Akufo-Addo accepts Martin Amidu’s resignation

President Akufo-Addo has accepted the resignation of Martin Amidu as Special Prosecutor.

In a letter Tuesday, the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, stated that the President “has taken due note of the other matters raised in your letter, and government will issue a statement responding to them in due course”.

Three years after his appointment, Mr Amidu wrote to the President on Monday explaining his decision to resign from office to enable his appointing authority “to take steps to appoint a replacement to that position as required by law.”

In his resignation letter, the former Attorney General also revealed that his appointment authority made no effort to ensure that he was paid for his work since the state engaged his services in 2018.

Accordingly, the President has directed Mr Amidu is remunerated for his services to the State.

“The President has directed me to ensure that all emoluments benefits due you under law are paid to you accordingly,” the Chief of Staff said.,
