Multiple award-winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has revealed that he will be working with Ghana's first special prosecutor, Martin A.B.K Amidu to fight corruption in the country.

In the over 20 minutes interview aired on Aljazeera, Anas Aremeyaw Anas expressed high optimism about the appointment and eventual confirmation of “Uncle Martin”-as he affectionately called Mr Amidu throughout the interview- as Special Prosecutor.

Anas also made reference to the comments by Mr. Martin Amidu during his vetting about working together with him (Anas) in the fight against the scourge of corruption in Ghana.

Responding to a question about the formerly strained relationship he had with his ‘Uncle’ Martin Amidu, Anas pointed to Mr Martin Amidu’s comments about him during his vetting, to show they have moved on, affirming that the fight against corruption is an important uniting factor for which reason corrupt officials should begin to fear for what is coming their way.

Anas Aremeyaw Anas revealed that they have sat down to look at “their differences” and “their books”, with the conclusion being one- trouble for corrupt people in Ghana.

“I mean we have spoken, We have looked at our differences, we have looked at our books and I can only assure the skeptics- those corrupt people in Ghana- that if it is about the two of us, we will definitely get together to ensure that the bad guys go to jail”, the ace investigative journalist said.

“When he [Martin Amidu] was being vetted you would hear what he said about me. The good thing about the two of us is that we all fight against corruption. We basically do the same thing. And we have sat down and looked at our books and I should warn people in Ghana, the corrupt officials…”, he added.
