MON, 10 JUN 2024 LISTEN

President Nana Akufo-Addo has vowed that any political party or presidential candidate who violates the law in the lead-up to the December elections will face the appropriate consequences.

Speaking at the commissioning of The Law House in Accra, President Akufo-Addo assured that his administration would not tolerate any election infractions by political entities. He emphasized his dedication to upholding the rule of law and maintaining order in Ghana, particularly as the nation prepares for the December polls.

"The law will be applied consistently to ensure that the peace, security, and stability of the nation are not compromised by the ambitions of any political party or presidential candidate," Akufo-Addo declared.

The President reassured the Ghanaian public of the state's commitment to law enforcement, highlighting the role of agencies including the office of the Attorney General. "We will do all within our power to ensure that law and order prevail, especially in this critical election year," he stated.

"We will not allow the peace, security, and stability of the nation that makes Ghana a beacon on the African continent to be compromised by the ambitions of any political party or presidential candidate. It will not happen," Akufo-Addo added emphatically.

The newly commissioned Law House, a ten-storey building adjacent to the High Court complex, will serve as the new office of the Attorney General and Ministry of Justice. Initiated in 2001 and revived in January 2023, the facility boasts modern amenities including conference rooms, office spaces, parking lots, and an eating area.
