A retired Court of Appeal Judge, Justice Henrrietta Abban on Tuesday shed tears uncontrollably after a grimy picture was painted about how corruption has engulfed the judiciary.

Justice Abban  famously jailed fORMER gnpc Boss Tsatsu Tsikata for causing financila loss to the state in 2008,shed tears during the inauguration of “Urgent call to Repentance” message.


The message was envisioned by an 86-year old lady, Madam Regina Eva Addae, and directed to lead a crusade for personal, church and nation repentance in order to have a revived and restored life for the next generation.

There would be disastrous consequences arising from the blatant disregard of God’s word and the acceptance of greed, selfishness, deceit, lies and corruption in high and low places, Justice Abban said as she continued crying.

Chairman of the Christian Council of Ghana, Right Reverend Professor  Emmanuel Martey expressed disappointment over factionalism and commercialisation of churches that had clouded the propagation of the truth message from God.

He said commercialisation of the churches is driven by greed, desire to get rich quick, and the application of the gift of eloquence, in place of a true gospel calling, to falsify the message of the Bible.

 Allegation of corruption has hit the country’s judiciary, sparking public outrage and drawing high-flying personalities including former presidents Jerry John Rawlings and John Agyekum Kufuor to express worry about its impact on the society.

 Out of the 34 higher and lower court judges sited in the video footage of investigative journalists, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, 22 have been suspended by the Judicial Council.
