Stop attacking voices of conscience – Sosu hits back at ‘useless’ GBA

The MP for Madina, Mr. Francis-Xavier Sosu, has descended o the leadership of the Ghana Bar Association, saying their biases are reducing the Association to another useless institution in the country.

GBA had written to scold the MP over some comments made against Judges,suggesting that some judges are partisan in their work and ought to be treated as politicians.

In response to the association, Mr. Sosu said “the leadership’s release shows the extent to which they are politically affiliated and biased as leaders of the Ghana Bar Association.

“It is very sad that the leadership of the GBA which was established by the Constitution of Ghana and historically known to be the champions of Rule of Law, Accountability and Social Justice has reduced itself to yet another useless institution of our democratic process in these days and times,” he also said.

Mr. Sosu said he expected the association to demand more accountability from judges.

“Instead of joining the clarion call to stop our judges from becoming political judges in order to guarantee our democracy, the leadership of the GBA is needlessly attacking the voice of conscience that speaks truth though it hurts badly.”

The MP further said the GBA had deliberately misconstrued his comments on judges.
