Controversial musician cum politician, Kwame Asare Obeng, also known as A Plus has taken the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu to the cleaners for given excuses on why he has failed to fight corruption in the country.
Martin Amidu, has hinted that his office is in a near hopeless situation to deliver its mandate in fighting corruption.
In an article, the former Attorney General said his office has so far had “woefully inadequate” infrastructure and has been under-resourced since its establishment a year ago.
The Office of the Special Prosecutor was established in November 2017 with a specific mandate to oversee cases of corruption, involving public officers and individuals in the private sector.
Many Ghanaians were upbeat following the appointment of Mr. Amidu as the country’s first-ever Special Prosecutor, however the “Citizen Vigilante” has so far failed to make an effective impact at his new role.
Mr. Amidu has compared his situation to that of that of Acting Attorney General of the US Mathew Whitaker, insisting a lack of resources has left the Special Prosecutor’s Office in an almost hopeless situation to fight corruption.
An unhappy A Plus reacting to this claim by the Special Prosecutor said he is beginning to doubt the commitment of Martin Amidu’s towards the fight against corruption.

If you really want to fight corruption you can do it from under a tree masa. Were you not the same person who made all the noise about Woyome? Didn’t you ask the court to allow you to cross examine Woyome when NPP was in opposition? At that time were you the special prosecutor working in an “Oval Office?” Before you become the SP you wrote countless articles about corruption under the NDC. Now HE the president has appointed you SP. Go and prosecute them you say you want a “4 bedroom house with 13 air conditions.” You want to turn ice man abi? Ah!! Even if your office is the problem at least start with woyome till your office is ready anaa? After all the noise, one year on, even Woyome’s money you have not been able to take it. Everyday blaming government.
What happened to that big house at Cantonments you were taken to. I know everything that happens in this country. Were you not taken to a house adjacent the new Bank of Ghana hospital? Didn’t one of the deputy chiefs of staff stop his job and take you there himself? So how did you end up in a three bedroom house? What happened? Government has done it’s part. After all the noise you made, if you are not able to prosecute anyone we will prosecute you ankasa for deceiving us😏😏😏😏😏
