Respect my style of fighting corruption – Anas tells Martin Amidu

Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has advised citizen vigilante Martin Amidu to respect his style of fighting corruption and stop accusing him falsely.

Anas said he respects Mr. Amidu’s style of fighting corruption and believes that the former A-G must accord him the same respect.

The investigative journalist was reacting to Martin Amidu’s attacks on him following his investigations into corruption in the country’s judiciary.

The former Attorney General has insisted that investigation was commissioned by the government, an accusation Anas has vehemently denied.

“Uncle Amidu claims that I have withdrawn some videos. Where are the videos? Who did I leave out?” he quizzed during an exclusive interview on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM Tuesday.

He noted that, “I respect him [Martin Amidu] so much. He has his own style of anticorruption, which perhaps if you give me the next 15 years I will not be able to. I beg him, I also do mine. He should give me the freedom, he is not going to pick and choose what I should do.”

Anas said Mr Amidu there are several areas in the country that need investigations when it comes to corruption; “Parliament is there, if he wants to do parliament please it’s all there. The Executive is there, the GPRTU is there. There are many areas of corruption in this country, we can all choose.”

A not too happy Anas said, “I don’t want to be seen in a back and forth fight with him over this. It doesn’t mean well for the country. We all have to be at one corner and respect everybody’s style of fighting. If you say you don’t like collaborating with government, I say I do.”

The award-winning journalist urged Martin Amidu to go court if he has problems with his style of fighting corrupting stressing that “We will meet him there squarely”.
