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.”

According to the former AG’s letter to the Auditor-General, the Deputy AG, Mr Barton Odro who also the Member of Parliament for Cape Coast, on 22 September 2011 signed a letter addressed to the Finance Minister, in respect of a matter involving African Automobile Ltd., directing the Finance Minister to “authorize payment of the sum of GH¢4,159,010.38 to the plaintiff whose solicitors may be reached at…”.

But Mr Amidu has denied ever authorizing Mr Odro to sign any such letter.
