I never interfered with your work – Akufo-Addo tells Martin Amidu

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has denied interfering with the work of the Special Prosecutor Mr. Martin Amidu.

Martin Amidu resigned from his post as Special Prosecutor citing interference by President Akufo-Addo in his work.

However, the President shot down such claims of interference in a statement signed by Eugene Arhin, the director of communication at the presidency.

“Your accusation of interference with your functions simply on account of the meeting the president held with you is perplexing.

“In exercise of what you considered to be your powers under Act 959, you had voluntarily proceeded to produce the Agyapa Report.

“The president had no hand in your work. Without prompting from any quarter within the Executive, you delivered a letter purporting to be a copy of your report to the president.

“The purpose of presenting a copy of the Agyapa report to the president is decipherable from paragraph 32 of your letter to the president in which you indicated that you hoped the report will be ‘used to improve current and future legislative and executive actions to make corruption and corruption-related offences very high-risk enterprise in Ghana.”
