The General Legal Council has once again rejected Elorm Aba Ababio, popularly referred to as Ama Governor, a social media personality and aspiring lawyer, from being called to the bar.
This occurs prior to the Call to the Bar ceremony, which has been slated for Friday, October 20, 2023, this year.
The judgment was made based on the Council’s examination of Ms. Elorm Ababio’s behavior prior to her application, according to a letter seen by 1Family Radio on October 18, 2023, and signed by Justice Cyra Pamela C. A. Koranteng (JA), the Judicial Secretary.
The General Legal Council had already indicated in a letter dated March 13, 2023, that they intended to monitor her behavior throughout this time.
The General Legal Council decided to reject Ms. Elorm Ababio’s application at a meeting on Tuesday, October 17, 2023, because of certain aspects of her public behavior that were observed before the application was submitted.
Below is a transcript of the letter.
