Examine Issues from Law, Equity and Good Conscience Perspective – CJ urges Church

                       The Chief Justice, Her Ladyship Justice Gertrude Sackey Torkornoo, has urged the Church of Pentecost
                       to examine the conversations and discussions in the constitution of the national moral vision on the sure
                       foundation of law, equity and good conscience.

                     “To this extent, in the Constitution of the national moral vision that is undertaken through the conversations
                     and discussions of this Conference, it is my fervent hope that all issues will be examined from the sure
                      foundation of law, equity and good conscience. It is my conviction that in our kaleidoscope of ethnicities,
                     belief systems, vocations and talents, the elements of the laws of Ghana, the rules of equity, and innate
                     values that flow from good conscience can surely bind our hearts and minds together and assist us to arrive
                     at a nationally accepted vision of morality. Such a vision can then drive the mind with which we walk, talk and
                     work together, thus aiding us to uphold rights, give entitlements and insist on obligations, whether at home,
                     workplaces or on the roads. It is my suggestion that this is the surest way to weave harmony and coherence
                     into the diversities of our nation”, she said.
