The Africa Initiative for Governance (AIG) has reiterated the need for the judicially to contribute to economic growth and better life for all across the globe.
The AIG Visiting Fellow of Practice at the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford, Mrs. Georgina Wood, who delivered a public lecture titled Rule of Law, the Promotion of Sustainable Development and Ghana?s Experience: A View From the Bench at the school, said: ?One key lesson I have learnt is that the imperatives of promoting a rule of law based governance system, anchored on a free, fair and impartial administration of justice cannot be overemphasised?, said Justice Wood, whois immediate past Chief Justice of Ghana.
?The moderating influence of the Judiciary on the more political branches is the basis of constitutional stability and balance, providing the needed conducive environment for sound economic growth and a better life for all.?
Also speaking, Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government, Ngaire Woods, said:?We are honoured to host Justice Wood at the Blavatnik School?, said Professor. ?We are grateful to her for sharing her outstanding experience of the Justice System in Ghana with our students and faculty.?
