Nigeria: Welfare of the Judiciary, Our Priority, Says Jang

Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State has reiterated his administration's commitment to make the welfare of the judiciary, as well as conducive working environment for judiciary a priority. He said, "we know that the attainment of speedy and efficient dispensation of justice is also dependent on these factors."

The Governor, who made this commitment while swearing in two judges of the Customary Court Appeal in the state, added that the executive arm of government is driven by the synergy it enjoys with the Judiciary. "We are therefore not unmindful of our duty to create a flourishing environment for an effective and efficient legal system in the state."

He added that appointments in the judiciary will be on a continuous basis so as not to create vacuum which according to him usually lead to overload of work on judicial officers.
