Private Legal Practitioner who doubles as the Director of Legal Affairs, NDC, Abrahim Amaliba has described the position of the Attorney General on the admittance of the 499 law students into the Ghana School of Law as rather unfortunate. Speaking to the Host of A1radio’s Day Break Upper East Show Samuel Mbura, Mr. Amaliba described the posture of the Attorney General as against the best interest of the law students and all of Ghanaians alike.

“If you hear what the Attorney General of [President Nana] Akufo Addo is saying while Parliament, is in this trying time, trying to maneuver its way to ameliorate the situation, we have an Attorney General putting spokes into the work of Parliament. He is saying that Parliament has no power to do what it is doing,” he explained.

Mr. Amaliba expressed strong disaffection for the comments of President Nana Akufo Addo, when he spoke to the issue. Mr. Amaliba described the president’s knowledge on the issue as inadequate and inaccurate; the reason, he said, the president made those unguided statements. He said leadership has failed to critically deal with the current issue.

“I am shocked that the President addressing this matter at Peace FM just shut the door at the 499 [law students]. He [the President] even got it wrong by saying they failed. In fact the President does not follow the discourse so when it happens like that when he speaks, you can just forgive him. He is somebody who is not on top of issues. How can you describe the 499 [law students] as failures when they are not failures,” he quizzed.

Mr. Amaliba called for changes in the legal system to ensure that more interested individuals are able to gain education and certification to become lawyers to deal with the huge population-lawyer deficit.

“You just need to expand access and that is the only reason why these 499 [law students] are asked to stay back,” he stressed.
