A former Attorney General and Minister of Justice under ex-President Kufuor’s administration has slammed the legal team of the ruling National Democratic Congress, accusing them of being interested in practicing “law on radio”.

Lawyer Ayikoi Otoo expressed disappointment at the rapidity with which the NDC legal team go on radio to argue cases yet are found wanting at the law courts, stressing that the public is “gradually becoming tired of this radio law”.

Reacting to calls by Lawyer David Annan that the embattled NPP MP for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong, should be dealt with drastically for allegedly breaching the conditions of his bond of good behavior, Lawyer Ayikoi Otoo charged him to seek redress in court instead of screaming his voice hoarse on radio.

Speaking on OkayFM’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show, the former A-G pointed out that if Mr. David Annan thinks any crime has been committed, “as a lawyer he should strap his boot, wear his gown, put on his wig and go to court and prosecute that matter”.

“These are some of the things they do and lose cases; they go on radio and talk yet they are not very active in prosecuting cases in court. If he thinks that Ken has broken his bond of good behavior, my advice is that he should strap his boot, wear his gown and wig and go to court and go and prosecute that matter. Now we are getting fed up with this radio law, they are practicing law on radio and yet when they go to court…they go and lose; they’ve lost about 15 cases,” he stated.

Mr. Ayikoi Otoo, who is leading a group that has sued the Electoral Commission over the creation of 45 new constituencies, also stated that he is not surprised that the immediate past Attorney General, Martin Amidu had cause to complain about how members of the legal team were interfering with the official work of the A-G.

According to him, some of them are inexperienced in trial matters yet go on radio to argue cases.
