"Petty Old Man, Stop Pushing Hatred Driven Agenda Against The NDC" - Sam George Lashes Martin Amidu
The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George has descended heavily on the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu calling him a petty old man who is pushing a hatred driven agenda against the largest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Airbus scandal.
According to him, Mr. Martin Amidu is being controlled by President Akufo-Addo to speed up in his finding as an attempt to demoralize the NDC ahead of the December 2020 general election.
Speaking at the floor of Parliament, Sam George said "Martin Amidu is a petty old man who is pushing a hatred driven agenda against the NDC in the Airbus Scandal"
Sam George came out hard on Martin Amidu after a release by Interpol placed an arrest on Mr. Samuel Adam Mahama, brother of the NDC Presidential Candidate and three other persons.
He added that following the appointment of Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, the Special Prosecutor and the NPP are doing everything possible to destroy the enthusiasm the partnership has brought to the NDC.
Sam George said "President Akufo-Addo is robotically controlling Martin Amidu to pour water on the action. The whole move will not fly. I foresee a situation where despite whatever hidden agenda the government has against the NDC, we will succeed in our campaign and win the upcoming December Elections"
The International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) has issued an arrest warrant for Samuel Adam Fosters also known as Samuel Adam Mahama in relation to his role in the famous Airbus bribery saga.
