As part of efforts  to boost the welfare and improve the services of  judicial workers in Kwara State, the state  governor, Alhaji AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq  yesterday presented 12  top-of the range Toyota Fortuner Jeeps to the judges.

Besides, the state  Chief Judge, Hon. Justice Abiodun Ayodele Adebara  got a 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser for the use of his office, in what underlined the administration’s efforts to make the judges more comfortable in their service.

At the official presentation of the vehicles to the judges at the State High Court Ilorin, the Hon. Chief Judge of the state, Hon. Justice Adebara, disclosed that earlier in the February this year 2024, five Toyota Fortuner Jeeps were allocated to five of the state High Court Judges from the money made available by the state government under the 2023 budget.

The Chief Judge added that five new Toyota Fortuner Jeeps procured under the 2024 approved budget were allocated to  another five of the judges of the state High Court  yesterday.

He said, “Also, this morning, His Excellency Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq released another seven Toyota vehicles to the judiciary. Six of which are meant for the six new judges to be  appointed”.

The Chief Judge explained further that the purchase of a brand new vehicle is a condition precedent for the appointment of a new judge.

“These appointments are in the offing, and this is one of the requirements of the National Judicial Council (NJC).

“There must be a vehicle on the ground before the appointment of a new judge for inspection. His Excellency has supplied six vehicles, and the seventh one is for the office of the Chief Judge,” he said.

“I want to sincerely thank His Excellency, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq,  who has been so friendly to the judiciary of Kwara State. He has been treating our requests with dispatch in positive ways.

“What we are witnessing today is another positive impact of his administration on the money allocated to the judiciary in the 2024 budget under vehicle procurement. He promptly approved it. The money was released to the judiciary,” Justice Adebara explained.

The CJ recalled that the last time judges received vehicles from the government was eight years ago apart from the judges appointed on 2020 and applauded AbdulRazaq for his care for the state judiciary.

Justice Adebara, however, said: “The last time these judges had vehicles from the government was eight years ago. How will eight-year-old vehicles look like today in term of  efficiency? Some of our judges are not even within Ilorin.

“It will enhance our jobs and the dignity of the office of a judge. So, it will complement our jobs and boost the morale of judges.

“I give glory to God, and I appreciate the amiable governor of the state for prioritising this important needs of the judiciary among other competing needs in the state.

“We are very grateful. We still have some judges who are yet to have their vehicles. I believe very soon, we’ll have their own.”
