President Akuffo Addo’s desire to make Ghana’s judiciary system, a pro New Patriotic Party packed institution continues unabated. The president has appointed three more persons to the supreme court to augment his agenda.
A Court of Appeal Judge Justice Clemence J. Honyenuga has been appointed to the bench of the Supreme Court by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo ClassFMonline.com reports.
Two others, Yoni Kulendi and Justice Issifu Omoro Tanko Amadu have also been appointed to the apex court to replace Justices Julius Ansah, Nasiru Sulemana Gbadegbe and Anthony Alfred Bennin who are due for retirement this year.
In December 2019, President Akufo-Addo swore into office Justices Mariama Owusu, Avril Lovelace-Johnson and Justice Gertrude Araba Esaaba Torkornoo to fill three vacancies at the Supreme Court.
Justice Honyenuga was recently condemned by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Volta Region for singing the praises of the President and advocating a second term for him contrary to the Judicial Code of Conduct.
The NDC Secretariat called on the Judicial Council and the General Legal Council to take judicial notice of Justice Honyenuga’s transgressions and take appropriate action but nothing has been heard of it.
