Deputy Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame has raised controversy by stating that lawyer Philip Addison is a better ace lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata.
Explaining his point, Mr Dame said comparing the qualities of the two lawyers, he can state categorically that Mr Addison is way ahead of Mr Tsikata.
“To be a good lawyer, there are a number of qualities that one must exude; one is courage, honesty, wits and a good sense of judgment. Philip Addison, I have the opportunity of understudying him, he was my first master at Akufo-Addo Prempeh and Co.

“I have had the opportunity of seeing Mr. Tsatsu Tsikata on his feet, and I have also have the opportunity of comparing their previous practices and experiences. And I think that upon a careful analysis of the qualities I have indicated, I think Mr. Addison stands tall in my humble view,” Mr. Dame said on Starr FM Wednesday.
Tsatsu Tsikata is a lawyer with many years of experience and was the lawyer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2012 during the election petition case.
He first came into the national spotlight when he got a first class law degree at age 18 at the University of Ghana law faculty.
Philip Addison on the other hand came to the limelight when he acted as the lawyer for the petitioners, that is Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP in the election petition case.
The discussions over who was the best among the two respected lawyers started right after the eight-month long election petition between the NDC and NPP at the Supreme Court in 2012.
