‘There Is No Space For Them’ – Prez Akuffo-Addo To 499 Law Students

'There Is No Space For Them' - Prez Akuffo-Addo To 499 Law Students

This is because there’s no space at the Ghana School of Law to contain them, President Akufo-Addo said.

He noted that the situation is rather unfortunate as the problem has been a persisting one.

“For the time being, there’s no space in the Law School for them, and this is a problem. There are several others before them who unfortunately fell into the same pit. It may be that this group has decided to be more vocal than their predecessors,” he said.

The President explained that it is not in the country’s best interest to keep the gates of the Ghana School of Law closed.

He stated that more lawyers were needed to ensure that the rule of law was maintained for the country’s development.

“I myself, I think that idea of more and more lawyers in the system is good for the health of the nation. If we want a country that is governed by the rule of law, it means that we need to have lawyers in virtually all aspects of our national life guiding the development of our country so that the rule of law really makes sense,” he said.

He is, however, hopeful that a solution to the problem would be realised by next year.

According to him, it is reasonable that Ghanaians expect him to find a solution to the problem because he’s a celebrated Ghanaian lawyer.

“I think it’s a decent, reasonable expectation; I will not run away from it. I think it’s a reasonable expectation to see that this is a good moment for these matters to be resolved, and all I can say is that God willing, by the time I come back here the next year, substantial progress will be made in trying to deal with this.

“It’s unfortunate, I can’t pretend that this is a happy coincidence for me at all, on the contrary, I’m very disturbed by it, and I’m hoping that soon the cooperation of the various stakeholders, the Ghana Legal Council, the Chief Justice himself, Attorney General and myself, we’ll all find a solution to this situation,” he said.
