The sudden resignation of Martin Amidu as Ghana’s first Special Prosecutor has given rise to discussions about the Auditor General Daniel Yao Domelovo, who through a presidential directive was asked to proceed on his accumulated leave.
According to several social media users, the Akufo-Addo-led government has carved an unconvincing reputation for itself with regards to the fight against corruption in public offices.
The focus of discussions on Twitter sought to unravel the direction of Ghana’s corruption fight in the future.
To some users, Martin Amidu’s resignation vindicates Daniel Domelovo who after some weeks into his leave began complaining about some issues in his office.
Others who contributed to the conversation were convinced that some people in the ruling government who shared close ties with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo were untouchable.
Martin Amidu in his resignation letter cited the numerous interferences by the presidency in his work as the Special Prosecutor.
The Special Prosecutor was appointed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo in 2018. His office has since been the subject of public scrutiny.
In the same year he was appointed, Martin Amidu complained about how some key members of the Akufo-Addo government had refused to produce some documents to fast his investigations.
