Former President Jerry John Rawlings has applauded the appointment of Mr Martin Amidu as Ghana’s first Special Prosecutor.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced Mr Amidu’s appointment subject to parliamentary approval at the Flagstaff House in Accra on Thursday, 11 January 2018.

Mr Rawlings who was hopeful that Parliament would approve the appointment said, “The President couldn’t have made a better choice”.

“The president by this appointment has risen above partisanship and recognised a highly principled citizen. Mr Amidu has proven to be a fearless anti-corruption crusader whose pursuit of truth and justice has won him national admiration. I call on all Ghanaians to offer the appointee the required support and information in pursuit of what will undoubtedly be a challenging role,” Mr Rawlings added.

He further urged Ghanaians to pray for God’s guidance and strength for Mr Amidu as he works to restore the wheels of justice.

Mr Amidu if approved by parliament will carry out the extraordinary responsibility of independently fighting corruption.

He will have the full authority to initiate investigations into all suspected corruption-related offences of all persons in public service.

Mr Amidu was the former Attorney General under the previous National Democratic Congress government led by late President John Evans Atta Mills.
