Renowned media personality, Nana Aba Anamoah, has expressed surprise at the silence of the Ghana Bar Association on pressing national issues.

She noted that despite several controversial issues that arose during the administration of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the association remained silent, failing to publicly share its views to hold authorities accountable.

Nana Aba said she found it astonishing that the judiciary had remained silent, especially given the scandals and corruption-related issues that have recently surfaced in the country.

“The Ghana Bar Association has been so silent on this issue. I didn’t think they wanted to be so silent,” she commented on X.

His remarks coincide with the growing prevalence of corruption-related issues involving government officials.

Among the controversial issues is the money laundering case involving former Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Dapaah, which is being investigated by authorities.

In addition, there has been a plan to sell 60% of the shares of the Social Security and National Insurance Fund (SSNIT) in some hotels, to a company owned by the Minister of Food and Agriculture, Bryan Acheampong.

These and other concerns have drawn criticism from political analysts and various institutions, who denounced the actions of government officials.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Bar Association, which traditionally speaks out on national issues, is yet to address these issues.
