President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has touted the remarkable progress achieved in fortifying Ghana’s judicial framework under his administration. He made the remark yesterday when he commissioned the ‘Law House’, a modern ten-storey edifice that will now serve as the new office of the Attorney-General and the Ministry of Justice. The commissioning signifies the culmination of a vision that began over two decades ago during President Akufo-Addo’s tenure as Attorney-General in the government of President John Agyekum Kufuor. President Akufo-Addo stressed the pivotal role of the rule of law in nurturing a robust democracy, and mentioned a spectrum of initiatives aimed at modernizing and digitizing the nation’s legal and judicial systems. The President cited the implementation of electronic filing systems within the judiciary—a pioneering move that has substantially reduced reliance on conventional paper-based documentation while streamlining judicial proceedings. He underscored his administration’s unwavering commitment to enhancing judicial infrastructure. According to him, since assuming office in 2017, the government has made unprecedented strides in erecting court edifices and residential accommodations for judges nationwide. “As of February 2024, seventy-nine of these courthouses have been successfully inaugurated and are operational, with the remaining twenty-one projects progressing steadily and slated for completion within the year. “Additionally, the government has erected one hundred and twenty-one residential units for judges, and in Kumasi, twenty fully furnished four-bedroom units replete with essential amenities have been built for Justices of the Court of Appeal,” he indicated.
