It Shouldn't Be A Lip Service; We Need Action- Afia Pokua Tells Godfred Dame

Host of United Television's Critical Issues, Afia Pokuaa, popularly known as Vim Lady has cautioned the Minister-designate for Justice and Attorney General, Godfred Dame to shade lip-servicing in the discharge of his duties [if he is approved] by Parliament's Appointment Committee. According to Afia Pokuaa, there is much Ghanaians expect to be done in legal and judicial service in the country, most especially in the area of Legal Aid Services which had remained impoverished for years.


The broadcaster on today's 'Critical Issues' Show recounted that Mr. Dame did promise to rebrand and resource the Legal Aid to support the delivery of pro-bono services to persons who cannot afford private lawyers in their litigations. As means of reminding him of the check herself, the media, and practitioners in the legal profession would put on him, Afia Pokuaa charged Mr. Dame to honour that promise and leave an embellished impression in the minds of Ghanaians and ultimately a mark in history of legal aid services.


She stressed that the confidence reposed in him by the President and the people of Ghana must manifest in his execution of his mandate.


"I think the Attorney General, Godfred Dame spoke at length about legal aid. I must be frank, it shouldn't be a lip-service. We need action. We want to see you developing the Legal Aid Services. Bring about the change we desire. Give them a new office.


"Let the lawyers have a decent pay. Resource them. At least by the time you complete your service to that Ministry, everyone would attest to the change you brought. Like they say, do this and collect your name," she elaborated.


Afia Pokuaa made these remarks just when she was about folding up on the show, as she expressed her deepest appreciation to Lawyer Martin Kpebu who had been a loyal panelist to the show. She indicated that him and Francis Xavier Sosu had been remarkably supporting of the legal aid service in the country, and as much needs to be commended.


She indicated that their selfless contribution is enough testament of how instrumental the legal aid department could be when they are resourced.
