Social Commentator and Former Operations Manager, Charles Owusu, says until the term of office of Anin Yeboah expires, he is not going anywhere.
Expressing his disappointment in the for Former President John Dramani Mahama and The National Democratic Congress(NDC) for their seeming dislike for the Chief Justice, the recently ordained man of God said the Chief justice will continue whether the NDC and the former president likes it or not.
Speaking on Peace Fm flagship show, Kokrokoo, hosted by Kwami Sefa Kayi alias Chairman General, Mr. Owusu slammed the NDC and the former president for the insensitive comment against the judiciary and the chief justice.
According to him “it appears the NDC as a party have an issue with the chief Justice, Anin Yeboah” adding that, “whether they like it or not, until his term of office expire, he remains the chief Justice.”
It will be recalled that, former President Mahama addressing a conference on August 28, 2022 raised concerns about the Chief Justice and the Judiciary as a whole.
Among others, the former president is reported to have said, “so badly has the image of our judiciary deteriorated that many of our citizenry openly make mockery of our justice system and of our justices. The phrase ‘go to court’ is these days met with derisive laughter instead of hope that one will truly get justice if he went to the court.”
“If people are not poking fun about politics and inducement being used to sway the hand of justice in the Lower Courts then it is poking fun and making statements about the 7:0 of the unanimous FC, verdicts which mostly involve cases of a political nature in our Supreme court, this is an unfortunate but serious development,” he added.
Taking on the Chief Justice, the former president said, it may take a new Justice to repair the broken image of the Judiciary insinuating the current Chief Justice is not fit to lead any such process.
“Unfortunately, we have no hope that the current leadership of our judiciary can lead such a process of change, we can only hope that the new Chief Justice will lead the process to repair the broken image that our judiciary has acquired over the last few years.”
