AG regional offices to be upgraded to three-storey buildings – Godfred Dame


The Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame, has expressed his dedication to ensuring that all regional offices of the Attorney General and Ministry of Justice are accommodated in three-storey building structures at the minimum.

Dame emphasized the need to move away from the practice of state Attorneys in various regions operating from makeshift structures or within the office complexes of other state institutions.

Speaking at the inauguration of a ten-storey building, which serves as the new office of the Attorney General and Ministry of Justice, Godfred Dame outlined his vision to establish a modern legal system.

“Towards realising the dream of a modern public legal service, I dare say that the era where regional offices of the attorney general and the minister for justices and other agencies of the ministry perch in the corner of buildings belonging to other government institutions or are sometimes thrown out of premises in which their licensees should be over soon.

“I am of the respectful view that every regional office of the ministry of justice ought to own at least a three-storey edifice and I have commenced discussions in this regard with the World Bank towards the possibility of funding for this project,” he stated.

Dame further articulated that he believes every regional office of the Ministry of Justice should possess a minimum of a three-storey building. He mentioned ongoing discussions with the World Bank regarding potential funding for such projects.

The new Law House, featuring ten storeys above ground and a two-tier basement for parking, serves as a model for efficient utilization of public lands, according to Dame.

“It will house the three divisions of the offices of the Attorney General ie., the civil division, the prosecution division and the city drafting division.

“In addition to the good number of offices for state attorneys, it boasts of a vast conference room which the GBA can use occasionally,” he added.
