The Minister-dseignatw for Justice and Attorney General, Godfred Odame seems to roll on many commentary in the public space about how he managed to impress the vetting committee of parliament this evening. He's among a few whose remarks to some probes from the minority caucus had been received relatively calmly, me without reproach.
Undoubtedly the youngest Minister for Justice and Attorney General, ever if confirmed, in Ghana's history, had been candid in his opinion about legal matters and the politics that lies therein. Issues regarding the Agyapa Royalties Deal, the PDS Concession, the LGBT, and among others had been topical in his interaction with the committee.
Many including the renowned Professor Kwaku Azar, Franklin Cudjoe, Know Essuman, and others had made queit some positive remarks about his delivery.
Even for someone as Franklin Cudjoe who initially crticised him severely, is out pleading that the vetting committee approves his nomination. He finds him brilliant, and beleive he could change the tides for a better legal system in Ghana.
"Sincerely, I plead with tbe Appointments Committee to approve the AG designate," he wrote on Twitter.
And for Prof. Kwaku Azar, the AG nominee just made his day on a matter he had counts advocated for- and that is about allowing all law faculties to provide some professional law courses. He saw much wisdom in Mr. Odame's argument and with that comes to pass and not remain a rhetoric.
"Finally, common sense has prevailed. My brother, Godfred Dame, has announced that there is a draft bill that will allow all law faculties to provide the “professional” law course.
"I will add that there must be a transitional provision that allows all LLB graduates who have been denied access to Makola to access this education, whether privately, at one of the faculties or even online, so that they can take the Bar exam."
