Many Ghanaians have expressed shock at the resignation of the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu. Others are disappointed with his decision as they believe it is a big blow to Ghana’s fight against corruption.

However, Veteran Legal Practitioner, John Ndebugri is least surprised.

According to Mr. Ndebugri, his decision now is only a fulfillment of a prediction he made earlier during his vetting into office.

He explained that the conflicting roles of the Special Prosecutor’ office and other operations with his mandate contributed to Mr. Amidu’s frustrations and failure to perform.

On the other hand, Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Obiri Boahen, believes it is normal for public servants to resign when necessary and there is no need to make mountains out of mole hills.

A Member of the Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee of Parliament, Inusah Fuseini, for his part did not mince words saying Mr. Amidu’s resignation is an indictment on President Akufo Addo. He said Mr. Amidu’s allegations of political interference in his work show that the President did not really mean business when he set up the office of the special prosecutor to fight corruption tooth and nail.

Mr. Fuseni however debunked Mr. Amidu’s claims that he and his assistant have not been paid for the past two years.
