On Monday, the 10th of June 2024, Nana Akufo-Addo, the President of Ghana, had the honor of commissioning the Law House in Ghana. He indicated that this event marked the culmination of a long journey that began over two decades ago when he served as the Attorney-General in the Government of the 2nd President of the 4th Republic, His Excellency John Agyekum Kufuor. It was during that time that the vision for this building was conceived, and now, we witness that vision transformed into a tangible reality under his presidency.

In his address, President Akufo-Addo stated that the completion of the Law House stands as a testament to the NPP government’s commitment to addressing the age-old office accommodation problem that has plagued the Attorney-General’s Office and the Ministry of Justice for far too long. This state-of-the-art facility will now house the Office of the Attorney-General and the Ministry of Justice, providing a conducive environment for the efficient administration of the law in our country.

President Akufo-Addo paid a glowing tribute to the work undertaken by the Attorney-General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, in bringing us to this day. Akufo-Addo emphasized that when he assumed office as Attorney-General in 2021, after four years as Deputy Attorney-General, the completion status of the Law House project was at thirty-six percent. His personal commitment, together with his support, was instrumental in reviving and bringing the project to completion. His efforts ensured that this initiative, which could have easily ended up as another abandoned government project, was implemented to become the impressive structure that we are celebrating today.

Indeed, the contract for the construction was awarded to M/S Energo Projekt Ghana Limited in 2001, but, due to various challenges, including delays and the need for fresh procurement approvals, the project faced several hurdles. Godfred Dame managed these issues by obtaining the relevant approvals and re-engaging contractors, leading to a renewed effort to complete the project. He has done a yeoman’s job, and I say a hearty ayekoo to him. After all, and not to be overlooked, he is one of the many worthy products of M/S Akufo-Addo, Prempeh & Co., the President stated.

With this modern facility, the Office of the Attorney-General and the Ministry of Justice will be better equipped to carry out their crucial roles in upholding the rule of law and ensuring justice for all citizens.

President Akufo-Addo reiterated his administration’s dedication to advancing the legal sector and emphasized the importance of such infrastructure in achieving the nation’s developmental goals. He expressed confidence that the Law House will serve as a hub for legal excellence, enabling Ghana to strengthen its position as a beacon of democracy and the rule of law in the region.
