“I have no doubt that Ms Justice Sophia Akuffo will be a worthy successor to Chief Justice Wood and uphold jealously the independence of the judiciary “, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said.
Introducing her as his choice for the position of Chief Justice, to take over from Mrs Justice Georgina Theodora Wood at the Flagstaff House Friday afternoon, President Akufo-Addo said he expects discipline, fairness and integrity to be the hallmark of the tenure of new CJ.
