A Chief policy analyst at the Ghana Institute of Public Policy Mr Charles Wereko-Brobby has urged Ghanaians to reject calls for a public enquiry into a $5 million bribery allegation made against the Chief Justice, Kwesi Anin-Yeboah.
According to him, such demands from the NDC while investigations remain ongoing is a political talk. He said since the said allegation isn’t coming from the chief in the suit but his lawyer with whom they have an issue, it cannot be taken seriously.
“Good governance dictates that the Chief Justice steps aside during the pendency of the investigations by the Judicial Service relative to the issue of alleged misconduct on his part as a Supreme Court Judge. The Chief Justice cannot be a judge in his own cause, hence cannot set up a committee to investigate allegations of misconduct against himself.”
The General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah at a press conference argued it was necessary for the Chief justice to step aside, so the investigation is not compromised.
