In recognition of their meritorious service and outstanding display of professionalism in the prosecution of the case, the Republic vs. Samuel Udeotuk Wills and Another (Takoradi Missing Girls’ Case), the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame held a lunch meeting to honour Mrs Patience Klinogo, a Chief State Attorney and Mrs. Adelaide Kobiri-Woode, an Assistant State Attorney at the Office of the Attorney-General in Western Region, Takoradi.
The Attorney-General congratulated the two on his own behalf and on behalf of the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo–Addo for the immense effort they put in the work to obtain a conviction, which has brought relief to the nation.
Mr. Godfred Yeboah Dame noted that, it is only fit and proper to acknowledge and reward officers who achieve remarkable accomplishments in their work.
He added that, with the Takoradi missing girls’ case, the responsibility to bring the matter to its logical conclusion rested on the Attorney-General’s Office, and that burden has successfully been discharged by the two Attorneys.
Mr. Dame said, it was in that regard that he found it appropriate to recognize their efforts particularly considering the interest the public had in the case.
The A-G was thankful to the team of Attorneys at the Takoradi office, particularly Mrs. Klinogo and Mrs. Kobiri-Woode.
A citation was read and presented to Mrs. Patience Klinogo and Mrs. Adelaide Kobiri-Woode who contributed immensely to the case.
The Director of Public Prosecutions Mrs. Yvonne Attakora Obuobisa expressed appreciation to the Minister for mooting the lunch programme and for recognizing the diligence of these Attorneys.
Mrs. Patience Klinogo, on her part, thanked the Attorney-General for the gesture and added that the award will motivate them to do better.
The meeting was held on March 29, 2021 at the Kempinski Hotel in Accra.
