Yesterday saw the Supreme Court headed by Justice Yaw Appau deliver a ruling on a case brought to it by the Conveners of the Fix the Country demonstrators. The ruling meant that the Police could not place a permanent injunction on the protesters. Many have applauded the verdict delivered.
On ‘Good Evening Ghana’, Paul Adom Otchere was of full praise for the Supreme Court. He noted that the victory might mean nothing but a clear sign that Ghana’s Judiciary is not as biased as people think. He charged Ghanaians to clear their minds that the Supreme Court is biased because the ruling showed that the Attorney General and government can also lose in court.
What happened in court is a pyrrhic victory. The other point I want to make is where are those talking about the culture of silence and a one sided Supreme Court that is not independent? Don’t go to hide or pretend you haven’t seen this. Those who have been saying that the Attorney General goes to court and always wins, those who are saying there is a court of silence, fix the country has won a Supreme Court case.
Fix the country has gone to that same court and won a judgement against the Attorney General. We should all be matured and know that when and you have lost a matter, don’t be quick to judge. It’s unfair to do that. It is unintellectual to do that. Today, the Supreme court has delivered a judgement against the government. That is a victory for democracy. I will be watching Twitter and Facebook and will be watching to see what people will say. Will people talk about this? Paul asked
