I’m Upset That Muntaka has Defamed All Supreme Court Judges With His Bribery Claim – Fmr. Chief Justice

Published

on


Former Chief Justice of Ghana Sophia Akuffo has expressed her frustrations over bribery allegations made against a Supreme Court judge by Asawase legislator, Muntaka Mubarak.

Muntaka had claimed that a Supreme Court judge made an offer through a phone conversation to a member of the NDC caucus in Parliament to vote for former Speaker Mike Oquaye during the Speakership contest.

Speaking on the issue, Mrs Akufo told Joy FM, “I am upset at the very thought that, that kind of accusation will be made. I don’t like accusations like that. It is like throwing a bucket of dirty water at people and you were aiming at somebody but you just threw it and it dirties everybody.

“There are 17 people you have defamed in that causal manner but you are talking about only one person so there are 16 people who have been wrongly done by.”

Meanwhile Muntaka Mubarak has assured of his readiness to back his claim with evidence if need be.

NDC To Head To Supreme Court For Interpretation Over Bagbin’s Declaration Of NPP And Fomena MP As Majority Group

Published

on


Legal team of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Ashanti region is not happy that Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, declared the NPP caucus and Fomena MP as a “majority group” in Parliament, after the Fomena MP officially noticed the House he would align with the NPP to do business.

The legal brains of the party in Ashanti region say they are preparing to go to the Supreme Court for interpretation on whether the Speaker’s declaration is valid or not.

 But they believe it is a mistake for the Speaker to have declared the NPP wing together with the independent Fomena MP, Andrew Asiamah Amoako, as majority in the 8th Parliament of the 4th Republic.

Leading member of the legal team, Lawyer Evans Amankwaa is of the view that the Speaker of Parliament erred in such declaration.  

Speaking on Akoma Fm’s Wonsom on January 16, Lawyer Amankwaa told host Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin that “the NDC will head to the Supreme Court for further and better interpretation to clear all doubts”.

He maintained that according to the 1992 Constitution, “declaring a majority in this hung parliament is a mistake”.

He cited Article 95 of the 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana, saying that “once there is parity in number of members from both caucuses it is clear in black and white in the constitution that the Fomena MP, who is now the 2nd Deputy Speaker cannot join the NPP side therefore there is no majority in parliament”.
