Makinde swears in Iyabo Yerima as Acting CJ
Vows to support judicial progress
Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, yesterday, swore in Justice Iyabo Yerima as the Acting Chief Judge (CJ) of the state.
Makinde, who spoke at the ceremony held at the Executive Chamber, Secretariat, Ibadan, said his administration would give her the support needed to carry out her duty diligently.
Besides, he promised to continue to work with other arms of government to ensure the system that the people will be proud of.
The governor, however, expressed confidence in the new Acting Chief Judge’s ability to steer the ship of the judiciary in the state.
He added that when re-elected under Omituntun 2.0, his administration would even do more to reduce the infrastructure deficit of the judiciary and complete the work of modernising the arm of government.
Yerima’s swearing-in became imperative a few days after Justice Muntar Abimbola bowed out of the Bench in great honour.
