Special Prosecutor nominee
Regarding his appointment, he declined to comment on it but when he was asked about comments from members of his party about his appointment, he responded: "Let them say whatever they want. When I get to parliament, I would say what I feel."
Questioned on claims that he is not a paid-up member of the NDC, the Citizen Vigilante retorted: "What I am supposed to say should I reply? It does not look reasonable.”
"Wait and when I get to parliament they may ask that question then I will answer. I wait till President has sent the nomination to parliament and parliament will decide negatively or positively”, he added.
Mr Amidu was nominated as the Special Prosecutor on the recommendation of the Attorney General by President Nana Akufo-Addo last Thursday.
His appointment has received a bi-partisan support from some analyst saying his nomination was a "masterstroke."
Mr Amidu served as Attorney General under Professor John Evans Atta Mills.
He resigned after suspecting interference in his work.
