National Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Kofi Adams says Mr. Martin Amidu cannot resign from the party on Television.

According to him, he should officially write to the party to notify them about his resignation from the party.

Mr. Kofi Adams who disclosed this on Okay FM's Ade Akye Abia programme, explained that Mr. Martin Amidu is already before the party's disciplinary committee and that he is suppose to follow party structure, if he wishes to resign from the party.

"Citizen Vigilante" - as Mr. Martin Amidu is affectionately called - who has been appointed Special Prosecutor disclosed at vetting that per his appointment into a public office, he ceases to be a member of any political party.

However, Mr. Martin Amidu insists he is a founding member of the National Democratic Congress.

Martin Amidu on Tuesday, February 13, faced Parliament’s Appointments Committee in what could probably be the longest ever parliamentary vetting session for a single individual in the 4th Republic.

The Special Prosecutor nominee responded to over 180 questions from all members of the committee in the over 7-hour long session.

The National Democratic Congres (NDC) Minority asked the most questions; 75% of all questions asked, with the caucus’ leader, Haruna Iddrisu, being the individual who asked the most number of questions.

Most of the questions focused on past statements and articles Martin Amidu had written.

There is, however, a pending suit at the Supreme Court by NDC member and former Deputy Attorney General Dominic Ayine, challenging Amidu’s nomination.

He argues that Mr. Amidu, 66, has passed the age that requires him to serve in that office.
