Martin Amidu on November 16, 2020, made Ghanaians privy to his willingness to resign from his post as Special Prosecutor.
The truth is, Martin Amidu’s position as Special Prosecutor was welcomed by the majority of Ghanaians but his output on the job has been very disappointing – he couldn’t jail anybody as Ghanaians envisaged.
But Dr Sekou Nkrumah, Kwame Nkrumah’s son, reacting to Martin Amidu’s resignation posited that the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) is highly charged and needs a person who is calm, level-headed and less controversial to be in the helm of affairs.
“I honestly think Nana Addo made a mistake with the appointment of Amidu to the office of [the] special prosecutor,” Sekou Nkrumah wrote on his FB timeline on Thursday. “I have been following Martin Amidu in the media since his clash with President Mills! He comes through as a very intelligent, well-educated but eccentric character!
He continued: “In my opinion, the OSP is highly charged and therefore needs a calm, level-headed, and less controversial person. Clearly, Martin Amidu did not fit that profile, so why did Nana Addo make that glaringly obvious mistake?”
Dr. Sekou Nkrumah hinted that he was part of those who were baffled by the nomination of Martin Amidu as the late Professor Mills’s running mate.
