Assin South Gets New Court
Chief Justice Anin Yeboah, together with the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin South, Ṛev John Ntim Fordjour, has commissioned an ultramodern circuit court in the Assin South District in the Central Region.
The edifice, which is to promote effective justice delivery in the district, was officially opened on Thursday April 27, 2023.
According to the Assin South District finance officer, the facility which was funded by Common fund comes with a residence for the judge and a solar-powered borehole.
Other auxiliaries are the Registrar’s office, ICT room, bailiffs and a standby generator for uninterrupted power supply.
He admonished the Judiciary Staff, which would be posted to the court, to keep it neat and ensure prompt maintenance.
On his part, the MP, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, commended the Chief Justice for spearheading judicial reforms to promote effective justice delivery in the country.
In his address, he thanked the Apimanim and Atandansu Traditional Council for releasing land for the project.
He acknowledged President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo’s immense investment in justice delivery and promised to continue to lobby for more developmental projects for the good people of Assin South.
A welcome address, delivered on behalf of the Assin South District Chief Executive (DCE), Felicia Ntrakwah Amissah, by the District Coordinating Director, Mr. Awuku, stated that, “As we can all see this outstanding and beautiful court premises, came by the effort of our previous DCE, Derrick Owusu Ambrose, to start, and the same effort was put in by the current DCE, Felicia Ntrakwah Amissah, in collaboration with MP, Rev. Ntim Fordjour to complete it.
That is why we are here today witnessing this hallmark achievement by the current NPP government, and to be commissioned by His Lordship Chief Justice Anin Yeboah.”
He also urged the police officers not to go to Assin Fosu or Cape Coast, but to direct their appropriate cases to the court for efficient and timely delivery of justice.
“Likewise, as citizens, let’s put the court to good use by allowing justice to take its course,” he stated.
