Ghana’s anti-graft chief, Mr Martin Amidu, on Monday announced his resignation with immediate effect.

Amidu in a statement cited lack of cooperation from the government and state agencies, alongside interference in his work from the presidency as reasons for his resignation

Part of the statement read: “This is to inform the general public that I resigned from my position as the Special Prosecutor of the Office of the Special Prosecutor with immediate effect.

“The reaction I got for daring to produce the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions anti-corruption report convinces me beyond any reasonable doubt that I was not intended to exercise any independence as the Special Prosecutor in the prevention, investigation, prosecution, and recovery of assets of corruption.”

Mr Amidu mentioned that the death of former President Jerry John Rawlings“ removed the only protection he had from the threats and plans targeted at him for undertaking the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transactions anti-corruption assessment report.
