"He Must Step Aside For Investigations To Be Carried Out If This Allegation Is True"-Netizens To CJ

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) activist, Yayra Koku has posted a letter purporting to come from Lawyer Kwasi Afrifa's O & A Legal Consult. The summary of the letter is that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Anim Yeboah has been accused of demanding US$5,000,000.00 to favor a petitioner.

The Chief Justice advised the Petitioner to take an initial amount of GH¢300,000.00 from Lawyer Kwasi Afrifa after he was promised a successful outcome of his case. This has become necessary because the petitioner has been advised to engaged Lawyer Akoto Ampaw as a solicitor to continue the case before the Supreme Court. The letter further explained that the Supreme Court Judge had already received USD$500,000.00 of the alleged US$5,000,000.00 bribe.

This has propelled some Ghanaians to react that if this is true then the Chief Justice must step down for thorough investigations to be carried out. They argued that this is the same Supreme Court Justice who was accused of ruling the 2020 election petition in favor of his appointer, the President of the land, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Check out reactions from some Ghanaians on this issue:

A Facebook user known as Kafui Yao Doh reacted that "The chief justice must step aside for investigations into this matter".

Another Facebook user known as "If u deprived the children of the Lord Justice, n they cried unto the Lord, he will disgrace u at his own time. Isn't the same chief Justice who was demoted as FIFA chairman for the disciplinary committee? God is our judge".

Again, a Facebook Eric Boamah said that "No wonder. During the petition, I listened to what the NPP was saying outside. And in court, it would be the same reasons the court gives as the basis of its judgment. Dito-dito. Sad".
