Former Special Prosecutor Martin A. B. K. Amidu has called on all patriotic Ghanaians to sacrifice in defence of the 1992 Constitution, arguing that both the National Democratic Congress(NDC) and the New Patriotic Party(NPP) use the fight against corruption and greed to deceive Ghanaians into voting for them, only for them to engage in corrupt and greedy practices.
In his latest anti-corruption epistle, Mr Amidu took on President Akufo-Addo and his appointees, especially the Finance Minister for enabling corruption and shielding persons implicated in such acts of corruption.
On the matter of the botched Sputnik V vaccines procurement deal, Mr Amidu asserted that the President and his government have no intention of holding the Health Minister to account for violations of the laws of Ghana in his quest to secure vaccines from an Emirati Sheikh.
He contended that the NDC and the NPP only take turns to engage in corruption and not to fight it as they often promise in their bid to win political power.
“The fight against corruption and greed generally has become an empty and instrumental clarion call for the two major political parties in Ghana for conning We the People to exhibit our genuine dislike and disdain for corruption and corrupt politicians by voting at the next polls to change the incumbent government to enable any of the two rivals in opposition for the time being, to also have a bite at the corruption cherry as Government,” he lamented.
He, therefore, urged Ghanaians to not sit back and allow the situation to persist.
“It happened at the 2000 elections; it happened at the 2008 elections; it happened again at the 2016 elections; and they look forward to conning “We the People” again at the 2024 elections. This is, therefore, the time for all patriotic Ghanaians to wake up and with open eyes, cease to be like Thomas whose eyes could not see at this crucial moment of our dear nation’s history that requires each of us to sacrifice to defend the 1992 Constitution and put Ghana First,” he appealed.
Martin Amidu resigned as Ghana’s first Special Prosecutor citing interference from Presidency in his work.
