L-R: Chairman Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) AbdulGaniyu Bello; Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq
Plans are underway to build a befitting High Court complex for the Kwara State Ministry of Justice, as part of efforts to create a better environment for the Judiciary in the State.
Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq disclosed this when he received the newly inaugurated Ilorin branch Executive Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), in his office, in Ilorin.
The Governor said efforts are ongoing to put the right infrastructure in place for smooth running of the courts for effective justice system in the state
He said he was displeased with the “inhabitable” conditions of courtrooms in the state — a condition that had earlier necessitated the rebuilding and furnishing of the Area Court at centre Igboro and the Magistrate Court at Sango and the re-roofing of the high Court complex, among other renovation works in the justice sector.
The NBA delegation led by the Chairman of its Ilorin branch Barrister Ganiyu Bello said their visit was to appreciate the governor on projects his administration had embarked upon, especially his passionate attention to the judicial arm of government.
He also called for more attention to the welfare of judges especially area court judges and better infrastructure in the courts.
