Before he mounts the podium to deliver the maiden lecture of the Constitution Day on the theme “Constitutionalism in Ghana’s Fourth Republic: Towards Functional Performance”, his past is running after him
The Rector of Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Prof. Philips Ekow Bondzi-Simpson who is bailed as the lead speaker of Government’s median edition of Constitutional Day Lecture today, January 7, 2019 has his past chasing him before he mounts the podium to speak on “Constitutionalism in Ghana’s Fourth Republic: Towards Functional Performance”.
The law professor and the Founding Dean of the Faculty of Law of the University of Cape Coast was on January 21, 1999 “found guilty of professional misconduct for sexually harassing a client” by the Law Society of Ontario in Canada.
He was then “suspended for a period of 18 months, commencing at the conclusion of the current administrative suspension”
