I have been following the circus with regard to the appointment of a Chancellor and Chief Justice for this country and I can only conclude that this country is doomed if this is what passes for good governance in this blighted land.
The President chooses a Chancellor who reportedly has not disposed of his backlog cases in a foreign land, the opposition leader rejects his nominee, the president replies that the ball is now in the opposition leader’s court and he is waiting on a counter proposal from the opposition leader, and the opposition leader says it is for the President to invite him to continue the discussion.
Come on, give me a break! Is this what passes for good governance in this country? This is abdication of duty. No wonder this country cannot progress.
I write this missive to appeal to both the President and the opposition leader to allow good sense to prevail and appoint Justice Yonette Cummings Edwards as the Chancellor and Justice Roxane George as the Chief Justice, of this country. It will be a first for this country that we will have two women to head the judiciary. What a momentous occasion that will be. It will be a victory for all women in this country.
I do not know these ladies personally, but they seem to be two wonderful and lovely ladies who will bring a breath of fresh air to the judiciary and will dispense justice in a fair and transparent manner.
So come on Mr. President and Opposition Leader, surprise the people of this country; put partisan political interests aside and create history by appointing these two ladies. If you don’t, history will judge both of you harshly.
