Ama Governor misses out on call to the Bar again
Meanwhile, 946 potential lawyers missed out on being called. One of the applicants who noticeably missed out was YouTuber Elorm Ama Governor-Ababio.
She was denied a call to the Bar again just days before the enrollment ceremony. The General Legal Council cited behaviour in public.
Governor had been denied in 2022 after a petition accused her of bad conduct. The petitioner was one Hajia Siduri, who Ama Governor says cannot be traced.
Ghanaian broadcaster and lawyer Richard Dela Sky denied reports that he was behind the petition when leaked photos showed his phone number on the petition.
