Popular Ghanaian law graduate and YouTuber, Elorm Ama Ababio, aka Ama Governor, has finally been permitted to apply for the bar.
This victory comes after months of back-and-forth over conflicts between her rights to privacy and legal ethics, which were wildly sparked by her social media content and lifestyle. She was also reported by one of her colleagues to the General Legal Council.
But, now, the General Legal Council has granted her permission to seek admission to the Bar. This was revealed in a statement issued by the Council this week.
Explaining its findings for the 2022/23 legal year, the Council said Ama Governor is now permitted to “complete appropriate forms for application to be called to Bar in October/November 2023.”
The statement said the Council will “monitor and observe the student’s conduct during the time leading up to the submission of the application to be called to the Bar.”
It further stated that if Ama Governor is admitted to the Bar, she will “be expected to give a special pledge to be of good character and not reprise any actions which may bring the profession into dishonorut.”
Ama Governor is yet to issue a statement or react to the virdict by the General Legal Council.
