The Chief Justice on Wednesday, January 13, 2020 has in a press statement indicated it is taking steps to engage the MP to assist in investigations to establish the facts of the matter so that it can appropriately be dealt with.
The Member of Parliament for Asawasi , Muntaka Mohammed, on Sunday, January 10, 2020, during an interview on Joynews, alleged that, prior to the election of the Speaker of Parliament, a Supreme Court Judge, attempted bribing a female member of Parliament from the National Democratic Congress to influence her to vote for Professor Mike Oquaye.
This allegation casts a huge dent on the image of the Judiciary and the Chief Justice deems it as a matter of urgency, investigate the facts clear doubts in the minds of Ghanaians.
This is not the first time the Judiciary has been entangled with allegations of corruption and anytime it has happened, leadership of the Judiciary has taken steps to investigate and punish those culpable.
It is expected that the right things are done to assuage the situation as soon as possible as there were no timelines indicated in the press release.
Will keep you posted on any update on the matter.
