The war of text amongst Particular Prosecutor, Martin Amidu and the Basic Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nektia is considerably from in excess of as the former has descended heavily on the NDC govt describing him as an irredeemable liar.
He accuses Typical Mosquito of hallucinating and peddling falsehood when he [Asiedu Nketia] claimed he suggested him [Martin Amidu] versus accepting the appointment of Specific prosecutor when it was made available.

Typical Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has disclosed that the election procedures for the ongoing primaries at the Asawasi constituency and other spots have been suspended.
He claims until finally a committee set up to address a variety of petitions introduced to them are settled and solutions most popular for people troubled constituencies, their elections can’t be held.
The Basic Secretary who has been traveling to some constituencies for their vetting and primaries procedures admitted that the work out has so far been successful in the various constituencies the place he has visited.
Nevertheless, Asawase, for occasion, has been suspended pending further more perseverance by the committee wanting into the subject.
Talking on Ok FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ programme, he spelled out that the party will ensure that all problems pertaining to the primaries are settled amicably to make certain sleek elections across the country.
Stress and tensions heightened immediately after an aspirant, Masawudu Mubarick, was prevented from finding forms to contest in the ongoing primaries.
His upset supporters aver that they will resist tries by the executives to disqualify Mr Masawudu from contesting the Asawase MP in the future parliamentary primaries.
I go through in the Ghana Web a publication on 17th July 2019 attributed to Mr. Asiedu Nketia, in which he was alleged to have said that he “personally warned” me, Martin Amidu, “against taking up the career of Unique Prosecutor for the reason that the legislation that set up the business does not give him the necessary powers to get the job done correctly.”
As a college student of and a experienced conflict resolution practitioner, I made the decision to disregard the allegations attributed to his fulminations as pretend news for the reason that what was allegedly attributed to him by no means took area among us or the social gathering ahead of my nomination, approval and appointment by the President as the Special Prosecutor.
But when I read through the printed copy of the similar publication of 17th July 2019 from Ghana Net at dwelling times afterwards in depth, I recognized that the resource of the tale was abcnewsgh.com, and lo and behold, Mr. Nketia was quoted as stating that:
‘“We instructed him, we warned him. I informed him that Martin you are a brother and a comrade, the rules that set up this business office are unable to make you do the job properly. They are just deceiving you. It will all amount to very little they just want to demolish your title. We said it he did not listen” Asiedu Nketia explained in an interview monitored by ABC News.’
I had to discover the forum for the job interview which I ultimately found on peacefmonline of 17th July 2019 an additional variation of the story which also contained the audio recording of the job interview on Ok FM in Akan. Neat FM also carried the very same job interview in Akan.
I could not believe my ears that a Common Secretary of a political party who below the 1992 Constitution is a community officer would hallucinate and lie via his tooth to the general public he serves, just to convey my title and status into disrepute in advance of appropriate contemplating customers of the culture.
I hardly ever consulted any human being or political social gathering right before conference the President on 10th January 2018 and accepting my nomination to be place forward for approval as Specific Prosecutor.
When I was invited to see the President, I did not know why he had sent for me until eventually I answered his simply call and he declared his intentions. I inevitably approved his proposal on the agreed terms that I would have a no cost hand to run without the need of any political interference.
I now have no alternative than to be convinced that Mr. Nketia may well have been hallucinating when he granted his interview that was subsequently released on the net. Mr. Nketia, if he was not hallucinating, realized that he was intentionally production pretend news and lying through his teeth to merely fulfill his political constituency.
How could he advise and warn me a lawyer of more than 38 many years standing with vast community office environment working experience at the time, of the efficacy of the regulation when I had now acknowledged the provide.
But widespread feeling will prompt any acceptable man or woman who witnessed the unfolding political situations in this place just before and immediately just after the yr 2016 to revisit them to refresh his or her memory.
It will then be recollected as no solution, when 1 does this as a reasonable person, that there was no way Mr. Asiedu Nketia or the NDC could have spoken to me or warned me towards accepting the supply to be Unique Prosecutor from the President mainly because I was not on this kind of talking terms with him or them all through that interval. Just stop by my web-site and build the details for yourself: martinamidu.com.
Some associates of the party’s Useful Government Committee at the time tried by means of surrogates to suspend and dismiss me from the NDC by declaring to deliver disciplinary motion from me for alleged misconduct.
I raised preliminary objections to the costs in a letter tackled to the Standard Secretary by EMS when I go through them in the media on the grounds that I had not been a compensated up member of the NDC because I remaining business in January 2012 and could not per their Constitution be a member subject matter to self-control by them.
Mr. Nketia in no way replied to my objections and they could not locate me to serve their so-called disciplinary rates. I insisted that whether or not they preferred it or not I was a foundation member of the original NDC which the new NDC of 2016 couldn’t acquire from me.
Anyone who would like further evidence and evidence that Mr. Asiedu Nketia could possibly have hallucinated or might be an irredeemable liar should really Google or go to the internet sites indicated in some of the subsequent on what he and the NDC claimed on or all around 6th February 2018 about my nomination that proves his hallucination and/or lies and the fake information:
(1) Do not Use Particular Prosecutor To Witch-Hunt Us-NDC To Amidu – ghheadlines.com -Greatest-FM may perhaps have also carried a voice job interview
