Oyo boasts of giving non-Nigerian made SUVs to judges

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State

Oyo State Government says it has delivered brand new non-Nigerian made sports utility vehicles (SUVs) to seven judges of the State High Court.

Presenting the vehicles to the judges on Thursday, Governor Seyi Makinde, who was represented by the secretary to the state government (SSG) Olubamiwo Adeosun, noted that it was to make their ”work easy and ensure efficient justice delivery.”

”The state government gave some vehicles to some judges in 2021 and is also planning to provide more for Magistrates. The vehicles are brand new and not manufactured in Nigeria.

“Work is in progress to tar the State High Court premises and meet the other needs of the judiciary,” he said.

Also, the commissioner for justice Oyelowo Oyewo said the judges need vehicles that suit their jobs.

Oyewo said the state government was mindful of the autonomy of the judiciary and would ensure that all their needs were met.

Earlier, Oyo State Chief Justice Munta Abimbola thanked the state government for the gesture and appealed for more support for the judiciary.

“We are very grateful for your support and love and ask that our other needs be met especially the tarring of the court premises,” he said.
