“I want to use the opportunity to thank my colleagues for the honour done me and my country Ghana for the re-election which shows that they approve of the trajectory which we are collectively taking the Court towards.

“I also want to commend them for working tirelessly together in contributing to the modest achievements we have achieved since coming on board, which are manifested in the significant improvements recorded in the swift and effective disposal of cases since we took office two years ago.

The five judges of the court include Edward Asante (Ghana) President, Gberi-be Ouattara (Cote D’Ivoire) Vice President, Dupe Atoki (Nigeria), Keiukura Bangura (Sierra Leone), and Januaria Costa (Cape Verde).
