The Special Prosecutor nominee Martin A.B.K Amidu has paid a glowing tribute to former President Jerry John Rawlings for reducing corruption to the barest minimum during his tenure.

Addressing the Parliament’s Appointment’s Committee Tuesday, Mr. Amidu who has been described as the citizen vigilante said he credits the former military dictator for introducing him to politics.

“Rawlings is the one who brought me into politics and if anyone would know me better, then it must be him…despite what anybody says about him, he reduced corruption to the barest minimum.”

Amidu, a member of the NDC, served as the Deputy Attorney-General for about the last four years of the Provisional National Defence Council military government.
