- He also made it known that Mr. Amidu on the day of his vetting, got angry unnecessarily. He attributed it to Mr. Amidu breaking ranks with some of his party members, and having to meet some of them who opposed his nomination.
Legal practitioner, and host of Joy FM's political talkshow, Newsfile, Samson Lardy Anyenini, has stated that the nominee for the position of Special Prosecutor, Mr. Martin Amidu, knows his stuff when it comes to the law.
The lawyer, in an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chat programme, revealed that Mr. Martin Amidu's knowledge of the law could sink a ship. He said that for the position of the Special Prosecutor, one needs to possess a lot of experience, and Mr. Martin Amidu has it in abundance.
He also made it known that Mr. Amidu on the day of his vetting, got angry unnecessarily. He attributed it to Mr. Amidu breaking ranks with some of his party members, and having to meet some of them who opposed his nomination.
He further posited that Mr. Amidu is more than qualified for the position, because he has demonstrated that he cannot be compromised. According to him, Mr. Amidu turning down the opportunity to become a Supreme Court Judge, which is the dream of most lawyers, is one such attribute.
When asked who impressed him most on the Appointments Committee, he mentioned the Minority Chief Whip, Hon. Muntaka Mubarak. He stated that the Chief Whip started with an unsuspecting demeanour, but posed questions that took Mr. Amidu by surprise.
Commenting on the performance of the President, he stated that it was too early to judge.
He mentioned that some policies of the government appear to be right. He listed Ghana Post GPS, paperless ports, and some changes at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) as examples.
However, he had some misgivings about the government. He said that the President's appointment of 110 ministers is his biggest disappointment.
