Political analyst: It’s unjustified to attack Mahama over his comments on judiciary

Mahama had said it would take a new Chief Justice to lead the process to repair what he claims is the "badly dented image" of Ghana's judiciary for people to regain trust in the system

Political and communications marketing strategist, Dr Tutu Boahene has said that the comments by former president John Mahama about the judiciary should be seen as one aimed at helping the country’s democratic system rather than an unjustified attack.

In light of his latest remarks, Dr Tutu Boahene also critisised the Attorney General, Godfred Dame for taking on the former president.

Dr Tutu Boahen stated in an interview with Asaase News that while such comments are intended to shape the judiciary, they could also damage the institution’s reputation, particularly given that the institution plays a significant role in the country’s governance structure.

The Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, who was speaking at the Ghana Bar Association (GBA) Annual Conference in Ho in the Volta Region, said the attack by the former president will rather dent the image of the judiciary. 

He said the situation may threaten the peace and well-being of the country.
