Host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV, Paul Adom-Otchere, has criticized Ghana Law students for what he describes as pitching the opposition against the government with their demonstration.
According to him, the demonstration which ended up in the residence of the former president John Dramani Mahama’s was a politically sensitive move.
Mr Adom-Otchere noted that the demonstrators were blackmailing government with votes, something which happens in an indisciplined society.
“Students demonstrate and it is very politically sensitive, they pitch the opposition against the government...so if the government is not listening to us, we go to the opposition and they should remember that next year is an election year. It’s an indisciplined society that blackmails its leaders with votes,” he stated on Good Evening Ghana.
He advised the National Association of Law Students to lobby the Ghana Bar Association (GBA) and the General Legal Council (GLC) to either change the rules or amend the rule that accommodates law students into the Ghana School of Law.
“I get worried when I see students demonstrating on the streets and say that they have the right to be members of the GBA...we have the rights to be called to the Bar...no one has the right to be called to the Bar because the GBA and GLC decide the standards they want...” he reiterated.
In other news, depositors and customers of the 23 savings and loans companies and finance houses whose licenses were revoked by the central bank in August 2019 have been given an extension of deadline to file for their claims.
According to the receiver, Eric Nana Nipah, the lifeline became necessary because he realized some depositors of these collapsed institutions are yet to submit their proof of debt forms.
He said in a statement that the depositors now have up to Friday, October 18, 2019, to submit their PoDs for validation.
