While appreciating the Staff and especially the Honourable Judges, the Chief Judge applauded their Lordships for their moral uprightness and incorruptibility in the discharge of their duties.
“I sincerely want to appreciate our Hon.

Chief Judge stated
Hon. Justice (DR) Dipeolu thereafter encouraged and advised the staff to be more hardworking, cooperative, supportive of the system and maintain integrity in the discharge of their duties. They were further advised to be prayerful in all their endeavours in the new year.

Earlier, in his word of exhortation titled “A New Season of Hope”, Hon. Justice A. A Akinyemi, charged the staff to allow God to help them to shine forth through their good works, avoid all forms of evil works and wickedness to one another and to be diligent as prayer will not take the place of diligence
