Myjoyonline.com has procured a list of persons on the Roll of Lawyers in Ghana which seems to authenticate that, 2012 torch bearer for the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo was called to the Bar in Ghana, in the year 1975.
The document contains names of all lawyers called to the Bar in Ghana from 1877- September, 2005. It states the year a lawyer was first called to the Bar or admitted abroad and the dates they were enrolled in Ghana.
The NPP flagbearer has been sued by a former Justice at the Supreme Court, Frank Kpegah for alleged impersonation.
Justice Kpegah is claiming information available to him indicates that Nana Akufo-Addo was never called to the Ghana Bar but “rather one W.E.D Akufo-Addo - who was called to the middle temple in the United Kingdom on the 22nd of July, 1971 and on the roll of lawyers in Ghana as No.1190.
However, the document obtained by Myjoyonline.com has one “W.A.D akufo-Addo (M)” on Page 26, as having been called to the Bar on July 22, 1971 and enrolled on July 8, 1975 as No. 1190.
See below, the relevant page of the document which has the details of ‘W.A.D akufo-Addo’.
