NDC takes on retired Appeals Court Judge Justice Isaac Douce over dragging Supreme Court in the mud threat to democracy comment.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has responded to comments made by Retired Appeals Court Judge, Justice Isaac Douce over Former President John Mahama’s description of the Judiciary of Ghana.

The former President while addressing the NDC’s legal team in a forum at Ada jabbed the judiciary by stating that the judiciary is biased and needs to be pudged under a new Chief Justice.

But his comments did not go down well with retired Appeals Court Judge Justice Douce who cautioned the Ex-President to be careful not to muddy the image of the judiciary before the public.

However, the NDC which sees nothing wrong with the Former President’s comments on the judiciary mounted a strong defense in his favor.

In a release signed by its General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the NDC refers to the reports of two institutions – CENTER for Democratic Governance (CDD) and the 2020 Moh Ibrahim report on Governance which both downgraded public confidence in the judicial system of Ghana.

The NDC again reminded Justice Douce about a concern raised by the National Security Coordinator in respect of justice delivery that it seems not to be happy about.

The NDC accused president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of appointing what it described as partisan judges to the supreme court bench.
