Justice Anin Yeboah expressed immense gratitude to the Ga West Municipal Assembly, for the edifice which to him, signifies the Assembly’s commitment to making justice accessible to the people of Amasaman.
“Let me express my deepest appreciation and that of the Judiciary and the Judicial Service to the Ga West Municipal Assembly for providing a furnished, fit for purpose building, from where justice will be delivered. You have by the provision of this edifice, lived up to your responsibility to ensure ready access to courts in the district for the promotion of justice”, he said.
He used the occasion to remind other MMDAs of their mandate and called on them to live up to their responsibility of providing courts in their districts.
Justice Anin Yeboah also implored the Judges and staff to be professional in the discharge of their duties, being mindful that the building symbolizes the rule of law. He equally called on court users to report judicial officers who misconduct themselves to the Complaints Unit for appropriate disciplinary action to be taken against them.
He further called on court users to respect the arrangements made by the Judiciary to curb the spread of the Coronavirus and ensure that the building was well maintained to justify the investment made by the Assembly.
For his part, the Municipal Chief Executive for Ga West, Hon. Clement Wilkinson, said it was a priority of the Assembly to bring justice to the doorstep of the people.
“This facility will serve the people in the catchment area who will no longer travel to Accra to access justice and further reduce the burden of the courts in Accra”, he said.
Present at the inauguration was a Justice of the High Court, Her Ladyship Justice Mariama Sammo as well as the Deputy Judicial Secretary, His Honour Samuel Boakye-Yaidom, and some Directors and staff of the Judicial Service.
Also in attendance were the Chief of Amasaman, Nii Amasah Oseku, heads of security agencies and religious leaders.
