President Akufo-Addo has sworn in 21 justices to the High Court with a call on them to be transparent and efficient in the delivery of Justice in order to build confidence within society.
He noted that a corrupt and incompetent judge is a danger to the public interest and Judicial administration. The President, therefore, told justices made up of 12 men and nine women, to be honest, show integrity, and above all be knowledgeable of the law.
At a ceremony at the Jubilee House, the President asked the justices to know their cases and ensure that their judgments are based on law. Bright Ntramah has filed this report.
The new Appeals Court Justices are: Justices Kwame Polley, William Abpiah Twumasi, Baah Forson Agyapong, Marian Affoh, Nana Brew, and Abena Anponsah Buansi.
The rest are Justices Ellen Lordina Serwaa Mirehu, Priscilla Dapaah Mireku, Alexander Oworae, Joyce Boahen, Edward Twum and Gwendolyn Millicent Owusu. The others are Justices Rosemary Baah Tosu, Frederick Kwabena Twumasi, Adedaide Abui Keddey, Harry Aheampong-Opoku, Kenneth Edem Kudjordjie, John-Mark Nuku Alifo, Kwesi Adjenim-Boateng, George Aikins Ampiah-Bonney and Marie-Louise Simmons.
