Presidency never read the Agyapa Royalties report – Amidu

Former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has expressed worry over the failure of the President of Ghana and his Secretary to read the report on the Agyapa Royalties deal but rush to issue a response.

Martin Amidu resigned from his post as Special Prosecutor; a position he has held for two years citing interference from the President as a reason for his resignation.

Days after his resignation, a statement was issued from the Presidency responding to the issues raised in his [Martin Amidu] resignation letter.

But responding to the Presidency’s response which was written by Nana Asante Bediatuo who is the President’s Secretary, Martin Amidu noted that the response is an indication that the President and his Secretary did not read the report he submitted.

“If the President and you had found the time to read the full Agyapa Royalties Transaction anti-corruption assessment report you would not have relied on the conclusions and observations like lazy lawyers relying on facts and holding in a published law report in making false and frivolous character assassination attacks on my integrity for cheap political point scoring”.

He added: “I shudder to think of the impression being created to the domestic and international community that this dear country of ours, Ghana, is now being run on autopilot”.

The former Special Prosecutor noted that in the Presidency’s response to his resignation, it was stated that he had a meeting with the President; something he has denied and has called on the Secretary of the President to pay attention to details.

“I am sorry to say without any equivocation that I never met the President on 21st October 2020 in his Office because the President was away in the Volta Region between 20th October 2020 and 22nd October 2020.

“As the Secretary to the President even if suffered from a lapse of memory, you as his Secretary ought to have realized that he could not have held any such a meeting with me when I never travelled to the Volta Region during that period.”
