Martin Amidu, has laid to bear the challenges he’s facing in executing his mandate as the Special Prosecutor.

Parliament passed a law in November 2017 to establish the Office of the Special Prosecutor as a specialized agency to investigate specific cases of corruption, involving public officers and individuals in the private sector implicated in corrupt practices.

But several months on, the office is yet to be fully effective after the noise that greeted the appointment of the man affectionately called ‘Citizen Vigilante’, for his anti-corruption campaigns.

Speaking at the National Audit Forum organised by the Ghana Audit Service, Martin Amidu said his office lacks the resources to deliver.

Martin Amidu warned that the office will not be able to fully discharge its duties if the situation is not addressed soon.
