Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has bragged about his contribution to infrastructure development for the country’s Judiciary.

Speaking at the launch of the 2024 Africa Conference of the International Association of Women Judges, President Akufo-Addo said the Judiciary has benefited from more infrastructure projects under him than any other administration before him.

“Indeed, since I assumed office in 2017, my government has made unprecedented progress in the provision of court buildings and residences for judges around the country,” Akufo-Addo stated.

He said he promised to build courthouses with residential facilities in 2017 and has so far delivered 79 fully completed projects. President Akufo-Addo noted that the remaining 21 from the promised 100 would soon be completed before he leaves office in January 2025.

“In 2020, we set out to construct 100 courthouses with residential facilities nationwide. As of February 2024, seventy-nine courthouses have been successfully inaugurated and are in use in various parts of the country. The remaining 21 projects are at various stages of completion and are expected to be completed and inaugurated soon, at least before I leave office,” Akufo-Addo.

Chief Justice Gertrude Torkonoo expressed gratitude to the President for his support for the Judiciary. She also praised the President’s “belief in the rule of law” saying it’s been “evident during his tenure as President.”
