Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa says he is pleased to announce that in line with law, the state judiciary has been accorded full autonomy.
In a post by the Governor, he said;
Earlier today, at a meeting with the Chief Judge of Delta State, Justice Marshal Umukoro, and other judges in the state’s judiciary, I was pleased to announce that in line with the law, Delta State’s Judiciary has been accorded full autonomy.
This is because, with my signing of the Judiciary Autonomy law in January 2021, and the setting up of the relevant committees by the Chief Judge, our great state has begun the process of implementing full autonomy for its judiciary.
As we work to improve our democratic processes across the board, we are proud that Delta State now has both a legislature and judiciary that are fully autonomous.
