Former Special Prosecutor Martin Alamisi Burnes Kaiser Amidu has expressed regret and sadness for exhibiting naivety in accepting the proposal to be Special Prosecutor in 2018.
According to him, he only trusted the “sheepish” decision by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to appoint him to the position, which he never touts as an achievement.
“The only regret I have in life is to have trusted President Nana Akufo-Addo in such a sheepish manner as to have allowed him to have conned me into agreeing to be his Special Prosecutor in a naïve but sincere belief on my part that he was intent on fighting corruption and was also against using the process of criminal justice administration as an instrument of political discrimination against his political opponents,” Mr Amidu wrote in an article he says is a sequel to one titled ‘A Short Tenure Fighting Corruption and Political Discrimination Is More Honourable’ published on Friday, July 9.
As a reminder, President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, somewhere in the month of January 2018 appointed Martin Alamisi Burnes Kaiser Amidu as the Special Prosecutor.
However, things couldn’t go as planned, therefore, Martin Amidu resigned from his post barely 2 years after his appointment.
