Akufo-Addo: Wood valuable asset

President Nana Akufo-Addo has praised Georgina Theodora Wood and described her as a very important inclusion to the Council of State.

Mr Akufo-Addo, who swore in Mrs Wood as a member of the Council of State on Tuesday, June 20, said he had “no doubt that former Chief Justice is going to be a very valuable member of the body”.

Mr Akufo-Addo thanked her for her role as Chief Justice and indicated that much would be expected of her in her new role.

“Thank you very much for the work that you have already been doing in dealing with the various appointments and also for the fact-finding mission that you decided to undertake over this galamsey issue,” he added.

Her appointment is in accordance with Article 89(2)(a)(i) which mandates a former Chief Justice to be a member of the advisory body.

Mrs Wood joins the other members who were sworn into office on Monday 27 February as she was, at the time, a serving Chief Justice.

The Council of State is enjoined by Article 89 of Ghana’s 1992 Constitution to counsel the President in the performance of his functions.

The other appointees include Juabenhene Nana Otuo Siriboe II, Sam Okudzeto, Nana Kofi Obiri Egyir II, Stanley Adjiri Blankson, Mrs Alberta Cudjoe, Alhaji Aminu Amadu, Dr Margaret Amoakohene, Alhaji Sahanun Mogtar, Mrs Georgina Kusi, Alhaji Sule Yiremiah, and Mr Paa Kofi Ansong.

The rest, in accordance with Article 89(2)(a)(ii) and (iii) are General J.B. Danquah, a former Chief of Defence Staff of the Armed Forces, and Nana Owusu Nsiah, a former Inspector General of Police. The President of the National House of Chiefs, Togbe Afede XIV, is an ex-officio member of the Council in furtherance of Article 89(2)(b).
