Amidu punches Kofi Adams, Anyidoho


Anti graft crusader and former Attorney General, Martin B. K Amidu has described the National Organiser and Deputy General Secretary of the oppositional National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams and Koku Anyidoho respectively as attack dogs.

In his latest response to claims made against him (Mr. Amidu) in the infighting within the party, he accused the two officers of propagating falsehood which is their stock in trade.

“These two attack dogs engaging in the monotonous acts of character assassination to avoid the real issue, deliberately repeated similar unfounded accusations against me that I had creditably refuted with supporting facts and evidence, which the very media carrying the recycled accusations had published in previous years. Political office holders like the National Organizer and Deputy Secretary General of political parties are mandated by the spirit of the 1992 Constitution to exhibit ethical actions and conduct in their relationship with the public and their party members”, he said.

For instance, he said, Mr Adams’ claim that he was being remote-controlled by the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) government against the NDC was falsehood and must be discarded.

In a statement released on Monday, August 14, 2017, Mr. Amidu recalled making a vow to late President Prof John Evans Atta Mills that he would ensure the government complied with the 1992 Constitution.

He said, the deputy chief scribe of the NDC, who was also the former Communication’s Director in the Mills/Mahama Government did what he knows best in telling lies.

According to him, Mr. Anyidoho’s accusation against him on Kasapa FM on August 8, 2017 that he was on payroll of the NPP was without a shred of facts or evidence.

“He (Koku Anyidoho) was reported on the internet to have stated that, ‘he has strong conviction that I’m being ‘remote-controlled’ by the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP)”, Mr. Amidu said.

However, apart from the repetitious character assassination, Mr Amidu said his sweeping allegations without further proof were not, and cannot be the answer to the contentions contained in article, for whose sake he was being cowardly attacked personally instead of addressing the issues in conflict.

“As though the NEC had apportioned the personal and character attacks between the Deputy General Secretary and the National Organizer, the latter, Kofi Adams, the next day 9th August 2017 took over the baton from the former to publish to the whole world that: ‘The incessant attacks by Citizen Vigilante is borne out of envy, jealousy and hatred for Former President John Dramani Mahatma because he was not given another opportunity as running mate of the party, National Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC),’ Mr Kofi Adams has said.

“These two attack dogs engaging in the monotonous acts of character assassination to avoid the real issue, deliberately repeated similar unfounded accusations against me that I had creditably refuted with supporting facts and evidence, which the very media carrying the recycled accusations had published in previous years. Political office holders like the National Organizer and Deputy Secretary General of political parties are mandated by the spirit of the 1992 Constitution to exhibit ethical actions and conduct in their relationship with the public and their party members,” he said.
