THE Goaso Kroye Kuo of Accra and their counterparts in Kumasi have congratulated Mr Justice Paul Baffoe-Bonnie on his assumption of office as a justice of the Supreme Court.
The two groups said by his appointment, Mr Baffoe-Bonnie had brought a lot of honour to Goaso and the entire Ahafo area.
Mr Justice Baffoe-Bonnie, 52, perhaps the youngest justice of the Supreme Court today, is a native of Goaso, where he was born and bred.
Major Kofi Awuah (retd), the Vice-Chairman of the Goaso Kroye Kuo of Accra, said “we from Goaso feel proud that for the first time in the history of the town, a son of the land has risen to this enviable position”.
He said Justice Baffoe-Bonnie had demonstrated throughout his period at the bench that he was someone always ready to deliver justice without fear or favour.
“It is not surprising therefore that his professionalism received the attention of the President and the nation resulting in his current position,” he said.
He was confident that the new justice of the Supreme Court would continue to perform creditably in the years ahead.
The Goaso group in Kumasi traced the history of Justice Baffoe-Bonnie from his elementary school days to the University of Ghana and said he exhibited exceptional brilliance.
It was therefore not surprising that he had risen to the top in his chosen profession.
The group emphasised that it was not so easy to get to the top of the bench, and said this showed that Mr Baffoe-Bonnie had been a brilliant justice.
They prayed that God would continue to give him the wisdom that would enable him to perform his duties to the best of his ability.
