Blame the On-going ills in Ghana on William Atuguba (JSC)

?Is the Rawlings’ so-called celebrated Supreme Court judge, William Atuguba, still

walking down the streets of Accra a proud man? I hope he perpetually bows down his

head drowned in shame until he kicks the bucket.?Every civilized person the world

over that watched the live telecast of the Supreme Court proceedings on Election

2012 petition could conveniently predict the outcome of the case - going in favour

of the petitioners – Nana Akufo Addo, Dr Bawumia and Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey. With all

the lies told by Kwadwo Afari Gyan, the Electoral Commissioner, and Johnson Asiedu

Nketiah, the General Secretary of NDC, while in the witness box, William Atuguba

colluding with four other Supreme Court judges still found credibility in their

arguments that were pregnant with lies and insanities.?I have written copiously

about Atuguba but I shall not spare him the rod at any window of opportunity. I do

not personally value him as any credible Supreme Court

judge but a "galamsey" judge seeking a quick buck. As shameless as he is, he was

rather accusing politicians of being "galamsey" politicians ready to escape from

the country once they have fomented upheaval in the country by their selfish and

myopic aspirations.?Was it not Atuguba himself who went into hiding after

delivering that corrupt verdict on a landmark case? Was he not the same one to flee

Ghana to the USA like a terrified dog scurrying from danger with his tail tucked

in-between his legs? ?If he was in the UK, he would have been put on trial, found

guilty of perverting the course of justice, sacked from his job and imprisoned long

ago. There is a judge currently on trial in London. She is one Constance

Briscoe,56. "She has been suspended from her job and is on trial accused of lying

to police about how she allegedly helped Ms Pryce reveal to the press that she took

speeding points for Mr Huhne in 2003. Briscoe, who has been suspended since

her arrest in October 2012, denies three counts of intending to pervert the course

of public justice".

?In the civilized Whiteman’s land, Atuguba and his likes would not even be High

Court judges let alone, becoming Supreme Court judges. This conclusion is from the

way they presented their views in their written verdict statements. Atuguba’s

demeanour throughout the hearing was appalling, partial and disgraceful.?I shall be

coming hard on him, revealing the dangers his verdict presents in any future general

elections. He makes only rogues like Rawlings proud but not discerning Ghanaians

like Rockson Adofo who has established how dangerous and corrupt his views are.?He

had the chance to rescue Ghana and the entire Africa from perpetration and

perpetuation of corruption by the government, but he chose otherwise, to wallow in

corruption himself. If he had delivered the correct verdict following the

credibility of submitted evidential documents as seen on live telecast, he would

have from that day nailed corruption and abuse of power by our Ghanaian

and African political leaders in the coffin. He rather chose to let the golden

opportunity slip through his porous hands, as corrupt as he is himself.?All the

on-going financial problems, economic woes, and the mismanagement of the affairs of

the nation by John Mahama must be blamed on William Atuguba and his other four

musketeers. They know themselves. Shame on them! Rockson Adofo?
