Parliament unanimously approved the appointment of new Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo Monday, clearing the way for her to be sworn into office.

President Nana Akufo-Addo nominated the long time Supreme Court Justice to replace Georgina Wood, who stepped down after ten years as CJ.

Akuffo was vetted by Parliament last week, and at today’s sitting her appointment was fully approved.
