The Office of the Attorney General and Ministry of Justice has submitted names of likely candidates for Justices of the Court of Appeal role to the Chief Justice for consideration.
A statement from the office said the move is in accordance with Article 144 (3) of the Constitution.
Eleven names have been presented to the Chief Justice for consideration.
The selected individuals include Her Ladyship Afia Serwaa Botwe, His Lordship Kweku Ackah-Boafo, Her Ladyship Jennifer Abena Dazie, Her Ladyship Gifty Agyei-Addo, among others.
In 2019, President Nana Akufo-Addo swore into office, 45 justices of the High Court and Court of Appeals, on the advice of the Judicial Council, at a ceremony at the Jubilee House, the seat of the Nation’s presidency.
The President, at the time, said the 45 justices “have been considered eminently fit and qualified for the position of Justices of the High Court and Court of Appeal, respectively, and are deemed to have the independence of mind and impartiality of spirit to hold these high offices.”
