Chief Judge Lauds Governor on Judicial Autonomy

The Chief Judge of Anambra state, Justice Peter Umeadi applauded the state government for putting measures in place to enhance the independence of the judiciary in the area.
Justice Umeadi explained that the gesture had made the judiciary in the state self-sustaining. He spoke at the ceremony to kick-off the 2017/2018 legal year.
The Anglican Bishop of Awka Diocese, Right Reverend Alexander Ibezim at the Legal Year charged judicial administrators to ensure justice delivery.

Right Reverend Ibezim particularly urged lawyers and judges to treat all citizens equally and ensure that poor people were not denied justice in the society.
He advised judicial workers who were bent on disorganizing effective dispensation of justice to have a rethink as they would also be judged by God.
The bishop while acknowledging that there were national issues begging for attention, stressed the need for a discourse to address such challenges.
Right Reverend Ibezim further advocated that the female folk should be given the opportunity to showcase their leadership potentials, alleging that men had failed the nation in political administration.
Speaking on the occasion, Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state pledged to help in addressing some of the challenges confronting the judiciary.
Governor Obiano disclosed that his administration would provide electronic facilities for the judiciary to quicken justice delivery.
