What Waterz Yidana said about about Ama Governor's case
According to Waterz Yidana, he is by no means defending the alleged uncouth behavior of Ama Governor but it appears to him that there is an element of unfairness in how the lady has been treated.
"It's true that every profession has its ethics and principles, so is the legal profession, but my question is, was she warned for the first and second times before this draconian action was taken against her? If no, then it is immoral, if not utterly insensitive, to prevent her from becoming a lawyer, be it temporary or permanent," he said in a Facebook post.

Explaining his stance to YEN.com.gh, Waterz further added:
"Ama Governor spent six long years studying Law and making sure she passed every exam. Why would you suddenly discount all her efforts on the basis of an alleged claim of moral decadence? If an action was to be taken, it should have been done earlier. Why wait till the last hour to punish her without recourse to the time, money and energy the young lady invested to fulfill her dream of becoming a lawyer?
