  |   Ghana News

The petition for the removal of Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo, which was filed by Mr Mensah Thompson, the Executive Director of pressure group Alliance for Social Equity & Public Accountability (ASEPA), lacks legal basis and should be dismissed immediately, Kwaku Asare, a United States-based Ghanaian professor, has said.

Mr Thompson on Monday, 12 November petitioned President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to remove the Chief Justice from office on grounds of "stated incompetence."

Article 146 (6) of the 1992 Constitution states that if the president is petitioned for the removal of the Chief Justice, he shall, in consultation with the Council of State, appoint a committee consisting of two justices of the Supreme Court.
