Martin Amidu who just bowed out from his role as Special Prosecutor has warned his detractors from attacking him or to face the risk of him coming out to expose secrets that could unsettle government.


In an interview with journalist Umaru Sanda on Thursday, November 19, Mr Martin Alamisi Amidu said he had resolved not to air his grievances through the press.

He was quoted saying, “Please, I have said since I left the office that I was not going to give any press interview about my resignation.”

He added, “I was not going to talk to the press. I am being pushed by so-called responses to me, which contains reference…to speak. But I do not want anybody to blame me when I speak out and it becomes unpalatable.”

Being the first to fill the position of Special Prosecuto, Martin Amidu bowed out from his office citing a number of reasons.

In his resignation letter which flooded the internet he wrote, ”The events of 12th November 2020 removed the only protection I had from the threats and plans directed at me for undertaking the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions anti-corruption assessment report and dictates that I resign as the Special Prosecutor immediately,” he had stated in his resignation letter to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. I should not ordinarily be announcing my resignation to the public myself but the traumatic experience I went through from 20th October 2020 to 2nd November 2020 when I conveyed in a thirteen (13) page letter the conclusions and observations on the analysis of the risk of corruption and anti-corruption assessment on the Report On Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions and Other Matters Related Thereto to the President as Chairman of the National Security Council caution against not bringing my resignation as the Special Prosecutor with immediate to the notice of the Ghanaian public and the world. The reaction I received for daring to produce the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions anti-corruption report convinces me beyond any reasonable doubt that I was not intended to exercise any independence as the Special Prosecutor in the prevention, investigation, prosecution, and recovery of assets of corruption. My position as the Special Prosecutor has consequently become clearly untenable.”

Moments after Martin’s public statement the Presidency replied denying ever interfering with his work as the Special Prosecutor.

Secretary to the President Nana Asante Bediatuo wrote in a nine-pager, “Your accusation of interference with your functions simply on account of the meeting the president held with you is perplexing. In exercise of what you considered to be your powers under Act 959, you had voluntarily proceeded to produce the Agyapa Report. The president had no hand in your work. Without prompting from any quarter within the Executive. you delivered a letter purporting to be a copy of your report to the president.

The secretary’s response also expressed, “The purpose of presenting a copy of the Agyapa report to the president is decipherable from paragraph 32 of your letter to the president in which you indicated that you hoped the report will be ‘used to improve current and future legislative and executive actions to make corruption and corruption-related offences very high-risk enterprise in Ghana.”

Meanwhile, in his recent interview, Martin Amidu warned his detractors to quit attacking him or force him to reveal disturbing secrets.

He said, “So, either the attacks stop or I will defend my integrity even if that means my death. It is something I won by dint of hardwork from the PNDC to date and I am not going to allow anybody, not even the president, to pull that integrity into the mud.”

Kalybos responds to people slamming him and other celebrities who campaigned against Dumelo

Published

Kalybos has reacted to the social media backlash over his decision to campaign for the NPP’s parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency-Lydia Alhassan.


Together with colleague actors Prince David Osei, Bismark the Joke and General Ntatia as well as other celebrities, Kalybos took to the streets of Ayawaso to campaign for the NPP.

Their actions have been condemned by many as actress Beverly Afaglo and media personality Bridget Otoo took to social media to criticize them for shooting their fellow actor and aspiring MP in the shape of John Dumelo in the foot.

Beverly found it inappropriate for Kalybos and co. to choose to campaign for the NPP at the very constituency where John Dumelo, representing the NDC, is running for a seat in parliament.

A video of Kalybos trolling Dumelo and calling the NDC’s presidential candidate, John Mahama, a loser has gone awash on social media as many have opined that his actions were unnecessary.

However, Kalybos in response to the backlash following his showings at the Ayawaso West constituency has questioned his detractors’ knowledge of real democracy.

According to the comic actor, those who spoke against his actions need a lesson on what democracy is that his political choices should not in any way culminate into enmity.

He expressed that he still shares a great friendship with John Dumelo and that the latter understood the difference between friendship and democracy.

Along with a picture of himself and Dumelo taken on a flight, Kalybos made a post on Instagram captioned, ” A letter to all Fellow Ghanaians. I think it’s about time our school system start to teach us what democracy is and what opinions are. We’re all made individually to make different choices and that doesn’t mean an opinion of ‘A’ is an enemy to ‘B’. We tend to forget the rules of Life and Living It and rather make enemies for ourselves we never wanted and that breeds what we call HYPOCRITES. For your information, John Dumelo and I are very cool and we are not determined enemies. So stop creating room for that cus he knows what democracy and friendship is. Meaning we disagree to agree based on your opinion. Myself with some colleagues went to Ayawaso West Wagon, Ablekuma North and James Town to campaign for our beloved Party NPP and our President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo. Why campaign AGAINST whiles you can actually campaign FOR. It’s two different energy. One talks of Good and the other breeds Evil. However the hypocrisy in some of us so called friends are overwhelmingly surprising. A wake up call came for those who chant #idey4u for John Dumelo who are supposed friends and colleagues of John but have never posted or shown support towards his campaign until KALYBOS and Co went to show support for their party NPP. Now we are seeing people posting John, writing essays with BIG grammar as if they attended montessori exhibiting their Hypocrisy whiles we the ‘Sytocians’ did what we believe in. Hmm asem ooo, just be real to yourself and others. Well I am glad I was about to divulge the pretenders who wouldn’t do anything but will say everything. God is watching your buttocks. To @johndumelo1 I wish you all the best in this election and always know #idey4u but you’re in the other side ?. God Bless Ghana ?? “God Bless us all” ??.”

Kalybos mentioned that his friendship with Dumelo did not mean they could not have dissenting political views and asked critics to quit being hypocrites.
