The government has embarked on the construction of 120 courthouses with accompanying accommodations for judges across the country.

This was revealed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during his State of The Nation Address in Parliament on Wednesday, March 8.

President Akufo-Addo said 60 out of the 120 courthouses have been completed while others are at various stages of completion.

“For the first time ever, we have the happy situation of purpose-built courthouses with accommodations that are waiting for judges to be appointed to put them to use,” he said excitedly.

The president further said that six new regional high courts, fitted with judges’ residences are also being constructed in the new regions — Ahafo, Bono East, North East, Oti, Savannah and Western North.

He said the courts in North East, Oti, Savannah have been completed and commissioned while those in Ahafo, Bono East and Western North Regions will be completed by April this year.

“Mr. Speaker, I had the pleasant duty on 17th October 2022, to commission a new, modern Court of Appeal complex in Kumasi, together with 20 townhouses and a guesthouse to serve as permanent residences for Court of Appeal Judges based in Kumasi, who are mandated to handle appeals from the northern part of the country.

“The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, who generously gave the land, was present at the ceremony. It is a truly magnificent site and I recommend it to Honourable Members who go to Kumasi to pay a visit and see it for themselves,” he added.

Additionally, 210 vehicles were, earlier in 2022, distributed to all judges in the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal, High Court and Lower Courts.
