Praises have been pouring in for Chief Justice nominee Justice Sophia Akuffo after her performance during her vetting on Friday.

Justice Akuffo was subjected to six hours of questioning from MPs on the Appointment’s Commitment on a wide range of issues concerning the judiciary and justice delivery in the country.

Hohoe MP, Bernice Adiku Heloo, said she did well, saying she is very hopeful Justice Sophia tenure will see more development.

“That was a five-hour grilling and I must say she did very well. She has been able to tell us all the plans that she has for her staff, for her administration, for students, and for the general legal practice in Ghana. So we are very hopeful that her tenure will see more development and progress in the judiciary," she told Accra-based Class FM.

Private legal practitioner, Mr Kofi Bentil, said the Chief Justice was impressive, adding that the president made a good choice in nominating her.

“The Chief Justice showed a lot of stamina and it was good,” Mr Bentil to Joy FM. “I come away very impressed with the CJ and think the President made a good choice.”

A member of the National Democratic Congress legal team, Victor Kojoga Adawudu, praised her for demonstrating "competence" at the vetting.

"She showed that she knows her job or the office she is going to and that she is ready to do the job," he said.

Economist Joe Jackson praised Justice Akuffo's legal prowess adding that she is fit for the job.

“I think she was a good candidate and knowledgeable. When you have a good candidate you have respect for, you put away partisanship that sometimes comes along with such process. You will get this result and make all of us proud,” he told TV3's New Day
