The Special Prosecutor nominee, Martin Burns Kaiser Alamisi Amidu has stated his abhorrence to the tendency where politicians embezzle state money for personal aggrandizement.
According to him, Ghana is not a milking cow to allow such debasing tendencies to continue when the mass of the people stay impoverished.
Speaking at Parliament’s appointment committee sitting in Accra during his vetting, Mr Amidu reiterated his commitment to reversing the worrying trend of corruption in the country when approved as Special Prosecutor.
He indicated his readiness to be a moral compass where every act of corruption will be investigated and prosecuted when need be.
‘’Ghana is not a milking cow where anybody can fill his or her pocket with money and funds meant for the people just because he or she happens to be a minister of state’’, Martin Amidu reinforced.
Stating his avowed stance on corruption, Mr Amidu noted the importance of dealing with the canker with all the power the state can wield.
According to him, if corruption is stopped with all the measures the state can devise the country will not need the assistance from elsewhere to support its budget.
The veteran Lawyer stressed his desire to apply diligence to all matters that may come before him in the discharge of his duties.
He promised to divorce himself from partisan leanings or family ties so as to deal with matters and cases that borders on corruption.
‘’I am resolved to be as impartial and diligent as I can ever be so as to discharge my duties as enshrined in the law setting up this office am seeking to occupy’’, Mr Amidu stressed.
The nominee swore to administer his office fearlessly and flawlessly so as to protect the good people of the country.
This, he stressed is because crime and corruption has no color or political leanings on its own.
According to him, lawyers are trained to be independent minded and would apply such trait and knowledge while in office.
The nominee promised to administer his office with respect to all manner of persons, stating that no one needed to fear about his coming into office.
‘’I bear no grudges with anyone or any political party because I am determined to do all I can to bring fairness to my job’’, Mr Martin stated.
