The Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo, has said Ghana requires leaders with integrity and not those who jump the practical hurdles of life.
She made the comment while addressing students during a special mentoring program in the Eastern region as part of her ongoing visit to various courts in the country.
The Program was on the theme “I pledge Myself to the Service of Ghana”.
The Chief Justice urged the students to uphold indestructible integrity, spirit of patriotism and volunteerism from childhood to adulthood and manifest same wherever they find themselves to help move the Country forward .
She said for Ghana to move forward positively, it is imperative to get enough men and women with honesty and integrity to serve the country in various capacities but hastened to add that these qualities must be ingrained in individuals from tender age.
“We don’t need leaders who got their qualification through unlawful shortcuts, one day you will be found out, we don’t want leaders who want to hop over all obstacles by fair or foul means just to reach their personal goals, No! we don’t need leaders like that. we need leaders who have habit of honesty and Integrity”.
