Albert Kan-Dapaah is National Security Minister

It is either the few very professional (but politically hawkish) people are being too partisan or completely do not know what they are talking about in their critique of Kan Dapaah’s candour.

Judicial oaths are not godly orders. They are not Biblical or Quranic injunctions that are even flouted with impunity by religious adherents. They are sworn and can be broken by the very fallible mortals who staff the bar and the bench.

It is a fact that there are some great independent-minded judges in Ghana. But we cannot pretend or suddenly be afraid to point out frankly and without mincing words that some people are also losing confidence in the judiciary, which is a major threat to national security.

To my mind, anyone who can’t understand this does not only lack analytical astuteness. Such a person is also a political infant, a nation wrecker and a great threat to the quest for strong institutions, national cohesion, consensual politics, peace, and political stability, without which there can be no development.

We cannot offer partisan opposition or defence for everything. There must be an elite consensus on many issues that we must agree never to disagree on, or else our drive towards the maturation of our democratisation processes would be stampeded at all times.
