I never asked Martin Amidu to shelve Agyapa report – Nana Addo

1 min read

President Akufo-Addo says claims that he asked the immediate past Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu to shelve the controversial Agyapa Royalties agreement report are untrue.

A statement from the Presidency on Tuesday evening to respond to Martin Amidu’s resignation letter said the former prosecutor was at no point in his meeting with the president asked to halt his inquiries into the deal to enable the President to “handle the matter” as alleged.

“At no point did the President ask you to shelve the report, so he could “handle the matter”. It is difficult to see in what way and in what context the President would seek to “handle the matter” when the matter was already public knowledge and had led to the Ministry of Finance suspending action on the Agyapa transaction in anticipation of your report”, the President said.

 

More soon.
