Delta High Court Complex: A dream Come True

The successful completion and commissioning of the Delta State High Court building in the state capital has been described as a dream come true to the Judiciary in the state.
The Chairman, Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Asaba branch, Precious Nwadimuya Esq, stated this in an interview with newsmen shortly after the inauguration of the magnificent complex by former President of Nigeria, Mr. Goodluck Jonathan.

Afam Osigwe, SAN as GS under Augustine Aleghe SAN’s administration, introduced Stamp & Seal that has greatly reduced the menace of fake lawyers.

Nwadimuya Esq noted that while the Legislative and Executive arms of government in the state had their befitting office accommodations, the story was different for the Judiciary, which had been without one since the creation of Delta State in 1991.
The NBA Asaba branch Chairman said though the waiting was quite long and tortuous, it was worth the trouble as the new Complex was, by all standards, one of the best in the country.
He commended previous administrations in the state for initiating and funding the project to the point where the present administration took over and made its completion a top priority.Nwadimuya Esq said with the six High Courts in Asaba now housed in the new Complex, with full compliments of modern technology for filing and paying for processes, decent office spaces for the Judges and their support staff, waiting rooms for witnesses and holding cells for suspects, a lawyers lounge, dispensation of justice in the Asaba Judicial Division would be greatly enhanced.
He, however, appealed to the State Government to replicate the High Court building in Delta Central and Delta South senatorial districts and give the Magistrate’s Courts and customary courts a facelift, to make the Judiciary more effective across the state.
The NBA Chairman, while thanking Governor Sheriff Oborevwori for presenting Toyota Prado SUVs to 20 Judges of the High Court, appealed to him to extend the gesture , without waiting for so many years, to the remaining Judges in the state and the presiding officers at the lower bench who by virtue of their work do more in terms of dispensing justice at the grassroots.
