A Constitutional Lawyer and Law lecturer at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Justice Srem Sai, has hailed the appointment of Martin Amidu, as Ghana's first Special Prosecutor.

According to him, Mr Amidu has the track record and the experience to handle the new assignment.

Mr Amidu was named as the Special Prosecutor by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Thursday, 11 January 2018, at the Flagstaff House in Accra.

The Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo, nominated Mr Amidu and his nomination was accepted by Nana Akufo-Addo.

Mr Amidu 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.

Speaking to Chief Jerry Forson, host of the Ghana Yensom show on Accra 100.5FM on Friday, 12 January 2018, Justice Sai said: “If we're talking of experience he is there, if we are talking of personal qualities in terms of determination, conviction, he is there. He has the track record for this job.

“So I'll be very cautious in saying that there is conflict of interest or anything like that.

“Rather, I'll look at the appointment from an institutional perspective. I think those who have worked with him, those who know him have said a lot about his personal qualities, but, I will rather look at the institutional framework of the criminal justice in itself because that is where he is going to work and no matter how perfect he is for the job, if the system within which he is going to work is as imperfect as anything, then, you and I will probably agree that the result we expect may not be what we'll get.”
