New Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin-Yeboah, has assured he will guard the integrity of the judiciary as his predecessors had done.
Speaking moments after taking his oath of allegiance, judicial oath and oath of secrecy, Justice Anin-Yeboah noted he will take all necessary steps to ensure that during his term of office solutions are found to challenges bedeviling the judiciary.
He said during his vetting by parliament, it was evident that the delays in the justice delivery system, the integrity of the judiciary and the continuing perception of corruption, poor infrastructure of the courts and residences and other challenges surrounding the legal education were of great concern to the people of Ghana.
“Having been sworn in as the Chief Justice of Ghana, I am indeed humbled and want to assure Ghanaians that I will jealously guard the integrity of the judiciary and ensure that these challenges will be looked at,” he said.
He expressed gratitude to the President, Nana Akufo-Addo and counted on him to secure the much needed financial resources for improved and efficient justice delivery.
Justice Anin-Yeboah, therefore, expressed his gratitude to his predecessor for her dynamic leadership of the judiciary over the two and half years in office.
He also thanked Her Ladyship, Justice Georgina Wood for teaching him the basic administration in the judicial process.
