Mr. Kwame Awuah- Darko former Managing Director of Bulk Oil, Storage and Transportation (BOST) acknowledged government invests a lot in the Judiciary. He, however, laments the poor cannot access justice due to high fees. “The country spends 1.5 [billion] to 2 billion cedis a year on our judicial administrative services but when you take the Ghana Bar Association scale of fees, you’ll realise 99% of Ghanaians cannot access legal services. So taxpayers including cocoa farmers, market women, etc contribute to the administration of Justice but cannot access it,” he observed.
