Martin Amidu has accused John Mahama-led government that lacks integrity and honour.
Former Attorney General, Martin Amidu has served notice to the Mahama-government that he will continue to defend himself in the media because the Presidency has been reduced to “a leaking pot of correspondence.”
He accused the government of lacking integrity and honour after a confidential letter of apology he wrote to the late former President John Mills was leaked to the media.
The Alhaj newspaper last Thursday published Martin Amidu’s apology letter over a confrontation between Mr Amidu and the late President.
Mr Amidu has argued subsequently in an exclusive interview on the Citi Breakfast Show that he was asked by two important statesmen at the time to write the letter.
The former AG has expressed disquiet about the publication of the letter, describing it as a “dishonour” to the image of the Presidency.
In a statement copied to citifmonline.com, Mr. Amidu observed that “any government and its political party which seeks to deceive its citizens by subterfuge and chicanery (as in this case of the libelous publications by the Al-Hajj and other media after the consent judgment) in the name of propaganda is bound to be found out soon by the voting public which will exact a price for the deceit at election time.”
Such practice, he said, “brings dishonour to the President, the Government and the party, NDC. It also magnifies perceptions of corruption from the Presidency and the Government as the lack of integrity and honour in governance is an integral part of the manifestation of endemic corruption.”
He announced that he will not in any way be “diverted from the original values of the NDC [National Democratic Congress] notwithstanding any amount of dishonourable propaganda they may make against me.”
However, according to him, it is not too late for “this NDC Government and Party to revert to the laudable values of honour and integrity which is at the core of the NDC as a social democratic party before the 2016 Elections. Putting Ghana First before Government or Party is the only social democratic solution and salvation for the Black Star to shine again.”
