It appears the banter between Communications Minister Dr Edward Omane Boamah and former Attorney General Martin Amidu is far from over.
Moments after the anti-corruption campaigner threw salvos at the minister for describing him a ‘damn liar’ during weekend news analysis programme on Accra-based Joy Fm, the minister has hit back indicating that Mr Amidu needs a doctor.
He wrote on his facebook wall “Martin Amidu you need to see a doctor”
Dr Omane Boamah who is a trained medical doctor himself, however failed to state exactly what ailment the former attorney general could be suffering from that requires the attention of a medical doctor.
According to Mr Amidu, Dr Edward Omane Boamah allegations this weekend on the programme were borne out of ignorance, without referring to the appropriate legal documents.
Martin Amidu in a statement challenged Dr Omane Boamah’s allegation saying his he “relied on the unanimous decision of the Supreme Court dated 29th July 2014 making two declarations against Woyome and Austro-Invest, the client of Lithur-Brew and Co in my arguments to the Court on 10th November 2016 and nobody should jump the gun by calling me “a big damn liar” and perjurer while the case is pending.”
He said the Minister’s utterances and conduct confirms the Government’s impunity and abuse of power in acting unconstitutionally to control the content of even private media houses such as Multi TV/Joy FM where the minister made the allegations against him.
“The drunken tantrums cowardly thrown by Omane Boamah shows the shallowness of his education, understanding, and lack of diligence and industry in researching matters he is to defend the Government on in public.
Simple common sense would have informed the almighty Minister of Communications who sought to take over Multi TV/Joy FM to insult me that in arguing my case before the Supreme Court on 10th November 2016 I referred the Court to its own unanimous decision given in my favour on 29th July 2014,” he stated.
