Private legal practitioner, Godwin Tamakloe has said the new court complex inaugurated by the President last Friday forms part of the National Democratic Congress’ transformational agenda.

He commended the Mahama administration for carrying on the work of the late President John Atta Mills by overseeing the successful completion of the project.

Contributing to a discussion on Radio Gold’s Alhaji and Alhaji on Saturday, lawyer Tamakloe said: “That project has a lot to do with the purposeful leadership shown by late President Mills. It all started with him…This is part of the transformational agenda we have been talking about. It has taken leadership to get this thing there.”

Last Friday, the President, John Mahama, together with the Attorney General, Marieta Brew Appiah Oppong and Chief Justice, Georgina Wood inaugurated an ultra-modern court complex which will accommodate 42 High Courts.

The $50 million complex was funded by the Government of Ghana.

According to lawyer Tamakloe, the old court rooms were not conducive for the delivery of Justice.

“If you go to some courts, the environment alone is contemptuous - the heat and others so it can even impair the judgment of the Judge because already, there is a certain amount of anger in him so he is in a hurry to leave…” he remarked.

He however insisted that it is imperative for the government to “do a very beautiful documentary about it…and let people see this particular structure” because “with what I saw, it is a very, very fantastic project. I have never seen such a thing here before. It’s a massive edifice. A 42 court complex with modern gadgets; a clinic, a crèche, banks – it’s amazing.”

Lawyer Tamakloe further admonished the general public and members of the judicial service to maintain the facility.

He pointed out that the existing maintenance culture which has resulted in the destruction of numerous important structures in the country should not be applied to this new complex.

“My plea to the persons managing this facility is that they must ensure that the place is managed well. Our culture of maintenance – with this one, I am begging; we should not extend it to this facility,” he appealed.
