John Dramani Mahama, a former president of Ghana, has urged the judiciary to take a strong interest in looking into criminal cases and providing fair justice.
In a Facebook post on Sunday, the former president urged various organizations to improve the way their work was being done.
“A judiciary owes it a duty to deliver impartial justice to the people; an Ombudsman owes a duty of care to the people to investigate all issues of malfeasance; a police force should exist to serve the people and not rein terror on them.”
In the same post, he also said that the Electoral Commission (EC) should stop serving the interests of the current government and take responsibility for including citizens in the electoral processes.
An electoral commission owes a sacred duty of care to the people by making sure they participate in the electoral process and aren’t left out in the interest of the incumbent administration; an independent media owes it to the people to not only report the facts objectively, but to hold the current administration responsible.
