Akufo Addo orders payment of Martin Amidu’s two year salaries

Since Martin Amidu took Office, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has instructed that all outstanding salaries be paid following the law.

This was contained in an explanation from the Workplace of the President to acknowledge Mr Martin Amidu's renunciation from the Workplace.

Nana Akufo-Addo's organization to the Head of Staff, Hon. "The President has directed me to ensure that all emoluments and benefits due you under the law are paid to you accordingly," Akosua Frema Osei-Opare stated.

In his resignation announcement, Martin Amidu clarified that the government had not attempted to pay him for his two years of service.

He also said that Jane Cynthia Naa Korshie Lamptey, the Deputy Special Prosecutor, has yet to receive her pay.

"I need to state for the records, and contrary to public perceptions, that my appointment letter was received on 5th February 2020 (almost two (2)-years after my appointment). The copy addressees made no efforts to honour any of the conditions of work in terms of compensations and benefits of the position ever since my warrant of appointment was issued on 23rd February 2018 to the date of my letter of resignation. 

I accepted the offer on 10th January 2018 to be nominated as Special Prosecutor because Mr President and Ghanaians knew I have been an anti-corruption crusader all my life and not an anti-corruption entrepreneur."

"This explains why I have never put the payments and benefits of the Office as central to my commitment and my passion for the establishment of an independent, effective, efficient and impartial anti-corruption Office of the Special Prosecutor before the end of the first term of Mr President. This has not been possible for several reasons. The Deputy Special Prosecutor has also not been paid any emoluments since her appointment, and there is the need to redress that situation for her now that I am out of the way," he said in the statement.
