The Chief Judge said: “It is in a bid to ensure that the promises are kept and delivered that I come up with the commitment statement by all staff by which we are all covenanted to work.
“This is to make the Ogun State Judiciary dynamic, innovative and proactive by achieving an independent, reform-oriented and well-funded judiciary system”.
The Customary Court of Appeal President, Justice Mobolaji Ojo has advocated adherence to the Code of Conduct of Court employees by the Judges of customary court and the staff of the State’s judiciary.
He said that the retreat was a form of continuing education programme designed to upgrade the knowledge and performance of officers of the Customary Court of Appeal, including, the Presidents and members, and officers of the CCA.
He noted that the topics for the retreat was carefully chosen for easy understanding of the hallowed position of people’s customs and the role of Customary Courts and the Customary Court of Appeal, especially in the dispensation of justice in the modern day setting.
“In fact, both the topics and resource person’s have equally been selected from the Judiciary and the Ogun State Ministry of Justice, I have no doubt in my mind that we are in for some scintillating and intellectual rewarding experience in the next two days”, Justice Ojo said.
