Benue boosts service delivery among judges with donation of vehicles

Governor Hyacinth Alia of Benue State has donated six Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV) to the Benue State Judiciary.

Making the donation Monday in Makurdi, the governor said the vehicles were part of the resolution of his Administration to ensure the welfare and effective service delivery of the judiciary in the State.

Governor Alia commended the judiciary for their services, urging them to do more to ensure that law and order are strictly maintained in the state.

Delivering the vehicles to the Judiciary on behalf of the governor, Fidelis Mnyim, the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice and Public Order, appreciated the governor for the gesture and requested the judiciary to put the vehicles to good use for the benefit of the State.

Mnyim said four of the cars were for the Benue State High Court Judges while two of the cars were for the Judges of the Customary Court of Appeal, Benue State.

He also thanked the governor for promoting the rule of law, particularly by granting autonomy to the judiciary in the State to perform optimally.

Recall that during the just concluded National Judicial Review Summit which was put together by the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Lateef Fagbemi, the Attorney General, had commended the Benue State governor for granting autonomy to the Benue State judiciary, urging other State governors to emulate Governor Alia.

The Summit applauded governor, saying for Governor Alia of Benue to have complied with section 121 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) by the fifth alteration Act, it shows that the governor has integrity and is ready to run a transparent Government.
