By John Ndu :

Awka, Jan. 23, 2020 (MOI) Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra State has urged judges in Anambra State Judiciary to speed up dispensation of justice in accordance with stipulated laws.

Gov. Obiano gave the directive while inspecting ongoing upgrade of premises of Awka Customary Court of Appeal to be converted to An Appeal Court that would commence operation soon in the Anambra State capital.

The governor explained that the state had since secured approval for establishment of Court of Appeal in Anambra.

He observed that establishment of the court in the area would expedite dispensation of justice, as backlog of cases emanating from Anambra in Enugu would be transferred to Awka.

Gov. Obiano also noted that establishment of the court would create jobs for teeming unemployed youths of the state.

The governor, then, expressed the hope that the court would commence hearing by February. (MOI)
