I Call For An End To The Opportunistic Misinterpretation And Misapplication Of Article 94(2)(a)

US-based Ghanaian legal practitioner, Prof. Kwaku Asare, popularly known as Kwaku Azar has called on the on the ministry of justice to be more concentrated on upholding the legislation code of the country which is the constitution rather than any other quest.

On his maiden appearance on Asasse FM, he called upon the ministry of Justice to be more focused on defending the Constitution, rather than partisan interests. 

He decried the slow pace of Ghana's legal development and called for the dissolution of the moribund GLC as well as a serious reform of legal education. 

Consistent with my pledge to stay away from controversy, he called for an end to the opportunistic misinterpretation and misapplication of Article 94(2)(a). 

Alternatively, where the judiciary fails in the performance of its interpretive function, as it did in the speech crimes era, then Parliament should repeal the article when it returns at the end of May.
