The governor also assured NBA of his administration’s commitment to fulfilling its goal of defending people’s rights and promoting the rule of law in the state.
Speaking on behalf of the three branches, the NBA Chairperson, Ikere branch, Mrs Kikelomo Owolabi, said that the sanctity of the judiciary had been weakened by lack of financial autonomy and independence.
She urged the governor to use his position as Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) to intervene in the industrial action by judiciary workers.
Owolabi also urged the governor to rally his colleagues in the NGF to promote the independence and financial autonomy for the judiciary and respect for the constitutional principle of separation of powers.
