Ghana’s president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at a town hall meeting with Ghanaian residents in the United States, Washington DC has assured them that Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu who has not kicked a single ass ever since he was appointed will start kicking some thick asses very soon.
The president in his address said;
“The office has been established by law and contrary to a lot of things the efforts are being made to make sure that the office is functional. I think very soon, all of you will see that indeed, the office is functional”.
Mr Martin Amidu recently expressed worry over how Nana Addo’s appointees have frustrated his work making it very difficult for him to kick asses.
Mr Martin Amidu at the National Audit Forum organised by the Ghana Audit Service expressed;
“You ask for information you can’t get it, you ask for a docket, the docket cannot be produced. You ask a minister for a record, the record cannot be produced. How do you fight corruption when those appointed by the president who has a vision are not coordinating with the office of the special prosecutor to achieve his mandate? That is the challenge we have to face”.
Martin Amidu the ass-kicker continued that;
“I am saying this for the public to understand that we have set up an office. We have to organise that office, have the requisite personnel. It does not take one day. The law says 90 days after the assumption of office of the Special Prosecutor, pursuant legislation must be enacted, but as I speak today, I have no legislation so I use my common sense.”
