Playback: PM Express discusses Martin Amidu’s resignation as Special Prosecutor
News of Mr Martin Amidu’s resignation as Ghana’s first Special Prosecutor has generated mixed reactions amongst the general public, with divided opinions about the future of the country’s fight against corruption.
The former Attorney General in a letter to President Nana Akufo-Addo Monday stated that his decision to resign was based on his inability to “exercise any independence as the Special Prosecutor”, adding that his position as the Special Prosecutor has consequently become untenable.
Tonight on PM Express, Evans Mensah will probe further into Mr Amidu’s decision and its impact on Ghana’s fight against corruption going forward.
He hosts a Ranking member of the Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee of Parliament, Inusah Abdulai Fuseini, Lawyer and Former MP for Zebilla Constituency, John Akparibo Ndebugri, Co-Chair of the Citizens Movement Against Corruption, Edem Senanu and Chairperson of the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee of Parliament, Ben Abdallah Banda.
The programme promises to be enlightening and informative. It will also be livestreamed on all of JoyNews’ social media handles.
