I’m still a founding member of NDC – Martin Amidu hits back
Martin Alamisi Burnes Kaiser Amidu, Ghana’s Special Prosecutor insists he is still a founding member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) despite internal machinations to strip him off that title.
“I insisted that whether they liked it or not I was a foundation member of the original NDC which the new NDC of 2016 couldn’t take from me”, he disclosed in his latest epistle sighted by MyNewsGh.com.
The former Attorney General who is engaged in what could pass for a media ware with the General Secretary of the NDC, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia maintains he did not consult him before accepting his appointment as Special Prosecutor.
He described claims by the NDC scribe that he personally warned him against accepting the position as Special Prosecutor as hallucination saying “common sense will prompt any reasonable person who witnessed the unfolding political events in this country before and immediately after the year 2016 to revisit them to refresh his or her memory. It will then be recollected as no secret, when one does this as a reasonable person, that there was no way Mr. Asiedu Nketia or the NDC could have spoken to me or warned me against accepting the offer to be Special Prosecutor from the President because I was not on such speaking terms with him or them during that period.

Some members of the party’s Functional Executive Committee at the time attempted through surrogates to suspend and dismiss me from the NDC by claiming to bring disciplinary action against me for alleged misconduct. I raised preliminary objections to the charges in a letter addressed to the General Secretary by EMS when I read them in the media on the grounds that I had not been a paid up member of the NDC since I left office in January 2012 and could not per their Constitution be a member subject to discipline by them”.
