Be upright, Ahmed urges judicial officers

Kwara State Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed has urged judicial officers to maintain discipline and uphold high level of integrity in the discharge of their duties.
The governor spoke in Ilorin yesterday at the swearing-in of Acting Grand Khadi of the Shariah Court of Appeal, Kadi Mohammed Ola Abdulkadir.

According to him, the current development in the country’s judicial system calls for great concern.
His words: “The judiciary must be protected and enabled to perform its constitutional roles in the interest of our nascent democracy and public order.

“Officers of the law and indeed all citizens, whether within or outside government, must join hands to protect, uplift and sustain our judiciary.”

Ahmed called on the new Grand Khadi to be an agent of positive change and dedicate himself to uplifting the image of the judiciary.

“All judicial officers and politicians must uphold the sanctity, integrity and sobriety associated with the judicial arm of government,” he added.

He promised that his administration would uphold the welfare of judicial officers and make the environment conducive for the quick dispensation of justice.

Abdulkadir thanked Ahmed for the opportunity to serve and promised to work with his colleagues to ensure a stable judiciary.
