Justice William Atuguba, a former justice of the Supreme Court, has encouraged the public to stop denigrating President Edward Akufo-Addo, the father of the president, whom he characterized as a wise and trustworthy leader and lawyer.
Edward Akufo-Addo, a former Chief Justice and President, was a distinguished lawyer who upheld the rule of law and opposed despotism, according to Justice Atuguba; therefore, there was no reason for Ghanaians to be furious with him.
Justice Atuguba made this statement at a public lecture sponsored by Solidare Ghana and the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana.
The public lecture, which was monitored by 1Family Radio, was under the theme “Protecting Our Democracy. The role of the judiciary
“You find on social media people trying to turn their anger on Edward Akufo-Addo, but what is the joy of turning your anger on the president’s father? Let us be fair on all matters on all occasions,’’ he advised.
