Earlier in the day, the Chief Justice had inaugurated the Ngleshie Amanfro District Court in the Ga South Municipality.
At the inauguration, the Chief Justice reiterated his call on bringing justice delivery to the doorstep of the citizens.

The court is here to serve all of us, let us have confidence in the court processes and make use of the facility”,
he added that, the establishment of the court was in fulfilment of the judiciary’s vision to bring justice to the doorsteps of the citizenry.

“It is our resolve to build a justice system that ensure our litigants and countrymen had efficient, timely and quality justice delivery.”

He encouraged court users to explore the Alternative Dispute Resolution mechanism (ADR) rather than go through litigation.

He noted that the use of ADR will go a long way to improve the turnaround time of cases “because ADR is faster, cheaper, easier
and less acrimonious and there is neither a winner nor a loser.”
