Speaking at the 2022 Liberty University Convocation on 5th October, 2022, the former President of the Republic of Ghana said, the Judiciary owes it a duty to deliver impartial justice to the people; an Ombudsman owes a duty of care to the people to investigate all issues of malfeasance.

Reiterating his position on the responsibility of the Police Service, he said, a police force should exist to serve the people and not rein terror on them.
