She told the lawmakers that “the fact that cases go to the Supreme Court as of right poses a challenge to us.”

When asked whether she will call for an amendment to the Constitution to place a cap on the number of cases to go before the highest court of the land, she answered “It is up to the people of Ghana if we feel that there is the need to make changes in the constitution that needs to be done.”
