More troubles unfolding: Ghanaian Facebook user describes Anin-Yeboah as a "THIEF JUSTICE" (Photo)

Amidst the economic hardship Ghana is being confronted with, ever since the Coronavirus pandemic came into the scene, we are also faced with a lot of controversies in the social, legal and public spaces.

Freedom of speech and expressions as clearly enshrined in the 1992 Constitution of the Fourth Republic of Ghana appears to be creating some of "divide" and conflict of ideas, despite its numerous advantages and significant impacts on the developmental processes of the country.

We all cannot always share the same opinion on a particular subject manner, but I think if we critically apply a sense of wisdom, respect and love, we can surely be victorious over any national problem.

I must admit that, our reputation as a peaceful nation does not only rest in our hearts and minds, but is more clearly manifested in how tolerant and united we are in sharing our opinions or views on certain issues in the country.

And even if we disagree with each other at some point, we all have that feeling that together, we have won or will surely win.

In constrast to the above, some of us feel so sentimental each time we are sharing their views on a particular issue of national interest. We may have a valid point, but how we make the submission may make it all wrong if we do not apply a high level of wisdom, decency and morality.

The most open environment in Ghana's democracy is politics. We can all attest to the fact that, most of our leaders, in the quest of making their suggestions or recommendations known to the public, end up attacking one personality or another.

This, to a very large extent breeds conflicts and indecency in the political institution.

But I think, with time, we will clean it up, for the betterment of the entire citizenry.

However, the legal environment, particularly the judicial system is more sensitive than we can imagine.

Ideally, it is supposed to be the most trusted, firm, respected, reliable, credible and independent system or environment in the country.

It does give everyone the right and freedom everyone to share their point of view on legal issues worth discussing, provided one has an in-depth knowledge on the subject matter. This is the subjective nature of that sector.

After the 2021 Election Petition ruling by His Lordship Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah in Supreme Court of Ghana, a lot of people have raised concerns and criticisms.

Roland Walker, a Ghanaian Journalist and TV3 News Anchor shared a story on his Facebook page yesterday, June 4, 2021, pertaining to a question an activist threw at Justice Anin-Yeboah.

In response to the story shared by Roland, a Facebook user has angrily described the Chief Justice as a "Thief Justice".

Could the Facebook user also be in trouble for saying this?

Meanwhile, other Facebook users shared their views on the story as well.

Below are some of the reactions from other Ghanaians:
