Govt Denies Attempt To Harm Martin Amidu

Government has denied claims by former Attorney General, Martin Amidu that some people in government and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are plotting to harm him. Addressing the media at the Flagstaff House on Friday, Minister of Information and Media Relations, Mahama Ayariga denied the allegations. He explained that government has a responsibility to protect all Ghanaians including Mr Amidu and will not renege on it. “It is clearly not the case that the government will in any way and I believe also the NDC take any step that will endanger the life of anyone. Government has a responsibility to protect every citizen.” He urged Mr Amidu to be on guard and report to the security agencies if he has concerns about his security, saying “the security agencies will take steps to ensure that he gets the right kind of protection that is needed.”
