Yaman congratulates Ag. CJ, chides govt on judges’ welfare


The gubernatorial candidate of the Kwara State Peoples Democratic Party, Alh. Shuaibu Yaman Abdullahi has congratulated Justice Abiodun Ayodele Adebara on his swearing-in as the Acting Chief Judge of the State.

In a statement signed and made available to

According to Alh. Yaman, “Hon. Justice Abiodun not only deserves and merits the swearing-in as the most senior Judge on the bench but has discharged his judicial responsibility without fear or favour, affection or ill will, even as he demonstrated unparalleled leadership and administrative qualities”.

While congratulating the immediate past Chief Judge, Justice Suleiman Durosinlorun Kawu, OFR, for his untainted and unblemished almost 40 years of meritorious service to the state, Alh. Yaman urged the state government to do more to improve the welfare of civil servants in the state.

“Our judiciary, as the beacon of hope and sustenance of democracy, deserves a better deal from government”, Yaman.

According to the PDP gubernatorial candidate, a situation where judges, magistrates and several permanent secretaries go to offices in commercial transports, while sunset political office holders who contribute little or nothing to the growth and development of the state, ride in exotic cars, is not only antithetical to the principle of good governance but endangers democracy.

“Government must not only compensate career officers for their services to the state after retirement but provide necessities of life for them while they are in service”, Yaman explained.

“Recently, some kind-hearted individuals renovated and equipped the state’s High Court because the government reneged on parts of its basic responsibilities”, Yaman said.