(3) Amidu is a hypocrite for accepting Particular Prosecutor task – Asiedu Nketia
(4) Tainted Amidu is a good lawyer but campaigned for NPP – Ayine (Myjoyonline.com) and
(5) Akuffo-Addo’s Unique Prosecutor will witch-hunt NDC Members – Ayine.
Prevalent feeling will explain to any sensible particular person that there is no way Asiedu Nketia or the NDC could have spoken to me or warned me mainly because I was not on these talking phrases with him or them.
Even so, I was stunned that soon after my nomination and right before, all through, and just after my acceptance and appointment some of the executive users boldly sent me textual content messages of congratulations and help on the tranquil.
I am not shocked that the political elite on each sides of the political divide want I resigned to allow them possibly to spend their looted general public purse in peace or be capable to loot their share now that they have climbed on the again of the President to electricity.
Is it any surprise that Ghana World wide web of 20th July 2019 republished a faux news tale by a so-referred to as ghanacrusader.com stating that I have engaged in a meeting or collection of meetings with some Member of their Council of Elders in which I am soon to resign to rejoin the NDC?
“Martin Amidu on his way out, established to rejoin NDC”, was the banner headline of the Ghana Crusader. There is a concerted bi-partisan energy of the political elite who disagree with the President’s anti-corruption agenda to exert force on me to resign so they can be free of charge to preserve their loot or loot the public purse which I have been appointed to protect by retrieving, stopping, investigaing and prosecuting where by essential.
Individuals who know my track document in community office environment over the decades know that no Member of the Council of their Elders would dare converse to me on resigning my general public business as the Special Prosecutor. Any person who approaches me to persuade me to resign my office environment will be considered to be obstructing me in the overall performance of my anti-corruption responsibilities as the Specific Prosecutor.
This time the Workplace of the Distinctive Prosecutor will cope with the make any difference by itself and not farmed it out to yet another regulation enforcement office environment so that the circumstance will also lie fallow once more like the former broadly revealed criticism and complaint assertion of obstruction I lodged for investigation.
The concerted attempts by the political elite to distract me from the responsibilities of my office environment with calls for me to resign will not go me to abandon the citizens who created the establishment of the Place of work possible. I also know that there are loads of people in equally the NDC and the NPP who would be too delighted to hear that I have resigned or been taken off from workplace.
I know further more that when the President brought up my nomination he confronted severe opposition from his possess, just like the Asiedu Nketias of the other side also did, but he insisted he preferred an neutral person like me for the job. View the Tv set information on the several stations on 4th June 2019 and you will see the selection of NPP MPs who opposed any prosecution of any Member of Parliament for corruption. I have composed presently on the bi-partisan place of the Leadership of an NPP Vast majority Parliament beneath a Pastor Speaker.
My duty is not mainly to prosecute corruption but previously mentioned all to prevent it. I am contented that my collaboration with the Auditor-Basic and the Minister of Finance have and are yielding preventive steps and effects even right before the Workplace absolutely takes off. As for all those who have currently looted or are now looting or intend to do so, I will shortly capture up with them.
That is why the Business office of the Specific Prosecutor issued the final warning pointing to its powers of enforcement but regrettably inexperienced legal professionals and others who did not make a comprehensive examining of the assertion refused or failed to grasp its genuine import ensuing in their fruitless labour in hoping to remind me with my huge practical experience and years as a lawyer of the pretty powers I had already obviously referred to in the assertion.
Every single honest anti-corruption crusader acting rationally can assess independently the evidence and the forces that are from the Particular Prosecutor’s appointment and ongoing continue to be in office because they pay only lip support to the battle against the pervasive canker of corruption in Ghana.
Anti-corruption crusaders can simply see the political elite who put Ghana Past in its place of Ghana To start with as they swore to do below the Constitution. The know-how that I cannot be compromised in this anti-corruption war is what instills anxiety in the opponents of exposing corruption, the men and women who want to see my back again by resignation or removing.
I will keep on to defend the Structure and will not continue to keep tranquil. I will create about those safeguarding the practitioners of corruption so that the general public will be sufficiently knowledgeable to help the Office when it catches up with them.
I will carry on to execute the duties of my Business in accordance with the Constitution and the regulation, with out worry or favour affection or ill will, no matter who is suspected of committing the criminal offense of corruption underneath my watch.
No one is likely to press or make me leap from the troubles of fighting public business office corruption unless the Supreme Courtroom declares the provisions of the Act underneath which I was appointed unconstitutional, I am impeached or I grow to be confident beyond a sensible question that the mutual promises and undertakings built with me at my nomination to combat the canker of corruption were being not supposed to be actualized in follow.

Nonetheless, the group urged Previous President Mahama to fish out for a credible, tenacious running mate as a substitute of imagining to find Asiedu Nketia.

He is also pointed out to be affable and also has the capacity to mobilize grassroots in the rural communities to vote for President Mahama in the coming 2020 normal elections.

“I’ve also noticed the speculation viral on social media but I’ve not been spoken to by the Flagbearer. We do not campaign for the operating mate posture, our party has a construction that is followed in picking out a operating mate who will be pretty suited for the situation. I know I should have that placement if you inquire me, but it doesn’t lie in my mouth to say it. Let us leave that to the appointing authority” he said.
