No institution can force to be respected
The Executive Director of the Media Foundation for West Africa, Sulemana Braimah has said no institution in the country can compel Ghanaians to respect it. "In the light of the foregoing, we have our client's instructions to demand, and we hereby so do that, as most responsible media institutions now do regarding incendiary and spiteful publications, you immediately. Pull or cause to be pulled down and cleared from your platforms, all statements and speeches which convey and/or insinuate hateful, spiteful, vengeful and incendiary communication against Justices of our client especially those hearing the election petition," the statement from the Judicial Service said. "What kind of statement will be deemed hateful and all these words that the letter put there because there were no examples of publications. If a media house thinks there's something wrong with what the judiciary is doing, criticisms are in order but it shouldn't be direct attacks on them."
