Parliament to pass Justice Sophia Akuffo today

Supreme Court Judge Justice Sophia Akuffo is expected to be approved today by a unanimous decision by MPs after sailing through her vetting session on Friday, June 16, 2017.



The over five-hour long vetting process saw Justice Akuffo answer questions on the challenges within the country’s legal system, the regulations on lawyers touting themselves on social media, the status and relevance of the Ghana Law School, practice of mob justice, external interference of the judiciary among others.

Justice Akuffo, who has been at the apex court for over two decades, if approved will take over from her ladyship Georgina Theodora Wood, who retired on June 8, 2017, after 10 years as Chief Justice and 47 years in public service.

Although Parliament does not usually sit on Mondays, today’s session is to enable members to consider the nomination of the Chief Justice and hasten the process to have her assume office as soon as possible.
