Akufo Addo Cuts Sod For Appeal Court Judge Complex

Published

on

President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo today  cut the sod for work to commence on a 25 bed room facilities complex  with toilet, bathroom and kitchen each for the appeals court judges with the assurance that Government would continue to support the Judiciary to operate in peace.

‘It is Government’s responsibility to provide an enabling environment for the progress of the rule of law; we must provide the necessary atmosphere so that the Judiciary can work in peace,’ President Akufo-Addo said.

The complex project, estimated at about Gh.70 million, would be financed by the local government and rural development, and executed by FEDEMS Construction Limited.

Located at Danyame near Ashanti regional coordinating council (RCC) which has been designed by some architect from KNUST, would be a modern structure that would provide a more comfortable apartment for High court and Appeals court judges to host their families.

President Akufo-Addo cited the existence and practice of a sound judicial system as the basis for the freedom and justice needed for accelerated national growth and development.

‘Where there is justice, there is freedom,’ President said.

Justice, he said, demanded sound structures where all the stakeholders in the Judiciary would be fair and ready to attend to the needs of the people.

President Akufo-Addo stressed the need for the Executive and Judiciary to support each other to pursue the common agenda of ensuring justice to Ghanaians.

He said demands on the national coffers made it difficult to satisfy adequately the needs of the Judiciary, but added that the commencement of work on the apartment should be evidence of Government’s sincerity to address needs of the Judiciary.

Present at the ceremony were the Chief Justice, Justice Annim Akwasi Yeboah, Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II.

While speaking in an exclusive interview with CNN monitored by browgh.com, he said he is extremely pleased with the way corruption has been handled under his government in Ghana.

According to him, a lot of effort has been put in place to get rid of corruption since assuming the presidential seat and the effort has yielded good and positive results.

He noted that due to his exploits, Ghana now has a better rank when ranking the most corrupt countries in the world.

For instance, the [corruption] institutions that are in the country, when I came into office were very poorly resourced. You can talk all we like about corruption, but if the instruments at your disposal for dealing with it are weak and blunt, you will get no result,” he stated.
