Mahama Saying Akufo Addo Has Packed The Court With Strong NPP Affiliates Is Sad, Baseless – Lawyer Fires (VIDEO)1 min read
Former President John Dramani Mahama has accused President Akufo-Addo’s government of appointing judges with a strong affinity for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to the Judiciary.
Addressing the ceremony of the 3rd Annual Lawyers Conference of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mahama claimed that this strategy is designed to shield them from accountability when they are no longer in power. He estimated that there are currently around 80 such judges in the system, with the number expected to increase beyond 100 soon.
But a Legal Luminary, Twumasi Ankrah has said on the Ama Ghana Morning Show on Kumasi based Time FM that Mahama’s statement is baseless.
He said Mahama encouraging members of the NDC to consider pursuing careers in the legal profession, specifically on the bench, to balance the numbers suggesting that this is the only way to correct the perceived imbalance in the judiciary is sad and unfortunate.
