I’m disappointed in Amidu’s resignation, he has failed – Kweku Baako
Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr has expressed his disappointment with the resignation of former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu.
Martin Amidu on Monday, November 16, 2020, served notice of his resignation from office with immediate effect.
In a letter addressed to President Nana Akufo-Addo, Mr. Amidu suggested that President Akufo-Addo had not been able to ensure his independence and freedom of action.
Speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo Morning Show, Kweku Baako indicated Martin Amidu could have proceeded with his mandate by calling the bluff of the Executive and asserting his independence in the face of interference.
He believes Martin Amidu’s decision to resign is tantamount to surrendering the independence of the office of the Special Prosecutor to the Executive.
“With all sincerity, I’m not happy with his (Amidu) resignation. I’m disappointed. He shouldn’t have resigned. This the time he should have stood on his grounds in that office and use the powers the Executive orders have given to him. If I was him, I would have stick to the office and be determined because you cannot sack me. My source of disappointment seriously has to do with him choosing to leave that office at the time based on the reasons he has given because I think, it is those reasons that should have strengthened him to do more” he said.
