Former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, continues to take the Akufo-Addo administration to the cleaners, describing it in his latest epistle as “irredeemably corrupt.”
He further accused the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, of blackmailing some National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament (MPs) with the double salary scandal.

This, according to him, was the reason why the opposition MPs passed all the president’s ministerial nominees, despite expressing grave dissatisfaction with some of them.
Amidu further alleged that one of the former Ministers of Finance of the NDC was in charge of the negotiations on behalf of the Akufo-Addo administration “which resulted in the NDC party outside Parliament instructing the NDC in Parliament to approve all the Ministerial nominees of the Government including the Minister who was yet to supply further and better particulars to the appointments committee for consideration before his approval or disapproval by the Committee and by Parliament.”
The former special prosecutor in an earlier report launched a scathing attack on Kissi Agyebeng, the nominee for the office of the Special Prosecutor.
He resigned as the country’s first Special Prosecutor in the runup to the crucial 2020 general elections over “political interference”.

This was after his explosive corruption and anti-corruption risk assessment report on the controversial Agyapa Royalties deal in which he said there was reasonable suspicion of “bid-rigging and corruption” as well as the likelihood for “illicit financial flows and money laundering” in selecting the deal’s transaction advisor(s).
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo accepted the nomination of Kissi Agyebeng as Ghana’s next Special Prosecutor, YEN.com.gh reported earlier.
