Rawlings seeking favour from government to save wife from prosecution - Failed MP

Policy analyst and political social commentator, Mr. Frank Aboagye Danyansah has laughed at former President Jerry John  Rawlings for vouching the integrity of the  Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu.

"It is laughable and populist move by former President Rawlings to say Martin Amidu stands for NDC", he believes.

"Rawlings is trying to get sympathy from the Akufo-Addo government so that his wife accused of many corrupt practice including Nsawam Canary rot will not be put to jail", the Progressive People's Party (PPP) 2016 parliamentary candidate for Obuasi fumed.

"What has changed on the side of Martin Amidu we don't know today?", the outspoken PPP communicator quizzed in an exclusive interview with reporter Kwabena Danso-Dapaah.

The NDC  founder during a Town Hall meeting of cadres and NDC activists in Accra, criticised members of the party for taking Mr. Amidu for granted and added instead of making good use of his intellect and expertise, he was mostly greeted with nonchalance. 

He mentioned that although the party was made up of honest and positive people with strong integrity, there were also a good number of dishonest people amongst them. 

“The mere fact that Mr. Amidu's appointment as Special Prosecutor makes some members of the NDC and the NPP quiver show how trustworthy and concrete Mr. Amidu's reputation is”, he suggested. 

“When people in NDC and NPP are equally angry about the appointment of Martin Amidu, what should it tell you? Martin should have been used by us (NDC) but no we checked him in, when he is an embodiment of what we stand for.” 

Rawlings’ generous words about Mr. Amidu will not come as a surprise as he is always heaping praises on the latter's dexterity.
