Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, has restated his commitment to the welfare of the judiciary in the state, even as he unfolded plans by his administration to establish befitting Customary Court of Appeal in all judicial divisions in the state.

The governor, who stated this in Ado- Ekiti yesterday during an inspection of the construction work at the Customary Court of Appeal complex at the Oke-Ori Omi area of Ado-Ekiti, assured the judiciary that his administration would continue to provide conducive working environment for all judicial workers in the state.

While appreciating the National Judiciary Commission (NJC) for the establishment of Ekiti State Customary Court of Appeal, Oyebanji said his administration would further expand the scope of Administration of Justice in the state.

According to the governor, “One of my promises to the judiciary is that we are going to ensure that we provide a conducive working environment that befits their status. And this is the standard we are setting in Ekiti State. Once this one is done, we intend to replicate this in other judicial divisions in the state. Coming here personally attests to my commitment to my promise to the judiciary workers in the state; they are in for very good time.”
