Martin Amidu again; stirs another controversy.
The first Public Prosecutor, Martin Alamisi Kaiser Amidu has assumed a cult controversial figure with his public utterances over the years and he is famed for saying things as they are, devoid of scratching the surface as has been the case with many of our public figures.
In one of his many epistles shared within the public domain, Martin Amidu daringly exposed many corrupt practices in the infamous Ayapa Royalties deal, where he referred to many top government officials, including the President of the Republic as complicit in the many inherent malpractices he discovered, by virtue of his position as the Public Prosecutor (PS).
Martin has yet again stirred another controversy in his memoriam tribute to the former Ghanaian President Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings. A year on after his demise, Martin Amidu, who is also a former Attorney General has stated that the former President’s integrity is next only to the first President of Ghana, the Osagyefo, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
Since his death last year, the public debate has been how Ghanaians remember the former Ghanaian Head of State and President, Flt Lt. Jerry John Rawlings. Is it about his stoical and defiant character which saw him breach then established Military order in his abortive May 15th mutiny?
