Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo on Thursday handed over a twin fully furnished and equipped High Court complex at Idogbo, Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area(LGA), to the State Chief Judge, Justice Joe Acha.
Obaseki, was represented at the occasion by Mr Kennedy Osifo, Chairman, Edo State Oil and Gas Producing Area Development Commission.
The governor said the project was his administration’s commitment to improving the processes of dispensation of justice in the state judiciary in line with his Making Edo Great Again agenda.
Handing over the complex, the governor also directed EDSOGPADEC to immediately rehabilitate and tar the access road to the court complex.
The CJ said the new courts had rekindled the hope of judiciary staff especially, Judges, who before now were compelled to preside over cases under bad conditions.
Acha used the occasion to draw the attention of the governor to some court buildings in the state which he said required urgent rehabilitation.
