Amosun, who spoke during a religious service to mark the beginning of the new legal year, said the executive alone cannot successfully pursue the war against graft. He said the active support of the bar and bench is needed. The governor assured judicial officers in the state of his administration’s determination to improve on their welfare in order to nip corruption in the bud. A church service was held at the Cathedral of St. Peters, Ake, while a Moslem service held at the Central Mosque, Kobiti in Abeokuta. Amosun, while praising the Chief Judge, Justice Olatokunbo Olopade, for the judiciary’s support, said his administration would continue to improve on judicial officers’ welfare despite the current economic situation. “A lot would be done to improve on the welfare of our judicial officers in the state. Government alone cannot fight corruption to a standstill. We need the active support of the Bar and Bench to nip the cankerworm in the bud. “There is no better time for you to rededicate yourself than now that the new administration at the Federal level is trying to kill what I call corruption. “So, we need the judicial staff – both the judges and the lawyers to assist in that process to have a new Nigeria,”the governor said. Speaking with journalists after the church service, Justice Olopade urged judicial officers to be steadfast in administering justice. She said they should ensure fairness and equity in the dispensation of justice at all times. Justice Olopade said the state would embark on renovation of all the courts, provide tools for workers andfocus on measures at decongesting the prisons, such as community service. Delivering a sermon, the Lord Bishop of Ijebu Southwest, Rev. Babatunde Ogunbanwo said judicial officers should endeavour to administer justice with truthfulness, righteousness and the fear of God. He added that they should be humble despite the enormous powers they posses. Prof Hafis Oladosu of the Department of Islamic Studies, University of Ibadan praised the state government for placing Ogun on the path of development. He urged the governor to complete all on-going projects.]]>
