruption in this administration, he is going to be the beginning of Akufo-Addo’s troubles…,” Ken said further.
Asked if he was criticizing Martin Amidu because he feared he will be investigated by the Special Prosecutor, Ken said he did not fear him because “I have not engaged in any corrupt act.”
“I am only telling the truth, the man is too bitter and that is not the way to go,” he said.
