Delta State Governor Swears in New Judges, Calls for Justice and Probity
Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, has sworn in new judges in the state and called for justice, fair hearing, and personal probity. The governor emphasized the need for judges to maintain a high level of integrity and to ensure that the guilty are punished according to the provisions of the law. He also urged the newly appointed judges to be good role models and leave a legacy of courage and righteousness.

Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, emphasized the importance of fair hearing, equity, and good conscience in the discharge of judicial duties as he swore in new judges in the state. He urged the judges to ensure that justice prevails for all and that the guilty face appropriate punishment.

The governor made these remarks during the swearing-in ceremony of Justice Catherine Ojugbana-Orishedere as President Customary Court of Appeal and seven other judges of the State Judiciary. The newly appointed judges include Aforkeya Obomejero, Okeleke Ifeanyi Samuel, Umuko Aboyowa Godwin, Ossai Ngozi Rita, Adolor Onorieukuhakpo Sunny, Gbakeji Emakpor Michael, and Uraih Ifeanyi Tracy Patricia.

Governor Oborevwori commended Justice Ojugbana-Orishedere's recommendation by the National Judicial Council and her subsequent confirmation by the State House of Assembly. He stated that her elevation to the position of President Customary Court of Appeal after 23 years of service speaks volumes about her capacity, competence, and fitness for the office.

In his charge to the newly appointed judges, Governor Oborevwori emphasized the need for them to uphold values such as hard work, sincerity, dedication, consistency, and excellence. He also emphasized the importance of passing judgments that are anchored on the principles of fair hearing, equity, good conscience, and common sense.

"Justice is served when it is anchored on the timeless values of fair hearing, equity, good conscience, common sense, and the guilty are punished. Your offices require that you maintain a high level of personal probity, devoid of greed," the governor stated.

Governor Oborevwori expressed confidence in the abilities of the newly appointed judges, stating that he has no doubt that they will justify the confidence reposed in them through their appointment. He urged them to serve as good role models to their subordinates, peers, and professional colleagues.

Responding on behalf of the judges, Justice Ojugbana-Orishedere expressed gratitude to Governor Oborevwori for finding them worthy to serve in the state judiciary. She assured the governor of their commitment to the discharge of their duties as enshrined in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The swearing-in ceremony was witnessed by the state Deputy Governor, Sir Monday Onyeme, Chief Judge of Delta State Justice Theresa Diai, Deputy Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Arthur Akpowowo, and former Chief Judges of the State, Justice Roseline.
