Amidu petitioned to investigate Mahama over 'diverted' $13m E.O. Group dev't cash


Four private citizens have petitioned Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu to investigate former President John Dramani Mahama for allegedly diverting $13 million meant for the development of the Western Region from the E.O. Group.

The petitioners, : Emmanuel Owusu, Eric Dumenu Akatsi, Peprah Kyei Baffour and Dawda Eric, said in their petition, dated June 18, 2018, that they wish to “invoke section 3(1)(b) of the Office of the Special Prosecutor Act,2017(Act 959) to have former President John Dramani investigated for alleged diversion of $13m meant for the development of Western Region from the E.O. group of company as part of their corporate social responsibilities. The petitioners are citizens of the Republic of Ghana with the constitutional right to expose and combat crime in the interest of the good people of Ghana.” 

The basis for the petition, according to the petitioners, is informed by an article published on Ghanaweb.com on December 2, 2016, by Mr Amidu, before he was appointed as Special Prosecutor.

“The said article alleged that former President John Dramani diverted $13m to private pockets when he served as Vice-President,” the petition said.

It added: “We do consider the allegation against him as criminal and for that matter, we humbly beseech your office to have this matter investigated to get those monies retrieved back to the public purse. It is our conviction that, the issue be considered in the interest of the Republic of Ghana.”
