Martin Amidu is too old to serve; Ayine sues at Supreme Court

137

Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga East, Dr. Dominic Akuritinga Ayine, has sued the Attorney General and Special Prosecutor nominee, Mr. Martin ABK Amidu.

The former Deputy Attorney General, in a suit filed at the Supreme Court on Monday, is seeking among other things, a declaration that Mr. Martin Amidu is not eligible for employment in any public office created per his age.

Among the reliefs being sought, the plaintiff is asking the SC to issue “a declaration that by true and proper interpretation of Articles 190(1)(d) and 199(4) of the 1992 Constitution, no person above the age of 65 years is eligible for employment in any public office created under Article 190(1)(d)”.

It is therefore the the plaintiff’s case that Mr. Martin ABK Amidu is more than 65 years and as such is not qualified to be approved by parliament as a Special Prosecutor.
