President John Mahama, has nominated the Sole Commissioner on Judgment Debts, Justice Yaw Appau, one of the most diligent judges at the Court of Appeal to the highest court of the land, the Supreme Court.
The President, has also nominated former General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Gabriel Pwamang, an equally brainy lawyer, to the Supreme Court.
Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Adjaho, announced this in Parliament, yesterday morning and referred the matter to the Appointments Committee of Parliament to
invite the nominees and vet them.
It is after vetting that the House, will determine whether the nominees qualify to be appointed to the Supreme Court.
Justice Appau is currently a Court of Appeal judge.
He was appointed chairman of the Commission investigating judgment debts payments by President Mahama when the issue of questionable judgment and settlement payments became topical.
Justice Appau, is reputed to be a no-nonsense person and this showed up pretty much during the sittings of the Judgment Debt Commission, which investigated
inordinate payments to organisations and individuals on the basis of claims against the state.
Mr. Pwamang, is a respected private legal practitioner and is Managing Partner at Pwamang & Associates.
