Ministers, MPs bribing their way through law school – Maurice Ampaw
Private legal practitioner, Maurice Ampaw is claiming that Ministers of State and Members of Parliament (MP) who are pursing furthers studies at the Ghana Law School bribe their way through.
“Ministers, MPs and other top officials who want to become lawyers but would not quit their jobs pay bribes and obtain the pass marks through ways and means, since they don’t get the time to attend lectures”, he revealed on Kumasi-based Angel FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
According to him, some lecturers are cashing on the situation to make more money.
“Some of the lecturers are poor so they take “hundred million, hundred million, hundred” from the “ministers, MPs and other rich students during the examination period and simply pass them”, he disclosed.
He was commenting on some possible reasons for the mass failure that rocked the Ghana School of Law that has prompted the General Legal Council to set up a committee to investigate the matter.
The outspoken lawyer also revealed how “prostitution” is rife at the Ghana School of Law and how the advent of social media is taking a toll on serious academic work in the school.
“The girls have become prostitutes and slay queens, who wear mini skirts and prefer to chat on social media and take selfies while lectures are ongoing, because they know they will surely pass even if they do not learn”, he asserted.
