Attorney General sacked


Published

President John Atta-Mills has sacked Attorney-General, Martin Amidu, by letter.

According to the Ghana News Agency, the president wrote to the sacked minister citing an apparent ‘misconduct’ at a meeting last Friday. The letter states that Mr Amidu’s behaviour at the meeting was “incompatible with acceptable standards” of a minister and appointee of the president.

The president has placed Interior Minister, Dr Benjamin Kunbour in the role as a temporary measure. The sacking is rumoured to have sparked a likely wider Cabinet reshuffle.
