Edo Gov., Godwin Obaseki Swears-In Eight High Court Judges

Eight High Court judges were sworn-in on Monday in Edo State by Governor Godwin Obaseki who urged them to be impartial in their dispensation of justice and promised the judiciary necessary support to adopt new technology in the dispensation of justice.

Obaseki said his administration would this year focus on rebuilding courts and judges’ quarters outside the state capital as he promised to hand over the newly built Judges Quarters to the Chief Judge later this week.

He said he would also extend support to federal judicial institutions in the state with the planned relocation of the Court of Appeal from its present location.

He said: “We are making history again in Edo State with the swearing-in of eight new judges. This is part of our commitment as a government to strengthen the judiciary. As I have always said that for us to have a virile democracy, we must strengthen the rule of law which means making sure that the judiciary is if not one of the strongest arms of our democracy.

“I urge you to carry on your duties without fear or favour. This appointment is from God and not from any man

“We will continue as the executive to help invest in the required infrastructure. As we appoint judges, we have to also provide an environment for the judges to work efficiently.
