Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, on Thursday presented seven brand new SUV to judges in the state to make their “work easy and ensure efficient justice delivery”.
Presenting the vehicles to the seven judges, the governor said it was in fulfilment of the promise made to the state judiciary.
Makinde who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mrs Olubamiwo Adeosun, said the state government had given some vehicles to some judges in 2021, stressing that the state is also planning to provide more for the Magistrates.
“The vehicles are brand new and not manufactured in Nigeria.
“Work is in progress to tar the state high court premises and meet the other needs of the judiciary,” he said.
Speaking, the Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General, Oyelowo Oyewo (SAN), said the judges need a vehicle that suits their jobs.
Oyewo said the state government was mindful of the autonomy of the judiciary and would ensure that all their needs were met.
Earlier, the Chief Justice of Oyo State, Justice Munta Abimbola, appreciated the state government for the kind gesture and asked for more support for the judiciary.
“We are very grateful for your support and love and ask that our other needs be met, especially, the tarring of the court premises,” he said.
