Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo has advised young girls to desist from offering their bodies to old men in exchange for iPhones.
“Girls, don’t give yourself to some dirty old man for an iPhone or for any type of phone. It is a tool, that’s all, one day you’ll own [one]. You’ll be able to buy one if you are patient and you do not throw away your virtue,” she admonished.
Justice Akuffo was speaking at the Chief Justice’s Mentoring Programme for students initiated to expose pupils to the functions of the judiciary and instil in them virtues of patriotism and selflessness.
The programme, which was under the theme: “I pledge myself to the service of Ghana”, was held in Kumasi on Tuesday, 26 March 2019.
The Chief Justice advised young people to ensure that the time they spend on their phone and on the internet is for purposes of learning and other useful activities that will enhance their lives.
She said the technology young people see today was not around yesterday and may not be around tomorrow but the values of honesty, respect, hard work, self-discipline, integrity and service will always be there and will continue to serve mankind.
She, therefore, urged them to be committed to the country’s peace, stability, environmental integrity, sanitation, and every aspect of national existence.
For his part, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II commended the Chief Justice for the number of initiatives she has undertaken to improve the condition of the judiciary and to bring justice closer to the people.
The Asante monarch indicated that the Chief Justice’s Mentoring programme will impact positively the lives of the young ones.
Otumfuo’s speech was read on his behalf by Baffour Owusu Amankwatia VI, the Bantamahene.

@Blimssy1 said: You didn’t add to the fact that she has to wake up early next day to cook and house chores before leaving for work it’s not easy to be a woman, not to talk of being a wife then a mother. Females don’t have any option than to accept it that way. Aye yii o balance.
Me and my wife will enter that kitchen together or better still buy food or eat out before coming back

‘Ensure women have access to safe abortions’ — UN tells US
“We are very concerned that several U.S. states have passed laws severely restricting access to safe abortion for women, including by imposing criminal penalties on the women themselves and on abortion service providers,” U.N. human rights spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani told Reuters Television in Geneva.
“So we are calling on the United States and all other countries to ensure that women have access to safe abortions. At an absolute minimum, in cases of rape, incest and fetal anomaly, there needs to be safe access to abortions,” she said.
