Gov. Oyetola expresses confidence in judiciary as Appeal Court begins special session in Osun.
The Osun State Governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola has expressed confidence in the Nigerian judiciary, describing it as an instrument for the sanitisation and stability of democracy. Oyetola made the remarks while delivering a keynote address at the commencement of the 10-Day Special Court Session of the Court of Appeal, Akure Division, holding in Osogbo, the Osun state capital.
The Court of Appeal has established a reputation for itself as the home of landmark judgments in the nation. The preponderance of its judgments upheld by the Supreme Court is proof that it is indeed and in truth the Temple of Justice. The statutory position of the Court of Appeal as the exclusive prime place where Justices of the Apex Court of the Land are appointed underscores the importance of your court,” Oyetola said. The Governor thereafter implored judges to always strive to uphold the very tenets of Appeal Court, which had endeared it to many Nigerians as an haven of nobility and integrity. Your Lordships, I warmly welcome you to the State of Osun and wish you all the best as you courageously beam the torch on the dark parts of the appeals before you and give hope to the oppressed,” he said.
