A Ghanaian attorney who is based in the United States of America, Professor Stephen Kweku Asare, has caused a massive stir on social media after he made a controversial call for the dissolving of the General Legal Council of Ghana of which the Chief Justice, Justice Kwesi Anin Yeboah is a member. Speaking on the Morning breakfast show of Asaase radio, Professor Stephen explained that we must consider dismantling the General Legal Council because according to him, that council has been the major and biggest impediment to the development of the Ghanaian law.
He further explained that this council had monopolized legal education and as such, the only solution to that problem is to send legal education back to the various universities that pass the accreditation test.
This got Ghanaians to massively react. Some blasted the US-based lawyer claiming that he was speaking out of sheer partisanship. This is because they believed that this was an age-long problem that has existed even under the NDC. Others also concluded that the Professor is just ignorant of law practices in Ghana
