Former Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu is “very old” and “supposedly experienced” yet could only survive eleven months as attorney general, Mr Godfred Dame has observed.
Commenting publicly, for the first time, on Mr Amidu’s reference to him as a “young” and “inexperienced” attorney general in one of his harangues, Mr Dame told Francisca Kakra Forson on Metro TV’s Good Afternoon Ghana programme on Thursday, 24 June 2021, when asked if he felt pressured by such attacks, that: “I don’t know. I think that question, perhaps, should be addressed to Mr Martin Amidu because he was very old and supposedly experienced and yet served as attorney general for eleven months, so, you want to ask him”.
“Maybe, there was pressure on him that is why he served for only eleven months. He did only eleven months. That’s a record”, Mr Dame noted.
Despite Mr Amidu’s attack on him, the 42-year-old attorney general said he had a cordial and professional relationship with Mr Amidu while he served as Special Prosecutor.
“When he was in office as Special Prosecutor, I used to visit him and he knows it and he actually used to say much of the time that I was the only person in this ministry, who used to visit him and that is it”, he said.
Mr Dame said despite Mr Amidus attacks on him, “I have nothing against him”.
