But a year after his appointment and subsequent swearing-in, Martin Amidu is yet to prosecute any case although there are reports of many petitions submitted to his office for investigation and legal action. Martin Amidu’s supposed nonperformance recently forced former president Jerry John Rawlings, who has spoken largely against corruption, especially in the Mahama government to wonder what may have kept Martin Amidu from going ahead to prosecute cases of alleged corruption.
