Having had a successful demonstration on Wednesday, October 20th to register their displeasure following what they described as an introduction of a “kangaroo rule with a deliberate intention to deny them admission to pursue their professional educational career at the Ghana School of Law”, lead convener Tony Baah, of the aggrieved 499 law students has rubbished President Akufo-Addo’s claim.

The president, on one of his ‘Thank you tour’ in the Greater Accra region, had remarked that there was no space to admit the 499 students to the Ghana Law School.

But speaking on Day Break Upper East Show on A1 Radio, Mr. Baah explained that even though the president’s statement vindicates them that they have passed the legal examination, they however disagree with his assertion that there is no accommodation to admit them.

“The President established that we did not fail and that’s the best thing, because initially when the results came out they said only 790 had passed and therefore all of us have failed, so at least what we have been saying that we passed have been vindicated by the President’s statement that we passed” he stated.

According to him, “if we passed the exam, then space cannot be used as an excuse to ask us to go home, the examination that we have paid, written, and passed. So we are still in talks with the leadership of this country to find a better solution to this problem, it cannot be said that you write the exam in this country and then only be told that, there is no space and therefore you should go home “.

In a related development, a Private Legal Practitioner, Abraham Amaliba has noted that the General Legal Council has Lawyers but it baffles him why they cannot solve this challenge that happens almost every year.

Mr. Amaliba stated that “there is a General Legal Council and I am surprised, the General Legal Council is composed of some of the finest brains in this country, why this matter cannot be resolved and every year we keep coming to it. It’s a mystery to me”.

He, therefore, proposed to the government to build more structures or make the universities autonomous, so that they could be able to run the two-year professional course.
