Former Attorney-General Mr Martin Amidu has issued yet another disclaimer insisting he never authorized Deputy AG, Ebo Barton Odro to write a letter to the Finance Ministry to pay some GH¢4.2 million to African Automobile Ltd.
In a letter addressed to the Auditor-General, Mr Amidu said “I was the Attorney-General on whose behalf the Deputy Attorney-General purported to have signed the said letter. I write to formally inform you that I never authorized the signature of the letter by the Deputy Attorney-General as he alleges in the letter.”
