Obio gets three courts


Obio district in Obio/Akpor local government area of the state will have customary, magistrate and high courts to accelerate the dispensation of justice within the Port Harcourt Judicial Division.

Obio district in Obio/Akpor local government area of the state will have customary, magistrate and high courts to accelerate the dispensation of justice within the Port Harcourt Judicial Division.

This means that cases emanating from Obio, which had hitherto serious burden and congested the courts at the headquarters will be a thing of the past. This hint was dropped yesterday by the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Iche Ndu at a brief ceremony on the official presentation of the revised laws of the state at his conference hall in Port Harcourt.

Justice Ndu appealed to the state Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Odein Ajumogobia (SAN) to ensure that there was a legal backing to the audio recording equipment acquired by the state Judiciary, noting that the use of the equipment would be a departure from the old tradition of recording proceedings in long handwriting.

The Chief Judge pointed out that the introduction of the revised laws of the state would encourage judges to make pronouncements with certainty without difficulty, noting that the absence of good laws make their honourable assignment difficult.

He commended members of the state House of Assembly, the Executive and Attorney - General for bringing about the exercise of the revised laws to fruition.

Earlier, the Attorney - General, Mr. Ajumogobia had explained that why the official presentation of the revised laws of the state was delayed and commended the Chief Judge for his understanding.

Mr. Ajumogobia described the event as symbolic because it enabled judges in the state to have the revised laws of the state that were printed in South Africa for easy dispensation of justice.

The Attorney - General lauded the cordial relationship existing between the bench and bar and expressed the hoped for its improvement in 2005.

The event was grace by Judges and officials of the State Ministry of Justice.
