Even before the Appointment Committee of Parliament finishes its vetting of Mr Martin Amidu, there are concerns from some bigwigs within the ruling NPP.
According to Kennedy Agyapong, the Member of Parliament for the Assin Central Constituency, the appointment of Mr Amidu is the beginning of the President’s woes.
The firebrand politician who has from day one poo-poohed the appointment of Mr Amidu on Tuesday February 8, 2018, said the posture and demeanour of the nominee raises a lot of eyebrows.
Speaking on Eko Sii Sen on Accra-based Asempa FM, Mr Kennedy Agyapong said the nominee looks bitter in his utterances, a posture he said makes it difficult for him to be entrusted with such an office.
Throwing light on his arrogant nature, the legislator said he was surprised the nominee could not take mere joke by a member of the committee during his vetting
“What kind of bitterness is that? Even some of us who were charged with treason and could have been sentenced to death if we were found guilty, we don’t harbor such bitterness….so he must be called to order.”
He warned that if the NPP is not careful Mr Martin Amidu will hand ammunitions to their political opponents if decides to go on a wild goose chase against appointees in government.
He said such a situation will be politically suicidal as the NDC at their usual best will say there is corruption in the government even though it may be otherwise.
“All he has to do is just to call one appointee or the other for investigations and the NDC will begin trumpeting that there is corruption in this administration, he is going to be the beginning of Akufo-Addo’s troubles…”.
