Ghana’s Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu has challenged former President John Mahama to voluntarily submit himself to his office for probe over the Airbus saga.
It comes after Mr Mahama called the Special Prosecutor a coward for mentioning his name in his corruption risk analysis on the Agyapa Mineral royalties deal.
“If you think that I’m indicted on Airbus, accuse me directly but because he is a coward and he knew that Agyapa was going to be discussed today, so he put a paragraph on Airbus to equalise the discussion; what kind of stupidity is this?,” Mahama fumed.
Reacting to the comment, Mr Amidu said: “Your Excellency, the wise and the brave former President John Dramani Mahama, man-up, wise-up, and be brave enough to come with two lawyers of your own choice to be cautioned and interrogated by this Office to demonstrate your valour and wisdom as not being elected Government Official 1 and also as not being the first guarantor to Samuel Adam Mahama’s passport application”.
Mr Amidu also fended off criticisms over his decision not to investigate Mr Mahama as a result of the upcoming elections.
