Representing the government, President Nana Akufo-Addo recently cut the sod for the implementation of the proposed Law Village Project in Ghana, at East Legon near the university of Ghana business school in Accra.
This project, which mainly involves the construction of an ultra-modern 4-storey academic building for the Ghana Law School, will be carried out by Joberg Ghana Ltd, a wholly-owned Ghanaian construction and real estate developing company.
Speaking during the sod-cutting ceremony, Mr. Kwasi Prempeh-Eck, the Director of the Ghana law school urged the contractor to stick to the timelines of the project that is to be completed in a year from the day it broke grounds.
On the other hand, CEO of Joberg Ghana Ltd Joseph Magmus Marteye guaranteed Ghanaians at large that his company has a track record of delivering quality work within the stipulated timelines and will not disappoint in terms of its deadlines.
