Martin Amidu Will Resign After Just 6 Months! - NDC Stalwart
Posted on: Thursday, February 15, 2018

Former Vice Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ashanti Region, Alhaji Mohammed Saani, says Mr. Martin Amidu may resign as Special Prosecutor 6 months into office.

According him, the frustration he will encounter as Special Prosecutor will necessitate his forced exit.

Speaking to Okay FM's "Ade Akye Abia" in an interview Thursday morning, he expressed worry over the nominee's arrogant posture at the vetting, saying he envisages him (Amidu) butting heads with others.

“I know Amidu will start displaying his arrogance and if he decides to do things his own way, it will receive stiff opposition. He should be able to control himself especially as he is going to work with other people (from different backgrounds)....he cannot exhibit that attitude he put out at the vetting, otherwise he will start having issues with his team....I can tell you on authority that he may even be forced to resign within 6 months of office,” he predicted.

The NDC capo further stated that he personally considers Martin Amidu as someone who is too temperamental and wonders how the one-time Attorney-General would liaise with others to be that efficient in his new role.

"If you look at his posture , clearly he is a dictator and will claim to know the law more than everybody. If the board insists there will be a problem in the country because he sees himself as the best for the job. In anycase what is so special about Martin Amidu as special prosecutor? There is nothing special about his job. He is an ordinary prosecutor just like other prosecutors at the Attorney-General's office. Take out the special and he remains an ordinary prosecutor like the policeman,” Alhaji Saani snorted.

7-hour long Vetting

Martin Amidu on Tuesday, February 13, faced Parliament’s Appointments Committee in what was possibly the longest ever parliamentary vetting session for a single individual in the 4th Republic.

Though he has received lots of commendation for his style of answering the questions posed to him by the members of vetting committee, some have also criticized him for what they believe and describe as an arrogant posture.

The Special Prosecutor nominee responded to over 180 questions from all members of the committee in the over 7-hour long session.

The National Democratic Congres (NDC) Minority asked the most questions; 75% of all questions asked, with the caucus’ leader, Haruna Iddrisu, being the individual who asked the most number of questions.

Most of the questions focused on past statements and articles Martin Amidu had written.

There is, however, a pending suit at the Supreme Court by NDC member and former Deputy Attorney General Dominic Ayine, challenging Amidu’s nomination.

He argues that Mr. Amidu, 66, has passed the age that requires him to serve in that office.
