President of Ghana, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo has appointed a private legal practitioner, lawyer Eric Ansah Ankomah as High Court judge, yesterday, Monday, July 18.
A number of his screenshots are going round since his appointments, with many people expressing doubt whether the new High Court judge can do justice when faced with political decisions and judgment calls as a High Court Judge.
The private legal practitioner made a series of several political posts running over the past couple of years showing clearly he is a sympathizer of Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Yesterday, Monday, 18th July 2022, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo inducted into office ten (10) Justices of the High Court for the 5th time since he assumed office.
In addition to Eric Ansah Ankomah, her Honour Mercy Adei Kotei, Mrs. Cynthia Martinson, Dr. Bridget Kafui Antonio-Apedzi, Ms. Nabeela Naeema Wahab, His Honour Ebenezer Osei-Darko, His Honour Bernard Bentil, His Honour Alexander Graham, Mr. George Kwame Gyan-Kontoh, Mr. Richard Apietu were sworn in by the President.
Akufo-Addo said the 10 were “eminently fit and qualified for the position of Justices of the High Court, and have the impartiality of mind and independence of spirit necessary to hold this high office”
In the case of the Sunyani-based private legal practitioner who was with Enso Nyame Ye Chambers before his elevation by President Akufo-Addo as a Judge, many say he is most likely to be a biased judge on political matters and has shown same by his social media history.
In the attached screenshots, the lawyer left no doubt where stood politically, sometimes directly mocking opposition candidate John Mahama over his manifesto promises
FixTheCountry activists may have a problem with thus Judge in particular, when some of his posts appeared to he directed at them for asking the government to fix the country.
