Former President John Dramani Ma­hama has accused the New Patri­otic Party (NPP) government of ap­pointing cronies to the judiciary.

Mr Mahama claimed that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has deliberately appointed the most judges to the bench in order to have people who will do his bidding when he is out of office.

The NDC flagbearer said the move by the President is an attempt to avoid being held ac­countable when he leaves office.

Addressing the closing cer­emony of the 3rd Annual Lawyers Conference of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Saturday, he alleged that, “Currently, the judiciary is packed with NPP-inclined judges because this government has carried out a deliberate policy of putting their people onto the bench.”
