Amidu envious of Mahama; he's full of 'anger and hatred' - Solomon Nkansah

Communications Director of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Solomon Nkansah says former Attorney General and Minister of Justice in the late President John Evans Atta-Mills’ administration; Mr. Martin Amidu is "envious" of President John Dramani Mahama’s achievements.

His comment comes after the anti-corruption campaigner hinted that the Mahama-led National Democratic Congress (NDC) would never compel businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome to refund the GH¢51.2 million wrongfully paid to him by government officials unless they are kicked out from office.

According to him, the Mahama-led government created, looted and shared the GH¢51.2 million loot with the businessman.

He has, therefore, charged Ghanaians to vote out President John Dramani Mahama and his NDC in the December 7 elections, saying that is the only way Ghana can retrieve the GH¢51.2 million from Mr. Woyome.

"This is the only way out for Ghanaians to stand up for their constitutional rights, and to retrieve the unconstitutional monies created, looted and shared by this government with its political party supporters, who are now unconstitutional judgment debtors to the Republic,” Mr. Amidu, also known as Citizen Vigilante said.

Mr. Amidu also noted that - even though he is a senior and founding member of the NDC, he is compelled to put Ghana first and to defend the 1992 Constitution, saying the only way Ghanaians can have the Woyome/Austro-Invest joint loot refunded is to change the government during the presidential election this year.

This led Solomon Nkansah of the NDC to describe Mr. Amidu as an envious citizen full of "anger and hatred" for President Mahama’s achievements in an interview on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.

"This is what is worrying Martin Amidu but we [NDC] won’t waste our time to discuss him," he told host Kwasi Aboagye.
