President John Dramani Mahama and his government deserve commendation for not blocking the judicial corruption scandal video from being shown, despite its damning revelations.
Dr Ezenator Agyeman Rawlings, a National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary aspirant for Korle Klottey Constituency in Accra, has stated.
Dr. Ezenator who is a daughter of the NDC Founder, former President Jerry John Rawlings, believed President Mahama or the state could have used the national security or the courts to block the three-hour long documentary from premiering in Accra, but because he has been committed to help cleanse the judiciary he allowed it.
“It takes a government that is daring to allow such a thing to go public,” the parliamentary aspirant made the revelation on Tuesday.
President Mahama and his government are bold, they could have used some kind of injunction or block it. It’s a bold step. I believe it is the right thing to do to correct the system.”
Thirty-four judges in the high and lower courts in the country are being investigated for allegedly taking bribes to pervert the course justice.
Seven of them, who are high court justices have been suspended by President Mahama, while 22 belonging to the lower court have been suspended by the Chief Justice, Theodora Georgina Wood.
