“We shouldn’t see judges as we should see Members of Parliament as persons who will always tow one’s lane and that is it”, the private legal practitioner said.

Lawyer Yaw Oppong who spoke on Joy FM’s Saturday weekly news analysis show Newsfile said “it is too much danger to see delivery of judges as political”.
