Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu is urging the presidency to take his report on analysis of the risk of corruption on the Agyapa Royalties deal seriously.
In a statement, he cautioned the Presidential spokesperson Eugene Arhin to desist from downplaying his analysis on the Agyapa Royalties deal.
“The sixty-four(64) page report must be taken seriously to make corruption a very high-risk enterprise in Ghana,” he said in a statement presented to the presidency.
According to him, the statement from the presidency following his work on the royalties deal appeared to patronise his office and the tedious job they’ve done.
Mr. Amidu said he declined an offer by the President to hand him a copy of the Finance Minister’s responses to his analysis on the royalties deal.
Former President John Mahama earlier said returning the controversial Agyapa Royalties Agreement to Parliament is not an option.
He stressed that there is ample evidence that the state has been shortchanged in the deal and should be withdrawn completely.
