“Your Excellency the wise and the brave former President” – Amidu addresses Mahama on ‘stupidity’ jibe
The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has challenged former President John Mahama to voluntarily submit himself to the Office of the Special Prosecutor to be interrogated on the Airbus bribery scandal.
It will be recalled that Amidu had in an earlier statement indicated that “the only reason the former President (Mahama) has not been invited for interrogation (in spite of all threats from some of his followers and lawyers) is the fact that he got himself an insurance as the Presidential candidate of the other largest political party in Ghana.”
He also argued that “prudence dictated that the interrogation be held in abeyance during this election season.”
However, Mr Mahama took issue with the Special Prosecutor’s statement because it was made in the corruption risk assessment on the Agyapa Minerals Royalties deal. The NDC Presidential candidate also described the Special Prosecutor (SP) as a “coward” for mentioning him in the corruption risk assessment report.
