Former Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Martin A.B.K. Amidu says people are fed up with the "lies" churn out by the Deputy Information Minister.
The former AG also descended heavily on Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa over what he says are the Deputy Information Minister's attempts at undermining the powers of the substantive Information Minister, Fritz Baffuor.
Martin Amidu stated that the actions of the Deputy Information Minister are creating a negative impact on the NDC as well as the electoral fortunes of the ruling party.
According to Mr. Martin Amidu, the Deputy Information Minister had called him to plead that Isofoton SA should be paid the monies that they claimed were due them.
A request the former AG said he turned down with the excuse that the matter was pending in court.
Although the Deputy Information Minister who also spoke to Oman FM admitted calling Mr. Amidu on phone, he however denied portions of the former AG's submission that he pleaded that Isofoton should be paid monies owed them.
Nevertheless the anti corruption crusader said it was even wrong for the Deputy Information Minister to have called him over the matter without referring it to his (Ablakwa) boss (Minister of Information)at the time, John Tia Akologo.
“Mr. Okudzeto is a young man, and he should take upon himself responsibilities befitting a deputy Minister and not to be usurping positions of substantive Ministers. ..when John Tia was there, he rendered him virtually useless”, Martin Amidu said.
