Former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has described President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo as the “mother corrupt serpent under the innocent-looking flower”.
The description is contained in Mr. Martin Amidu’s latest epistle in response to the president denying that he ever interfered during his tenure as Special Prosecutor.
Mr. Amidu insists that the President wanted him to shelve his risk assessment on the Agyapa Royalties deal.
Excerpts of his epistle read: “I resigned my position as the Special Prosecutor because of the traumatic experience I suffered from the reaction of the President who breached his Presidential oath by unlawfully obstructing me from taking any further steps on the Agyapa Royalties Transactions from 20th October 2020 to 1 November 2020.
“When I met the President on 23rd October 2020, I received the shock of my life when he demanded that I took no further action on the Agyapa royalties transaction anti-corruption assessment report for another week. That was when it was divinely revealed to me that the President whom I trusted so much for integrity only looked like the innocent flower of anti-corruption but he was really the mother corruption serpent under the innocent-looking flower.
“The Holy Spirt embolden me to tell the President immediately in the face that I will not be the special prosecutor and that I was giving him notice of that fact.”
His epistle continues that the Agyapa Royalties Transaction is suspected to have been “intended to rob the chiefs and people of Ghana of their patrimony as the beneficiaries of the gold extractive resources of our dear country in perpetuity for the benefit of a very few members of the president’s government as distinct from the New Patriotic Party.”
