Elorm Ababio, popularly known as Ama Governor, has officially been admitted to the Bar in Accra after a prolonged dispute with the Ghana Legal Council.

The conflict stemmed from a letter received in 2022 regarding Ama Governor’s conduct as a law student. Despite meeting all requirements, she was initially denied admission to the Bar due to allegations of misconduct.

In a video posted on Starr FM’s social media platforms on May 31, 2024, Ama Governor was seen joyously ascending the podium, receiving her certificate from dignitaries, and returning to her seat.

The saga began in 2022 when Ama Governor faced accusations of behavior unbecoming of a Bar applicant. This decision sparked widespread public debate, with some supporting the General Legal Council’s actions while others questioned its rationale.

Ama Governor vehemently denied any wrongdoing, asserting that she had not been provided with specific instances of misconduct and felt unfairly treated.

In September 2023, a report at the 2022/2023 bar conference revealed that a committee had reviewed the complaint, allowing her to commence the application process for the October/November 2023 sessions.

However, in October 2023, she was once again denied admission to the Bar by the General Legal Council, citing ongoing concerns about her conduct. While she could reapply after October 20, 2023, her behavior would be closely monitored.

In 2024, a list shared by the GLC included Ama Governor among 182 candidates from the Ghana School of Law for the May 31, 2024, call to the Bar ceremony.
