President John Mahama has sworn in five new Court of Appeal judges, charging them to dispense justice in fairness to all people and uphold the rule of law.
Mabel Yamoa Agyeman, a Ghanaian-born former Chief Justice of The Gambia, has been sworn into office as a Court of Appeal Judge by President John Mahama.
The rest of the judges are Justice L.L. Mensah, Justice Henry Kwofie, Board chair of SADA Justice Angelina Domakyaareh and Justice G.S. Suurbaareh.
Mr. Mahama tasked the judges to ensure fairness to all in their adjudication of disputes.
“You have a huge responsibility of maintaining and preserving justice in our society,” President Mahama told the newly appointed Court of Appeal judges. He said they are required to be “sober in terms of temperament and in terms of delivering of justice”.
The president used the occasion to remind them that it is their first obligation to dispense justice to all persons fairly irrespective of their background.
