Justice Sophia Akuffo will be next Chief Justice

JOY NEWS can confirm that President Akufo-Addo has now firmly settled on Justice Sophia Akuffo as Ghana’s next Chief Justice following last night’s cabinet meeting.

After frank discussions with his cabinet last night at which other names such as Justice Jones Dotse and Anim Yeboah came up, the President made a strong case for Madam Sophia Akuffo.

It is now a done deal and it is just a matter of time before the President outdoors Sophia Akuffo as his choice for Chief Justice.

JOY NEWS is also learning that the President will at midday today make a major announcement.

Sophia A.B. Akuffo has been a Judge of the Supreme Court of Ghana for the past two decades.

Sophia Akuffo trained as a lawyer under Nana Akufo-Addo who had her Masters in Law (LLM) from the Havard University in the United States.

She has been a member of the Governing Committee of the Commonwealth Judicial Education Institute and the Chairperson of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Task Force.

In January 2006 she was elected one of the first judges of the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights initially elected for two years, she was subsequently re-elected until 2014 and is at present serving as Vice-President of the Court.

She has written The Application of Information & Communication Technology in the Judicial Process – the Ghanaian Experience, a presentation to the African Judicial Network Ghana (2002).

One of her famous cases is when she presided over the Montie 3 in 2016.

Current Chief Justice, Georgina Theodora Wood is leaving office in June after 10 years service as the head of the third arm of government, the Judiciary.
