President Akufo-Addo has described as unwarranted and unmeritorious a petition seeking the removal of the Chief Justice (CJ), Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, from office.

The Chief Justice has been in the news lately following allegations by private legal practitioner, Kwasi Afrifa that he had demanded a $5million bribe to deliver a favorable judgment in a case involving his (Afrifa’s) client.

The CJ has since denied the allegations and asked the Police CID to probe the matter.

ASEPA, the Civil Society Organisation which petitioned the President for the CJ’s removal from office, contended that the CJ is unfit to hold office, based on the allegation by Lawyer Kwasi Afrifa.
