From Thomas Agbenyegah Adzey, Dunkwa   .

The chief of Dunkwa, Okofrobour Obeng Nuakoh III has appealed to the Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo to consider establishing a High Court in his traditional area.

This, according to him, would help address effective administration of Justice in the area.

He said even though the previous government provided a well furnished office accommodation for the Judicial Service, the facility is idle as no judge and staff have been posted there.

“Even though a High Court building has been completed and furnished for some time now, no judge or staff have been appointed, while the facility seem abandoned and overtaken by weeds”,  the chief complained.

At a press conference in Dunkwa, the chief explained that the absence of a law court in the town inhibited smooth administration of justice in area.

According to him, the nearest High court is in Cape Coast, which is about 200 kilometers apart.

Okofrobour Obeng Nuakoh commended teachers and students in the district for making the Upper Denkyira East Municipality proud by emerging as the overall best district in the 2017 BECE results.

On the state of roads in the town, the Dunkwahene mentioned that the roads from Dunkwa to Kyekyewere, Buabeng, Pokukrom, Obuasi and Ayanfuri are in very deplorable state and needed immediate government attention.

The chief also bemoaned that the main bus terminal in the town is an eyesore and called for concerted effort by stakeholders in rehabilitating the terminal
