The First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei-Owusu, has said that Special Prosecutor nominee Mr. Martin Amidu was really prepared for his vetting on Tuesday February 13 hence his superb display.
The anti-corruption campaigner was nominated to a boisterous applause but he first had to be vetted and approved by Parliament in line with the Special Prosecutor Act (Act 959) which was duly held on Tuesday.
And according to the chairman of the appointment committee, the former Attorney General’s brilliant response to the questions asked him testified how adequately prepared he was for his appointment.
”Judging from the way he answered the questions asked him during the vetting clearly showed he was more prepared for the job and ready to execute his duties professionally” He told Kwame Adinkrah, host of Abusua Nkommo.
”Even though he hasn’t started work, some of his answers were really convincing that he was ready to do the job president Akufo-Addo has offered him. Personally I was ok with his conduct during the vetting though some believed he was a bit arrogant in answering some questions”
The Member of Parliament for Bekwai in the Ashanti region is however confident that Mr. Martin Amidu would apply the ethics of his profession and work professionally despite the notion by a section of Ghanaians that the ace legal practitioner has been appointed by the first gentle man of the land Nana Addo to witch-hunt his own opposition NDC members.
”I do not agree with those saying Martin Aminu has been appointed by the NPP government to witch hunt members of the NDC party I can tell you that isn’t the case but I believe he has come to self the good people of Ghana especially in our consistent fight against corruption in the country”.
