The Congress for Progressive Change CPC says it received with mixed feelings the news of the demise of Justice Kayode Eso yesterday and described the late Supreme Court judge as an elder-statesman that had labored, very assiduously, for the good of the society.
"It is something of regret that the incorruptible Judge would cease to be with us in flesh and blood. Justice Kayode Eso, in his life-time, showed the way in judicial courage and uprightness" a press statement by the party's publicity secretary Rotimi Fashakin said.
"He never pandered to the majority at any time to do what he felt was unsupportable with available evidence and the dictates of his conscience. It was little wonder that his judgments bore the imprimatur of intuition, brilliance and unassailability. This easily explains why, in retirement, his services were still sought anywhere there was need to search for Truth and Justice.
As a Party, we commiserate with his immediate family, the Nigerian Judiciary that has lost another beacon of hope and the Nation for this huge loss of a worthy Patriot." he concluded.
