US based Ghanaian legal practitioner professor Kwaku Asare popularly known as Kweku Azar has said that it will be interesting to see if the CJ will refer Tsatsu to the GLC for saying that “In this last petition, I think as we all saw virtually in all the decisions, the Chief Justice will write an opinion and everybody was on board.”
He said that lawyers are footsoldiers of the Constitution and must be free to defend the Constitution as vigorously as possible subject only to the court rules, none of which bars them from expressing any opinion they want on an adjudicated case.
In fact, law journals will be boring if all lawyers and commentators could do was to praise court opinions or to shy away from questioning the independence of the courts.
Further, Kwaku Azar said no constitution will be adequately protected if the law regulator is allowed to create a monopolist provider of legal education and to also serve as the monopolist monitor of what those who are allowed to practice can say in and out of the courtrooms.
“The GLC is a moribund regulator that has stifled the growth of the law and justice in this country.
Dr. Akuritingayine must be freed, the CJ must focus on improving justice delivery, the GLC must be scrapped, and GOGO must be launched” he said
