This is why Popular Youtuber Ama Governor won’t be called to the Bar

Meet Elorm Ababio also known as Ama Governor, a popular Ghanaian Youtuber and law student.

Unless you are living under a rock or not into social media, you might have seen or heard that she’s been on the trends for the past 3 days.

Here’s why;

Ama who was due to be called to the Ghana Bar on Friday as a new lawyer will not be joining her colleagues despite passing with flying colours after receiving a letter from the Secretary to Ghana Legal Council, Justice Cynthia Pamela A. Addo JA barring her from taking part in the process.

Weird right??

But it gets weirder from here so keep reading. According to the letter, a complaint by an anonymous concerned citizen was made against her for what he or she describes as a ‘lack of good character.’

In the letter, she is alleged to have violated Regulation 21(c) of the Legal Profession (Professional and Post-call Law Course) Regulations, 2018 L.I. 2355 which states that: “A student of the school qualifies to be called to the Bar if that student has […] (c) satisfied the Council that the student is of good character.”

The complaint also attached a Youtube video of Ama engaging in “conduct unbecoming of an application to be called to the Bar”

According to sources close to the matter, the GLC has instituted a 3-member panel to investigate the matter while her call to the bar remains pending.

I have been directed by the Chairperson of the General Legal Council to inform you of this matter and to advise you to expect to be contacted by the Committee in due course.

“You will be given a fair hearing on the complaint before a decision is arrived at,” a portion of the letter read.

After news broke out on social media, netizens and fans have waded in on the controversial decision from the GLC

Meanwhile, in a shocking turn of events, Ghanaian journalist turned-lawyer, Richard Sky has been accused of being the anonymous complainant in the letter to the GLC. In a related post, the telephone number of the former radio host was linked to the letter of complaint.

Richard Sky has rejected claims that he was behind the petition in a strongly worded statement:

“My attention has been drawn to a document in circulation in which the author has asked the General Legal Council to investigate a person said to be a student of the Ghana School of Law.
To avoid doubt, the number displayed is my number, but I DID NOT AUTHOR THE DOCUMENT IN QUESTION. ALSO, I AM NOT CONNECTED TO ANYONE INVOLVED WITH THE SAID DOCUMENT.
I have since drawn the attention of the relevant authorities to the issue for the appropriate redress. Richard Sky Dated: 10th November 2022″

Where does this leave Ama Governor??

An online petition in support of Ama has so far received over 10,000 signatures but we are yet to see how it’ll affect the investigations. Ama on the other hand has been sharing cryptic tweets on her social media about the situation and is yet to issue a statement on the matter ahead of the graduation on Friday.

It remains to be seen how this incident will turn out.
