I Agree With The NDC This Time And The General Legal Council Must Listen – Paul Adom Otchere

Yesterday the biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress held a press conference to address certain issues. Dominant of them is the accusations that have been levelled against the Chief Justice, Anin Yeboah. It can be recalled that one lawyer Afrifa has accused the Chief Justice of taking bribe to the tune of $5 million. According to the NDC, The Chief Justice has to step aside as the General Legal Council decides what happens next.

On Good Evening Ghana, Paul Adom Otchere who is pro-NPP sided with the NDC on some issues raised at press conference. Though Paul feels that what is happening might not be true and just purported lies, he was of the view that the General Legal Council who will be hearing the case need to broadcast the hearing on live TV for all to hear.

Secondly, Paul agreed with the NDC that the Chief Justice has to step aside from the General Legal Council which he heads so that someone else will sit on the case and hear the case out.

“I agree with the NDC because what they said agrees with a Latin maxim, nobody is a judge in his own case. The NDC press conference called for that today. we add our voice to the call that the Learned Chief Justice not to be a judge in a matter he has interest in. given the high public interest in this matter. 

Given the sensitivity nature of this matter, I believe it is necessary that the General Legal Council must allow a televised event so that people can see the witness, hear them and see the way proceedings are going so that by the time the verdict comes, everybody is satisfied. We beg the General Legal Council to televise all important hearing” Paul Adom explained.

It is yet to be seen whether what he and the NDC are asking for will be realized. Ghanaians are keenly waiting to see and hear what will happen in this case.
