Ghana backs ECOWAS Court Of Justice

Mr. Martin A.B.K Amidu, Minister for Justice and Attorney-General, has pledged Ghana’s support to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Court of Justice and its development as an impartial adjudicator for member states.

He noted that when people in member states had hope in the Court, there would be peace due to the consolation that when all else failed, there was a higher body that could impartially adjudicate disputes. 

Mr. Amidu said this when a delegation from the ECOWAS Court of Justice, led by its President, Madam Justice Nana Awa Daboya, paid a courtesy call on him in Accra.    

The visit was to inform and invite him to the Court’s impending 10th anniversary celebrations.    

Mr. Amidu stated that Ghana had played an important role in the formation of ECOWAS and was committed to see that it achieved its purpose, adding that there could not be integration in the West African sub-region until the people saw themselves as one.    

This, he said, could be achieved through the Court.    

“With the transition from an ECOWAS of nations to an ECOWAS of people, there is the need for an institution which would be the leader in making the people feel secure in the knowledge that their rights would be protected. Justice is the foundation of everything,” he said.    

Madam Justice Daboya said the 10th Anniversary Celebrations would be held in Abuja, Nigeria, from March 21- March 25, 2011.    

She said the Anniversary would include representatives of Regional Courts in Africa, Justices of Superior Courts in member states as well as their Heads of State, who would deliberate on issues bordering on their legal systems and courts.    

The delegation is in Accra to attend an international conference of the ECOWAS Court on the theme, “Strategies for Strengthening the Effectiveness of the ECOWAS Court of Justice”, from February 22- February 25, 2011.

  1. BIG Mistake by western power

    Muammar Algaddafi is very much right let the so called international community (west) live Libya for Libyans they are not helping the issue at all instead they are worsen the matter more. Bombing all the military planes, barracks and hospitals, schools, resident, killing both Libyans soldiers and civilians, supporting terrorist/rebels. To bring down an independent government, this is totally wrong. The world leaders are out of their mind looking only for oil to drink without knowing the dangers of this pressure to collapse Gaddafi regime. Not possible in sha Allah.
    Sidi Mohammed (Ag) Ahmed Zaidan

  2. Title: The whole world is not with MUAMMAR GADDAFI But God (S.H.T.) is with him

    MUAMMAR GADDAFI the best and most respected president of AFRICA May God continue to guard, save and protect the well blessed president of Libya and the entire people of Libya. When Gaddafi COLLAPSE, Libya collapse when Libya collapse Africa COLLAPSE. The US and UN wanted to do Libya what they did to Iraq and Afghanistan, killing them and looting their Oil resource. By God Grace that will never happen to Libya, God is with them.

    Libya is not like Egypt or Tunisia, Libya is a rich country and the people of Libya enjoy their natural resources. No African country that its people enjoy their natural resource (Oil) like Libya. Everything is free for the citizens, Eg: Education, health care, Accommodation Vehicles, Electricity, Water, Farms, Salary. And much more…

    So you see if Gaddafi goes Libya is finished. May Allah Guard and protect MUAMMAR GADDAFI from his enemies and the enemies of Libya progress.
    I call on all the great people of Libya don’t allowed the international community, and Aljazeera false report to separate you. You see what happened to Iraq, Afghanistan, and others always killing, raped, and …

    Aljazeera showing some part of Egypt protest and claim is in Libya. US have already sanctions Libya. But with all this if God say no nobody say yes. Let MUAMMAR GADDAFI Enemies stay long and see that nothing In sha- Allah will happen to him, except what come from Allah. (S.H.T.)

    Western Power UN/US does nothing to President Laurent Gbagbo Loser to democratically Elected President Winner Alhassan Watara. But Laurent Gbagbo is still ruling. Because Ivory Coast has no Oil. So no tension from the western leaders. They only need Libya Oil.

    The so called Western Powers are using Al-Qaida to fight Libya. And to use all means of force to remove the great Leader of Libya Muammar Algaddafi. But no way for them died and live are in the hands of Almightily Allah.

    Libya is one people, one nation, one religion,
    Sidi Mohammed (Ag) Ahmed Zaidan

    The western nation has no any tactics or mission accept killing all the Libyans from the air by bombing them for the sake of OIL. Shame on all the Arab Leagues they support the international community to war the Greater Leader Muammar Algaddafi and Libyans. Let them get ready by the time they finish with Libya the will turn to Arab League too, and finish them one by one. Mahmoud Jibril a former minister of national planning and strategic in Libya …and now the head of Terrorists/rebel, betray Muammar Gaddafi and sold his mother land Libya to west for oil.
    Sidi Mohammed (Ag) Ahmed Zaidan.
    May Allah in his efficient mercy give Muammar Gaddafi a total victory over his enemies and the enemies of Libya.

  4. Please ECOWAS Nation and African Union Support Gaddafi Regime, Africa is ONE!
    May Allah Guard, save and protect Muammar Gaddafi from his enemies and the enemies of Libya progress. Gaddafi Is ever the greatest and best leader in Africa whom leads by good example no president is active & productive like him in the whole of Africa; he brought progress and stability, peace and unity and growth and development in the economy of Libya. Free education, free heath care, free accommodation, and free entitlement to all Libyans, He brought good governance. Free Water, Free electric city, free housing, and free vehicles, for Libyan citizens. Free agricultural land and machinery equipment for farming. Good road network and transportation everything is available and in good standard. What else do you need the people of Libya that is not there! Remember only God is perfect.

    Muammar Gaddafi is the most respected leader in the whole world, the best of the best. I wish we have good leaders like him Africa would have been like Europe.
    Please I call on all the people of the great Libya to remember the past when Muammar Gaddafi came to power, poverty and stagnation sickness and diseases social and anti social problems full Libya. But now Libya is considered as the best develop country in Africa. Because Muammar Gaddafi did very well in making Libya a good country to all the citizens to enjoy their natural resources. May Almightily Allah continue to bless, protect and Guard Muammar Gaddafi.
    Libyans will definitely regret it if Col. Muammar Gaddafi is out of power
    Please Libyans live Muammar Gaddafi alone.
    Please the outside world and int. media live Muammar Gaddafi alone.
    Please the USA/UN and the International media live Muammar Gaddafi alone. To solve his problem, within his nation by his self. He has been a good leader for Decades, the Libyans a lack of nothing; they have everything you think of. Gaddafi is the best leader in Africa. The Libyan Oil belongs to the people of Libya not the government. So you see he loves his people and his country. Please the Libyan people don’t listen to foreignness to divide you and loot your oil and wealth; Libya is one country, one people, and one religion.
    Long life Muammar Gaddafi long life Libya,
    Sidi Mohammed (Ag) Ahmed Zaidan
    We love and support Gaddafi forever, the ever green leader
