Amidu finally gets office
The cry of the Special Prosecutor for an official office space to work has been listened to by government.
The Nana Addo-led government has allocated an office space to Mr Martin Amidu who has complained ‘bitterly’ that since his appointment in February 2018, he is unable to effectively deliver on his mandate because his office is under-resourced.
President Nana Akufo-Addo swore in Martin Amidu as Ghana’s first Special Prosecutor early this year.
A two-storey building which appears ready for renovation and close to the International Press Center on the Gamel Abdul Nasser Avenue at Ridge will house Amidu and his team of legal minded persons to work.
Accra based Citi FM however reported that, ‘one of the floors of the building has seven rooms, a conference room, and stores, while the second floor has nine rooms.’
They further reported that, there are ‘broken windows and parts of the compound overgrown with weeds.
There were cobwebs everywhere and the floors were covered in dust.’
Engineers of the facility said the renovation of the office will take at least six months - and funds have already been approved for the job.
