Assistant Parish Priest at the Saint Martin De Porres Parish, Roland Adombire, has lambasted some lawyers, and the Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu, for attending a function he was invited to bless late.

The event in question was the inauguration of a district court in the Bolgatanga East District of the Upper East Region organized by the Judicial Service of Ghana, where the priest expressed disappointment over the delayed commencement of the program.

According to the priest, he was informed that the program would commence at 9 am, only to experience a delayed start at 12:40 p.m.

Father Adombire, who was perplexed by the late start of the program, attributed the economic challenges the country is currently facing to the similar lackadaisical attitude of duty-bearers.

“It is not only this program alone, but I have realized that we as people pay little attention to time management, and yet, we criticize political leaders for how they mismanage state resources and other things. Meanwhile, we are the problem. Just look at the time we are starting this program: 12:40 PM. After this, can we all go back to our various offices to work? No, so let us ask ourselves what contribution we have made today for the growth of the country.”

Father Adombire further called upon the lawyers to reflect on the adage that “justice delayed is justice denied.”

“You lawyers normally say justice delayed is justice denied, yet you decided to come at the time that you want. Are you people not denying justice? We need to change this attitude as Ghanaians for growth,” he said.

The priest emphasized the importance of time management as a fundamental pillar of development, asserting that its absence in the region and the country as a whole contributes to the prevailing economic hardships.

Responding to the priest’s critique, Justice Gbiel S. Suurbaareh, representing the Chief Justice, emphasized that such behavior does not align with the goals of nation-building.

He underscored the adverse impact of delays on the justice system, stating that judges may sometimes be compelled to strike out cases if they are deemed excessively delayed.
