Two new Judges are to be appointed into the Bayelsa state judiciary to enhance the process of criminal justice of the state.
The Attorney-General and commissioner of Justice, Kemasuode Wodu disclosed this hint while addressing the special court session, marking the 2017-18 legal year in Yenagoa.
According to him, arrangements are already concluded for the appointment of the two new judges in the judiciary.
The Attorney-General further exposited that the state government has approved money to build a secretariat for the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) including two buses.
Not only that, the state government would soon award contracts to build judges quarters to better their life.
He also decried the absence of a Federal High Court judge in the state who is exclusively to entertain all oil and gas extraction issues in the state, adding government is unhappy over the absence of the judge.
It could be recalled that the Federal High Court judge in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state is removed following allegation of corruption practices leveled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Since then, no new judge has been appointed for the Federal High Court in Yenagoa.
Also speaking, the chairman of Yenagoa-Sagbama NBA Clement Buruboyefa commended Bayelsa state judges for their impeccable character in dispensing justice because none of them is found wanting for corruption.
He also commended the state Chief Judge, Justice Kate Abiri for providing recording machines in some of the courts in the judiciary, saying that she can extend the same thing to others yet to get the recoding machines.
