Why Kwame A-Plus Drags Attorney General and 1 other to the Supreme Court

In his capacity as a citizen and public interest advocate of the Republic of Ghana, Mr. Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as Kwame A-Plus has sued the Attorney General of the Republic and Mr. Maxwell Opoku-Agyeman.

In a Writ dated 9th March 2022, the popular Highlife musician and political activist have revoked the original jurisdiction of the apex court to seek proper interpretation into portions of the Constitution.

 A-Plus is seeking amongst other reliefs a declaration of the Attorney General’s recommendation of Mr. Opoku-Agyeman for consideration as a Justice of the Court of Appeal unconstitutional.

According to A-Plus in the Writ, the second defendant, Mr. Maxwell Opoku-Agyeman is not qualified for such consideration because, he has been found to have illegally admitted ten (10) unqualified persons into the Ghana School of Law, by a Committee of inquiry. In the view of Plaintiff, the second defendant does not meet the constitutional threshold which requires a Justice of the Appeals Court to be a “person of high moral character and proven integrity” because of the aforementioned act.

The suit is therefore also seeking an Order to strike out the name of 2nd Defendant from the list of persons recommended for consideration as Justices of the Appeals Court.
