I haven’t bribed a Judge before – Nana Addo

mq2tkxvjje_akufo_addo_relaxing“None of the cases I did were as the result of seeing a judge in chambers. It is important that people at the bar continue to uphold those principles, that at the end of the day, you get judgement based on the cogency of your argument, the skill of your advocate, his or her knowledge of the law and presentation and not because you go to see a judge in chambers, to pervert and subvert justice”

The above statement was from the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Nana Addo was speaking to the bribery scandal that has rocked Ghana’s judiciary, following an exposé of ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Addressing law students at the University of Cape Coast on Friday September 25, on the topic “40 Years Of Working With The Law; Can The Law Save The People?”, Nana Addo said throughout his many years of practicing law, he never had to bribe a judge.

“None of the cases I did were as the result of seeing a judge in chambers” he said.

Giving a general comment on the exposé, he said: “I must say that it is a sad and worrying time for all of us who have spent our lives promoting the rule of law and I believe it is imperative on us to be careful to handle things in a manner that will keep the dignity of our institutions and restore confidence in the judicial process.”
