Award winning Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson has sympathized with Ama Governor after the General Legal Council denied her entry to be called into the Ghana Bar Association to become a lawyer.
For the second time in a row, Elorm Ababio, a social media influencer, has been denied the chance to be called to the Ghana Bar.
The General Legal Council established a committee to investigate Ama Governor, a candidate for the bar who was the subject of widely circulated videos showing him acting in an unseemly manner, in November of last year.
Following consideration of the report, the Council decided to allow her to complete the necessary paperwork for her application to be admitted to the bar in October or November 2023, citing the need to observe and monitor her activities first.
In an unexpected turn of events, the General Legal Council announced in a statement that it had rejected Ama Governor’s application to be admitted to the bar, with the ceremony taking place on Friday, October 20, 2023.
After this, Ghanaian actress and socialite, Lydia Forson arose to the defense of Ama Governor and encouraged her.
Ms. Forson in a tweet on X (formerly Twitter) said even though social media influencer and Youtuber has been through pain, hurt and frustration, she will definitely be fine.
She continued that, Ama Governor is fighting for a good course and will be remembered for not being silent but challenging the system and made her voice heard.
The actress lambasted the entangled law student’s trolls on social media who make mockery of her situation.
Lydia Forson’s tweet was met with opposition from netizens who disagreed with her support for the Ama Governor.
Ama Governor will be fine,she may suffer a lot of pain, hurt and frustration,but eventually she will be fine.
History never remembers the silent,but those who challenged the system and made their voices heard.
You and your trolling on the other hand,will be forgotten.

Meanwhile, according to the council, following consideration of her public behavior preceding the application, her fate was decided at a meeting on Tuesday, October 17, 2023.
As the General Legal Council’s decision surprised many in the legal community, there has been widespread public outcry, particularly on social media. Discussions about the standards and factors that determine someone’s eligibility to be called to the Bar have been sparked by this development among legal professionals and the general public.
