What else does Amidu want? - Anim Piesie asks

Bernard Anim Piesie, a member of the communication team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has questioned the strength of Martin Amidu to perform as the Special Prosecutor.

According to him the Special Prosecutor has all the financial and law backing that propel him to perform as scuh there is no cause for him.

Martin Amidu, Special Prosecutor in a recent write-up has accused heads of various institutions of hindering his efforts to fight corruption in the country.

According to him, these heads are simply refusing to comply with laid down regulations of good governance and the protection of the national purse.

“What does the Government and the public expect the Office of the Special Prosecutor to do when heads of institutions refuse or fail to support the fight against corruption and corruption-related offences by not vigorously applying the regulations intended to aid the fight against corruption and other crimes? Corruption and corruption-related offences are offences committed primarily by public officers and one does not ordinarily expect heads of public institutions to protect public officers suspected of committing those offences even when they have been charged and put before the Court," a portion of his article read.

Inusah Fuseini, Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale Central constituency, thinks he talks too much.

“The man is not doing his job. All he knows is to write letters and talk,” he indicated during an interview on Neat FM.

Adding to this during a panel discussion on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', he said everything Martin Amidu needs to work with has been provided and so he does not understand why he is still complaining.

"It seems he doesn't have the strength to work again . . . what else is hindering him. Since he was appointed he has been complaining about one thing or the other. What else does he want?" Anim Piesie questioned.
