Member of Parliament for Asawase Muntaka Mubarak, has said the current Attorney General, Godfred Dame is overly political.
In an interview with TV3, Muntaka accused Dame of suppressing the weak rather than fighting for them.
“As an Attorney General, his responsibility is to protect the weakest. You hear him make such statements as, it is not a right, it is a privilege. Well, privilege for the few? For people like him? So, we are putting a motion that, in that same year admission, this 2021, there were people who didn’t even write the exams but they have been given concessional admission because they are the privileged few.
“That cannot be right, we can’t create society like that. His posture is giving me an impression that in his view, he thinks seeking justice may not be a right, it will be a privilege that is seen in the Opuni matter even at the Supreme Court, re-empaneling, going for a review, meeting a judge who is supposed to sit on a panel. Attorney general that often is supposed to be the one that protects the weakest in our society, not to intimidate the innocent ones.
“I think that the way he is carrying himself if we are not careful to put a break on him he may end up being one of the worst Attorney Generals we have because he seems to be too political and he forgets the mandate of government.”
