The government has finally provided a bigger Office for the Special Prosecutor and his team at a favorable location in Accra.

.

The two-storey building which appears ready for renovation, is close to the International Press Center on the Gamel Abdul Nasser Avenue at Ridge.

One of the floors of the building has seven rooms, a conference room, and stores, while the second floor has nine rooms.

A tour of the building by an Accra based radio station, “Citifm”, showed broken windows and parts of the compound overgrown with weeds. There were cobwebs everywhere and the floors were covered in dust.

It was evident that the building needs to be renovated before Mr. Amidu and his team can move.

Engineers from the Architecture And Engineering Services Limited (AESL) who were on site said it will take six months to complete rehabilitation works.

According to sources, funds have already been approved for rehabilitation works on the building.

President Nana Akufo-Addo swore in Martin Amidu as Ghana’s first Special Prosecutor.

The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has complained that since assuming office in February 2018, he is unable to effectively deliver on his mandate because his office is under-resourced.

In his most recent complaint, Mr. Amidu also spoke about the lack of a Legislative Instrument, (LI) to make his work legitimate.

Mr. Amidu’s nomination for the position received overwhelming support from the public with many citing his integrity as the most important attribute.

Mr. Amidu, nicknamed the ‘Citizen Vigilante’ for his one man fight against corruption, was nominated by President Akufo-Addo on January 11, 2018, after an emergency cabinet meeting at the then Flagstaff House, Jubilee House).
