Akatsi (VR),- Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, the Chief Justice of Ghana, has congratulated the Akatsi South Municipal Assembly (ASMA) for using part of its District Assembly Common Fund (DACF) to finance the construction of a new Magistrate Court.
He said the facility would bring justice to the doorsteps of the people of Akatsi South and its neighbouring communities.
Justice Anin Yeboah made these remarks during a courtesy call on the Akatsi South Municipal Assembly.
He urged the management of the Assembly to complete the project early for the use of the Judicial Services in the area.
He commended Mr Joseph Horgle, a businessman from the area, for donating furniture to furnish the new Court.
Mr Martin Kofitsey Nyahe, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Akatsi South, expressed appreciation to the Chief Justice for the tour.
