Is the CID deaf and dumb – Amidu asks NPP’s Buaben Asamoa

Member of Parliament (MP) for Adentan Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Yaw Buaben Asamoa has been quizzed why he has taken over as spokesperson for the Criminal Investigation Department as though it is a deaf and dumb department.

Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu wonders if the department cannot speak for itself for which reason the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Communication Director has taken up that responsibility.

“Hon. Yaw Buaben Asamoa latched on my explanation and information to the public through the interview to run to the defence of the Criminal Investigation Department as though it is a Department of deaf and dumb”, he said in a statement sighted by MyNewsGh.com on Tuesday July 23, 2019.

Mr. Amidu is accusing the NPP executive of interfering in his work and seeking to direct him on what to do revealing that he is not an ignoramus to be remote-controlled.

“Hon. Yaw Buaben Asamoa did this by pretending to be directing me as an ignoramus on how to perform the duties of my Office. Hon Yaw Buaben Asamoa as the Communication Direct of his party on a previous occasion had the audacity to use the media to instruct me to prosecute “the low hanging fruits, whatever that means." He averred.

"Hon. Yaw Buaben Asamoa as the Communications Director of his party thinks that Ghanaians are so foolish that they may not suspect that his verbal attack on my Office in the media on Monday may be construed by rational citizens as a subtle way of defending the CID and a party colleague who was the subject of the alleged exoneration. He appears to pretend not to understand that there are several subtle ways of interfering with and indirectly stopping a fair investigation."
