Head of Pyschology at the University of Ghana, Professor Joseph Osafo has waded into discussions regarding recent utterances of Hon. Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka, Member of Parliament for Asawase, against the Supreme Court.
Hon. Muntaka alleged that a Justice of the Supreme Court tried to bribe a National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) to influence her in the election of a Speaker of Parliament.
This allegation by the MP has been classified as an indictment on the Supreme Court Justices.
He has therefore apologised for any harm done to the reputation and integrity of the Lord Justices of the Supreme Court and members of the Judiciary.
”I therefore wish to retract same and apologise for the harm done to the image and reputation of my Lord Justices of the Supreme Court and the Judiciary as a whole. Based upon good counsel, I have also decided to let sleeping dogs lie and will consequently refrain from any further public commentary on the matter which, as I have indicated was originally reported to me by a female colleague Parliamentarian.
“It is my fervent prayer that the existing historic cordial relations between the legislature and the judiciary will not be affected by this incident but will continue to grow in the interest of the country,” portions of his release sighted by Peacefmonline.com read.
Professor Joseph Osafo has also called on the Judiciary and the general public to forgive Hon. Muntaka.
To him, Hon. Muntaka shouldn’t be crucified any longer because he has accepted his fault and apologized.
“Let’s leave the matter if he has retracted his comments because to err is human,” he said during Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo” Monday morning.
