A cross section of the public that the GNA interacted with for their reaction on the appointment said Martin Amidu could perform to expectation because of his crusade against corruption.

They said the appointee, over the years, had shown unrelenting desire and commitment to retrieve public funds allegedly stolen by public officials and politicians.

Most of them were of the view that his appointment would fast-track the retrieval of monies allegedly stolen by public officials.

They cited Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome as one of the persons Mr Amidu should focus his lenses on in retrieving the GHc51.2 million paid to him by the previous government over a contract he did not have with the State.
