NDC Has Unleashed Suhuyini And Sammy Gyamfi To Attack Me - Martin Amidu

Former Special Prosecutor Martin A. B. K. Amidu has raised serious concerns over what he describes as a targeted attack by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) leadership, including high-profile figures like Alhassan Suhuyini and Sammy Gyamfi.

Martin Amidu alleges that these attacks, spearheaded by NDC Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, stem from unverified claims about a petition he allegedly submitted for the removal of the Special Prosecutor.

Amidu expressed his bafflement over the situation, questioning why John Dramani Mahama, the leader and flagbearer of the NDC, would initiate such an aggressive campaign against him.

"What has really baffled me, and which is what I have been trying to understand, is the reason for which John Dramani Mahama, who is the leader and flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has unleashed his NDC attack dogs such as Alhassan Suhuyini, Sammy Gyamfi, and to crown it all, the Chairman of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, on me since 17 May 2024," Amidu stated in a statement released on May 26.

The controversy revolves around a purported petition dated April 30, 2024, which allegedly called for the removal of Special Prosecutor Kissi Agyebeng. Amidu has challenged the authenticity of this document, claiming it lacks the necessary verification.

"I cannot understand why the NDC will collaborate with Kissi Agyebeng’s preferred rented media house and his chief executioner, Sampson Lardy Anyenini, to make allegations against me without publishing the alleged petition on which the allegations are based to provide me the opportunity to confirm or deny my signature and rebut or admit the accusations," he said.

Amidu also questioned the role of the Chief Justice in this matter, casting doubt on the legitimacy of a document attributed to her.

He outlined several inconsistencies and procedural errors that led him to believe the document might be a forgery.

"I have every reason to question the authenticity of the document attributed to the Chief Justice because I established with mathematical precision with the assistance of information and communication technologies (ICT) that a Joint Statement published at the instance of Kissi Agyebeng as a Joint Statement by the OSP and the Judicial Service of Ghana (JSG) was a forgery by the OSP," Amidu asserted.

Furthermore, Amidu criticized the media's handling of the allegations, particularly targeting Joy FM for what he perceives as biased reporting.

"Joy FM and the NDC have refused or failed to publish the letter from the Presidency to the Chief Justice or the alleged petition for purposes of authentication to enable a reasoned response from me as the Joy FM’s accused in its trial in the court of public opinion," he argued.

Amidu concluded his statement by affirming his commitment to fighting corruption and defending the 1992 Constitution, despite the personal attacks and public scrutiny.

"I will continue to defend the 1992 Constitution against all greedy bastards abusing the rights of citizens under the guise of law enforcement," he declared.
