Legal20Dinner-1
For the first time in the history of the State of Osun, Governor Rauf Aregbesola last Tuesday hosted the members of the state judiciary to a dinner to mark the beginning of this year’s legal year.
The dinner, held at Banquet Hall, Government House, Osogbo, the state capital, had in attendance High Court judges, magistrates, members of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and other judiciary members of staff.
Addressing the judges, Governor Aregbesola described them as the myth of government, making modern democracy functional.
He described Osun judges as “genuine priests in the temple of justice, who always protect public interests by upholding the law.
He said; “the law and order exit for the purpose of establishing justice and that is why a judge will sit and sentence someone to death or life imprisonment and such person will have no option rather than to die.
“ Without the law, the essence of human beings would not have been possible. Progress in the society depends upon the fairness, honourable and contentious adjudication of law on your part, otherwise, the society is set for doom”.
Aregbesola added that the current transformation in the state for the past 34 months was the product of a courageous judiciary.
“If not the courageous judiciary, one million individuals like me could not unseat Olagunsoye Oyinlola, but by law and its enforcement, we are here. If not law, the popular mandate of the people would have remained in wrong hands.”
This single example, according to the governor, underscored the importance of the judiciary in a democratic society to restore law and order.
Aregbesola also commended the Osun judiciary for quick dispensation of justice on the convicted kidnappers of the wife of the Speaker, Alhaja Muibat Salaam.
Speaking Earlier, the state Chief Judge, Justice Adepele Ojo, said the special dinner with the governor was the first of its kind in the state and commended the governor for his commitment to an efficient judiciary in the state.
