A letter signed and dated November, 16th 2020 stated that the President has failed to grant him the independence as the Special Prosecutor in the prevention, investigation, prosecution, and recovery of assets of corruption hence his resignation.
The resignation of Martin Amidu comes after his 13 pages of observations, conclusion, and analysis of the Report On Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions and Other Matters Related was made available to the president as Chairman of the National Security Council but the response he received made it know to him that his office was not working independently.
“…..The events of 12th November 2020 removed the only protection I had from the threats and plans directed at me for undertaking the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions anti-corruption assessment report and dictates that I resign as the Special Prosecutor immediately….” part of his letter read.
