Political Science lecturer at the University of Ghana has sent a simple message to the Ghana Bar Association. It can be recalled that last week in an address to the GBA at their annual conference, Godfred Dame chastised former President, John Mahama for certain comments he made against the Judiciary. Many have lambasted the Attorney General for using such a conference to criticize the former president.
Well, Ransford Gyampo has also added his voice to those calls. According to the vocal UTAG Secretary, the GBA was once one of the respected institutions in the country. He lamented how an institution which was once counted as pro-Democratic has suddenly turned into a puppet institution. Prof Gyampo mentioned that now the institution has lost respect and now find it difficult to get the needed attention when they speak.
“It is no more a constituency and a force to reckon with” Ransford Gyampo said. Indeed, many Ghanaians have criticized the Ghana Bar Association as toothless and also hit hard at the Judiciary for how they have performed in recent matters. Some say the government has hijacked these institutions and rendered them powerless.
