Lawmaker for Madina Constituency, Francis Xavier Sosu has said the Minority in Parliament’s motion to censure the Attorney General, Godfred Dame may be affected by his recent order to the General Legal Council.
In a Facebook post, Mr Sosu said “If we don’t push the limits nothing will get done. This move will affect our motion for censure but what is key is that Ghanaians who care about the Law School admission wahala know that we stood by them and fought for them. Progress comes through struggles.”
The AG in a four (4) page letter addressed to the Chairman of the General Legal Council, the Attorney General highlighted what he says is the perception “of a lack of transparency and doubts about the integrity of the admission processes into the Ghana School of Law, created by the manner in which the admission processes were handled by the GLC in 2021, as well as the enormous public interest generated thereby”.
“These circumstances, in my respectful view, warrant a reconsideration of the decision not to admit the 499 candidates. I am aware that arrangements have been put in place already for commencement of the first year professional law course by candidates deemed to have passed the entrance examination for the 2021/2022 academic year” the Attorney General’s letter read.
The Minority had earlier presented a memorandum to the Speaker of Parliament that was seeking to pass vote of censure against Dame for failing to implement a resolution of Parliament to admit 499 law school students.
