The Office of the Special Prosecutor headed by Lawyer Martin Amidu has dared Former President Mahama to challenge him on whether is not the Governemnt Official One as reported in the infamous Airbus Bribery scandal or not.
This comes as a reply from Martin Amidu to Mahama over the latter’s comment some days ago describing the former as a coward.
In a strongly-worded statement, Martin Amidu said he has everything to prove that Mahama was neck-deep in the scandal but has decided to err on the side of caution.
“Your Excellency, the wise and the brave former President John Dramani Mahama, man-up, wise-up, and be brave enough to come with two lawyers of your own choice to be cautioned and interrogated by this Office to demonstrate your valour and wisdom as not being elected Government Official 1 and also as not being the first guarantor to Samuel Adam Mahama’s passport application.”
“The long public service of the Special Prosecutor spanning various aspects of security and intelligence from the period February 1982 to 7″ January 2001, and July 2009 to January 2012 makes him more experienced in determining when it is not conducive to the national security interest to foolhardily take certain law and order actions.”
“The Special Prosecutor owes that exercise of discretion to his vast experience over the years, his responsibility to maintain national stability, and his conscience as a patriotic anti-corruption crusading Ghanaian.”
“There is no question of stupidity or cowardice about it. Any person aspiring to be President of Ghana for a second term who does not know that a cardinal principle in security and intelligence is that “caution is the better part of valour” was not and is not worth the vote,” Amidu said in a statement issued on Monday, November 9, 2020.”
