Another important ceremony has happened in Kumasi and it required the presence of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and Otunfuo Osei Tutu II.
The President performed a sod-cutting ceremony for the construction of townhouses for judges of the appeals courts in Kumasi.

Some regions that will benefit include Western North, Ahafo, Ashanti, Bono East, Bono, North East, Upper West, Savanna, Upper East, and many others.
Cases are also expected to be adjudicated in the shortest possible period. At the sod-cutting ceremony, the overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom, Otumfour Osei Tutu II could be spotted in pictures exchanging greetings with Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.
The two, had a lengthy friendly chat whilst other dignitaries look on. As usual, Otumfour Osei Tutu II was represented massively with the entourage of traditional authorities from Manhyia.
