Judge Gertrude Torkornoo, the Chief Justice of Ghana, and other judges from the Judicial Services have given GH¢125,000 to the Volta Region flood victims, which was brought on by the Akosombo and Kpong Dams overflowing.
Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the Member of Parliament for North Tongu, made the announcement of the gift on social media. He stated that the GH¢125,000 was raised in response to the Chief Justice’s request for judges and judicial service employees to assist the flood victims.
“The Honourable Chief Justice, Her Ladyship Gertrude Araba Esaaba Sackey Torkornoo, distinguished judges and the entire Judicial Service of Ghana deserve abundant commendation for their extremely kind and generous gesture of donating to displaced persons in my beloved North Tongu.
“It has been disclosed that the Chief Justice initiated a compassionate mobilization of personal contributions from judges and staff of the judiciary including her own financial support amounting to an impressive GHS125,000.00 which she gracefully announced to my revered chiefs and I at a beautiful ceremony in her office earlier today,” the MP wrote on X.
Additionally, he said that the GH¢125,000 would be utilized to supply specific building materials for our second Safe Alternative Housing Project in Mepe and to build an automated well.
The lawmaker from North Tongu conveyed his appreciation to Justice Torkornoo and the legal staff for their thoughtful action.
