A Deputy Minister for Information, Pius Enam Hadzide has said that the resignation of the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu will not affect the chances of  the governing New Patriotic Party at winning the December 7 polls.

Martin Amidu resigned from office on Monday, November 16, 2020, citing interference with his independence, nonpayment of salaries and the demise of his “only protection”, former President Jerry John Rawlings.

The National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi subsequently said: “what it means is that the country has lost the fight against corruption under the leadership of Akufo-Addo. We just have to change direction on December 7 which is 20 days from today and vote in a party, which may not be perfect, but has a leader who has a clear commitment to fight corruption regardless of who is involved”.

But according to Mr. Hadzide, contrary to these thoughts, Martin Amidu’s resignation is not a reflection of Akufo-Addo’s fight against corruption and would not affect the opinion of Ghanaians on the track record of the NPP.

“Let me assure you that we believe and trust in the people of Ghana that they will go to the polls and will make assessments of political parties and of candidates based on their track record and credibility of their promises. Fortunately for us, the two leading political parties and contenders have all had their chances on the seat of government.”

“Former President John Mahama has had four years, that is without counting his days with Atta Mills, as Vice President and so has the current President, Akufo-Addo. The people are going to assess these candidates on their track records, and we are confident that with what we have done in terms of our policies that is turning Ghana to the food basket of West Africa,” he added.
