Attorney-General Gloria Akuffo has backed Chief Justice nominee, Justice Anin-Yeboah.

“I think he is a good pick,” she told JoyNews’ Kwesi Parker Wilson in an interview minutes after his appointment was announced, Thursday.

Extolling the Supreme Court judge, Madam Akuffo said Justice Anin-Yeboah has worked long enough to be familiar with the demands of the position.

The Attorney-General said she has “followed his career with interest and he is not only strong in the law but his morals are also strong.”

She also expressed confidence that Justice Anin-Yeboah could stand up to the challenges of being Chief Justice, including the raging issues with admission to the Ghana School of Law.

He is a part-time lecturer in Civil Procedure and the Ghana Legal System at the Law School.

Justice Anin-Yeaboah’s appointment is subject to parliamentary approval.
