Former Attorney General, Martin Amidu has vowed to meet with equal force, continuous efforts by some members of the National Democratic Congress to malign him without any substantive proof.
Mr. Amidu has been at the receiving end of backlash together with former President Jerry John Rawlings following certain critical comments they both have consistently made against the NDC which in the views of some party members cast doubt on their loyalty to the party.
The latest controversy for which reason the Council of Elders of the party is expected to meet today for deliberations was fueled by an article written by former deputy Chief of Staff, Dr. Valerie Sawyer attacking Martin Amidu and Mr. Rawlings.
The latest statement released by Mr. Amidu is in response to a claim reportedly made by National Organiser of the NDC, Kofi Adams on Kasapa Fm that “Martin Amidu is being ‘remote-controlled’ by the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).”
Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Koku Anyidoho is also reported to have said that “the incessant attacks by Citizen Vigilante is borne out of envy, jealousy and hatred for Former President John Mahama because he was not given another opportunity as running mate of the party.”
However, the Citizen Vigilante said in his latest statement that, the claims are without basis. He further vowed that “I am for peace but if the Mahama surrogate NDC faction wants war it will be taboo to the values of the core NDC grounded in the 4th June and 31st December Revolutions for me to run away from it.”
