Nana Not Complicit In Delta Food Case Amidu

Former Attorney-General and anti-corruption crusader Martin A.B.K. Amidu has said NPP flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo cannot be blamed for the arbitral award against the Government of Ghana to Delta Foods Ltd.

In his latest epistle titled: ‘Commissions of Enquiry and Non-Political White Papers’, the Citizen Vigilante exonerated the twice-defeated presidential candidate, who was a former Attorney General in the Kufuor administration, from any wrongdoing in the matter, saying: “Nana Akufo-Addo had nothing to do with the Delta Foods Ltd. consent judgment and resulting accumulated interests.”

Instead, Mr. Amidu fingered former President John Evans Atta Mills, then Veep, accusing him of arrogating unto himself the duties of the legal advisor to Government.

“It was the handy work of Vice-President Mills usurping the Attorney-General’s office. He carried this bad habit of usurping the Attorney-General’s functions into his Presidency, which I resisted as the Attorney-General with all the constitutional authority at my disposal,” Mr Amidu asserted.

Mr Amidu said the late professor’s proclivity to meddle in the AG’s duties goes back to his days as Vice-President when his “unconstitutional” involvement in the Delta Food case led to the award of a judgment debt against the state.

He said Prof. Mills, as President also attempted to interfere in the AG-Waterville, Woyome and AG-Isofoton & Forson cases, but he, as AG, constitutionally resisted. Mr Amidu said the Supreme Court’s rulings on these matters exonerate him.
