Martin A.B.K. Amidu was on oath into office on Friday, February 23, 2018 by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Flagstaff House. Amidu at the swearing in ceremony thanked the Attorney General and the President for appointing him, and promised to fight corruption in the country without fear or favour.
Martin Amidu, also promised not to fail in delivering on his mandate, saying not even claims that he will embark on a political witch-hunting drive will not deter him from working. He said, ‘I wish first and foremost to thank Your Excellency, Mr. President, for the very fact of considering me as a fit and proper person for this position even though I come from the opposite pond of social democracy and in the past, we have been very strong and robust professional adversaries in the development of the constitutional law of our dear country from its inception. Your Excellency’s invitation to me to confirm my acceptance to be Special Prosecutor and my acceptance of the offer demonstrates a fundamental democratic principle and belief to your credit that few people have adhered to for the past twenty-five years. Namely, those adversaries are not enemies and must collaborate for national development by putting Ghana First.
I would not have accepted to come to this job if I did not trust Your Excellency’s integrity and honour from our long years of association from opposite sides at the Bar. As an aside I will wish the public to know that nobody has served me personally with any Writ or Statement of Case or injunction challenging my nomination, approval, and appointment so as to restrain me from accepting this appointment.
