Ghana needs just 9 Supreme Court Justices
Kwabena Agyei Agyapong, a previous General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said that the nation has such a large number of Supreme Court Justices.
He said for a little nation like Ghana, there ought to be a cap on the quantity of judges for the zenith court.
In a meeting on Accra based GHOne TV, he said the quantity of judges shouldn’t surpass 9 Supreme Court Justices.
“There ought to be a cap”, he said.
As of now, there are sixteen Justices of the Supreme Court including the Chief Justice.
In March, Kwabena Agyapong revealed his expectations to challenge for the flagbearership position of the NPP in 2024.
Talking in a meeting with Daily Graphic, Mr. Agyapong said: “In 2007, I was the most youthful of the 17 applicants, so it isn’t as though I haven’t done it previously”.
“Thus, I won’t preclude running for the Presidential essential yet the main thing to me presently is the manner by which well we do as an administration and how we can follow through on the order that the Ghanaian public have given us.”
“We shouldn’t underestimate that command. We ought to regard that order and work to the advantage of the oversimplification of Ghanaians. We should put Ghana first”.
Right now, the leaders for the opening are Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and the Minister of Trade and Industry (MOTI), Mr Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen.
