Former President Jerry John Rawlings has admonished the leadership of the Assemblies of God Church to question the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu what may be holding him up from delivering on his mandate.
The former president made these queries when the church leadership made a courtesy call to inform him of the passing of their former General Superintendent, Rev. Dr. Simon Asore, and former President said men like Asore who upheld a very high level of integrity cannot die in vain.
He said a delay in identifying and prosecuting corrupt acts by public figures will lead to impunity and the further perpetuation of crime and corruption.
“I wonder what is holding him up. We do not want to see the perpetuation of crime. We don’t want to see crimes being committed with impunity. The power of virtue must override the power of vice,” the former President said.
Flt Lt Rawlings said after all President Akufo-Addo had also stated that he’s expecting the Special Prosecutor to deliver on his mandate when he (Martin Amidu) is ready.
