…. Governor Obiano says it will create jobs, quicken justice delivery

By Ndu Chris Nwannah, Guest Writer, Awka Times

Arrangements are in top gear for the take-off of the Awka Judicial Division of the Court of Appeal.

Already, finishing touches are being made to the proposed Appeal Court complex located at the former Anambra State High Court/Customary Court of Appeal, Awka.

Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, while inspecting the upgrading of facilities at the Customary Court of Appeal Awka, expressed the hope that the Appeal Court would commence sitting by February 5 this year.

Governor Obiano assured that the Appeal Court would create jobs for citizens. According to him, it would also enhance the dispensation of justice as most of the cases in Appeal Court, Enugu which originated from the state would be transferred to the Awka Division of the Appeal Court.

He appreciated the level and quality of work being carried out on the proposed Appeal Court complex.

The Governor charged judges and other judicial officers to brace to the challenge of efficient and quick justice delivery in the country.

Governor Obiano had in 2019 set up a committee made up of legal icons to look into and develop a framework for the siting of a Court of Appeal in the state to cater for the large number of appeal cases emanating from the area.

On December 6 last year Justice Doban Mensah had led a delegation of the Court of Appeal to inspect facilities being put in place for the take-off of the Awka Division. The visit yielded fruits as the delegation approved its commencement as enormous work had been carried out at the complex.
