The Brong Ahafo regional President of the Ghana Bar Association, Lawyer Alfred Tuah Yeboah is optimistic to unseat the Member of Parliament for Sunyani East, Hon. Kwasi Ameyaw Cheremeh, in the party’s primaries scheduled for April 25 this year.
He said he was compelled by the call on him by the constituents to lead them in Parliament and turn around the fortunes of the constituency to contest the slot.
‘’I have served the New Patriotic Party well and it’s time to represent the people of Sunyani East in Parliament’’, the private legal practitioner told Kwabena Obeng Akrofi, host of Ark in the Morning on Wednesday.
Lawyer Tuah Yeboah said, as the NPP party believes in a democracy he is not worried any party mechanism or any other force in the party would prevent him from contesting the incumbent, who is the Majority Chief Whip in Parliament and has served the constituency as MP for eight years.
Touching on Judiciary and Justice delivery in Bono region and the country at large, the private legal practitioner said long hand writing by magistrates and judges is affecting the court system as it has caused delays in pronouncing judgments on cases.
He expressed regret about poor court facilities in the region as compared to those in the national capital and some other parts of the country and called for immediate intervention of the government to enhance the performance of the judiciary in the region.
Lawyer Tuah Yeboah called for proper accommodation for judges and magistrates in the region to ensure they operate in a free and fair environment.
