President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has described recent attacks by former President John Dramani Mahama against the judiciary is unacceptable.
He said such attacks by the former president and other politicians confidence in the country’s justice system.
Former President John Mahama had slammed the judiciary, calling for the removal of the Chief Justice.
Reacting to these attacks, the President who was speaking at the 2022 Ghana Bar Conference in Ho, said the attacks were needless.
“There are some who have made it their political agenda to disparage systematically the image of the judiciary for selfish parochial partisan reasons,” he said.
He added that although he disagreed with the outcome of the 2013 election petition, he did not attack the judiciary.
On his part, the Attorney General, Godfred Dame also took Mr. Mahama to the cleaners over the same matter.
“It was great dismay and embarrassment that, I heard a person who has occupied the highest office of state that is the former President recently launched an unwarranted attack on the integrity of Ghana’s Judiciary.”
“I observed that, this was the latest instalment of systematic attack by the former President, albeit unjustified,” the Attorney General.
