The government of Ghana has assured the immediate past Special Prosecutor of the Republic, Martin Amidu of his safety after he claimed that there have been death threats on his life following his corruption risk assessment of the Agyapa Royalties agreement.
Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the state provided him security in view of the office he was holding, and will continue to provide the security to him.
Mr Amidu cited a number of reasons for his resignation. He said in his letter to the president that “It is essential for me to state for the purpose of the records, and contrary to public perceptions, that my appointment letter was received on 5th February 2020 (almost two (2)-years after my appointment).
“The copy addressees made no efforts to honour any of the conditions of appointment in terms of emoluments and benefits of the appointment ever since my warrant of appointment was issued on 23rd February 2018 to the date of my letter of resignation. The Deputy Special Prosecutor has also not been paid any emoluments since her appointment, and there is the need to redress that situation for her now that I am out of the way.
