The Attorney-General, Ms Gloria Akuffo has welcomed the nomination of Justice Anin Yeboah as the next Chief Justice, describing him as a judge of strong morals, ABC News  can report.

According to Ms Akuffo, apart from Justice Anin Yeboah’s astuteness in the law, his integrity is very untainted and for that matter, makes him suitable and “a good pick” for the enviable position.

Singing the praises of the part-time lecturer at the Ghana School of Law, she noted that Mr. Anin-Yeboah has worked long enough to be familiar with the demands of the position.

The A-G said she has “followed his career with interest and he is not only strong in the law but his morals are also strong.” She also expressed confidence that Justice Anin-Yeboah could stand up to the challenges of being Chief Justice, including the raging issues with admission to the Ghana School of Law.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo nominated Justice Anin Yeboah as the next Chief Justice to take over from Justice Sophia Akuffo who is retiring at the end of December 2019.

Justice Anin-Yeboah’s appointment is subject to parliamentary approval.

Appointed to the apex court in 2008, he is fourth longest-serving Justice of the Supreme Court. He is also the first male to be nominated to the position since George Kingsley Acquah died in office in 2007.
