Beaming with confidence and with a majestic walk upstage when her name was called,  Elorm Ababio walked up stage to take the popular bow.

With spontaneous applause from the gathering, everything suggested that Ama Governor is the most popular person among the new lawyers.

Moments after the General Legal Council’s gathering was adjourned sine die (indefinitely) and the official function had closed, EIB Network’s Legal Affairs Correspondent, Murtala Inusah, approached the newly inducted lawyer for an interview.

But, with smiles beaming on her face after the introduction of the journalist she said, “I have been advised against granting interviews,” adding that, “I am sorry.”

Not even, a request for her to describe the moment in just a word was enough to convince Ama Governor to kowtow.

With her new lawyer’s wig atop her head walking majestically with so much confidence and with her spectacles almost slipping to the tip of her nose, Ama Governor looked focused.

On the last day of the 5th month of the year 2024, the popular Ghanaian YouTuber and law graduate, Elorm Ababio, popularly known as Ama Governor finally had had her dream come true.
