NDC Youth Organizer Says Judiciary Should Focus on Public Mistrust, Not Media Censorship

National Youth Organizer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) George Opare Addo has taken a swipe at the judges sitting on the 2020 election petition and the Judicial Service over their attempts to gag the people of Ghana on matters concerning justice in the country, GhanaWeb reported on Sunday, Feb. 28.

According to Addo, the Judiciary is being unfair and if not checked will come back to haunt the country in the future. He noted that since the Judiciary released its statement, it has been met with contempt, an indication that the people of Ghana do not welcome their attempts to look superior and above reproach.

“We must be very concerned if this is the level of mistrust the people have towards the justice system,” Addo said.

Addo said the issue should not be made partisan, but should be addressed because the country will be treading on a dangerous path and the earlier the chief justice realizes this and apologizes, the better.

“The way Ghanaians are speaking up in the aftermath of the unpopular statement by the judicial service speaks volumes of what they think of our judiciary,” he said. “We must be very concerned if this is the level of mistrust the people have towards the justice system.”

He added: “The statement certainly doesn’t score right with Ghanaians and as a matter of urgency, the chief justice must take a second look at the statement. At the very least, he must try and win Ghanaians to their side by withdrawing it. This development is not healthy for the country and I foresee a much bigger problem in the future if this is not addressed with dispatch. Let’s not make this about the NDC or NPP. We are treading a very dangerous path.”
