“I didn’t want to wade into this because Martin Amidu is somebody I respect very much.

“He is my elder brother and I will never enter into any altercation with him. I just want to put on record that government did not sponsor Anas in the investigation he did, I want that to go on record,” President Mahama said in Tamale, Northern Region.

“It is true that government has sponsored some of Anas’ work,” Mr Mahama admitted, explaining: “When he did the work with customs, President Mills asked him to do it; when he did the work with COCOBOD, it was the Minister of Finance, Dr. Duffuor who asked him to do it.”

“This work with the judiciary,” he added: “We had nothing to do with it.”

“Government did not finance it nor sponsor it,” the President told party members up north.

Mr Amidu has insisted for the past one week that the investigation was done at the instance of the Government as a result of bad blood between the Executive and the Judiciary. The first denial of Government’s involvement in the judiciary exposé came from Minister of Communication Dr Edward Omane Boamah.
