Watch: Mahama was right about Martin Amidu, he’s running away from his job – Dada Joe

Ghanaian political blogger, Joseph Naah-Yerreh, better known as Dada Joe has said that the resignation of the special prosecutor, Mr. Martin ABK Amidu esq. only gives credence to comments by ex-president John Mahama that Mr. Amidu lacks the bravery to carry out the work of the special prosecutor.

Martin Amidu in his resignation letter cited that his decision was fundamentally informed by the lack of independence of the office of the special prosecutor to carry out its mandate, especially following the release of the Agyapa Royalties report.

Reacting to news of Mr. Martin Amidu’s resignation in a video on his Youtube channel, Dada Joe said the reasons Martin Amidu cited for his resignation are untenable as every law enforcement agency, especially one fighting against corruption in high places is expected to face some degree of push back.

He added that the only independence Mr. Amidu needed was the law which gave him protection from removal, meaning he was exempt from politically motivated sackings and therefore only needed bravery to fight the fight of the people and protect the public purse.

“You don’t go after criminals and expect that they will do nothing like sitting ducks for you to grab. of course they will push back” he said. watch the full video below.
