Ghana’s Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has resigned from his position.

Mr. Amidu resigned on Monday, November 16, 2020 after holding the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) for three years.

He explained the cause of his resignation in an official letter he sent to President Nana Akufo-Addo.

Martin Amidu accused President Akufo-Addo of interfering with his functions.

He said ‘Your Excellency was acting as a judge in your own cause usurping my functions to take any independent follow-up actions on the anti-corruption assessment report’.

Amidu further stated that:


‘I should not ordinarily be announcing my resignation to the public myself but the traumatic experience I went through from October 20, 2020, to November 2, 2020, when I conveyed in a 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 cautions against not bringing my resignation as the Special Prosecutor with immediate to the notice of the Ghanaian public and the world’.

Amidu said he formally informed President Akufo-Addo of his resignation to enable him ‘to take steps to appoint a replacement to that position as required by law’.


But that is yet to be confirmed or otherwise by the Office of the President.
