Did the Supreme Court miss something in Ex parte Anas?
A few lucky ones who were able to scale the security barricade to catch a glimpse of history unfolding on that momentous March day say the President ‘forgot’ to ask his hosts to demonstrate, at least, how a case was filed electronically.
Harrassing the living through the dead: Are the courts complicit?
As for the ubiquitous ‘one-week’ celebrations, the least said about it, the better. Traditional authorities in Ghana will not stop it because they amass wealth from it when their own relatives die. The Christian religious authorities will not pray for it to stop because it is their cash cow. Nowadays, ‘one week’ (which is traditionally a matter of custom) is held with a church service. Ethnic groups who once-upon-a-time were content with simple one-step burial/funeral rites have joined the ‘one-week’ celebration craze.
Angels Still Exist In This World: A Note of Gratitude
Are you a lecturer? Are you a judge? Ah, don’t you teach anywhere at all? Is this your first book? How did you fix a date to launch a book when the book had not been printed? I answered all the questions but the last. I have sworn to carry the answer to that question into my grave.
When did Asante customary law on enstoolment of chiefs change?
By Asante customary law and usage, the Asantehene does not play any role in the nomination, election and installation of a paramount chief. A newly-installed paramount chief is introduced to the Asantehene only as a formality. It is for this reason that one finds it utterly perplexing that His Majesty, the Asantehene, could make such a profound statement - that he is the kingmaker of every stool in Asanteman. The statement has no basis in both statutory and customary law.
A tale of two awards: The victors, the vanquished and the lessons learnt from Ghana and Nigeria’s recent arbitration cases

“The two faces of Natural Justice: Ex parte Dorgbadzi in retrospect”
Before the ‘valedictory’ decision, we thought we had reached a stage in our national lives where judges could go to sleep, secure in the knowledge that their busts will not adorn the frontage of the Supreme Court Building. But now that we know that any judge’s Record Books, Things Books, Microsoft Teams virtual hearing recordings and even the form and mode of making the entries in the books will be the subject-matter of ‘trials’ at the Supreme Court, one can only imagine the chill flowing down the spine of their Worships, Honours, Ladyships and Lordships.
General Legal Council versus Social Media: Weeping over fake news?
As the saying goes, those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. In the same vein, public institutions of doubtful legal existence must do well not to try the patience of citizens.
It’s Kulendi; it’s Torkornoo: It’s a shame.
History teaches us that, the choice of a Chief Justice is not a game of draught to be played under the ‘Odum’ tree in the Village Square. It is also not an Easter masquerade show to be screened to the public through the lenses of the media.
Chill! Not everything a court says matters.
All the parts of a judgment given by a court may seem at first glance to have the same force and effect. But that is not the case because a judgment may contain obiter dictum that are statements made in passing by the judge and do not have any binding effect on lower courts as precedent.
A red letter to our soldiers and us
The soldiers and their civilian collaborations must bow their heads in shame. If citizens have learned to respect them under constitutional rule, the least they can do is to return the pleasure.
