Twenty newly appointed magistrates in Anambra State Judiciary, newly appointed Deputy Chief Registrar and retired Chief Accountant of the Judiciary on Monday, June 22, 2015, smiled home with a car each.

This is the first time the judiciary took charge of its own affairs, according to the Chief Registrar of Anambra High Court, Mrs. Doris Ezeani.

Ezeani, who read an address to welcome the Chief Judge, Mr. Justice Peter Umeadi, to the venue of the event, said that the occasion marked a milestone as it was the first time judiciary “took absolute charge of its own affairs following the financial autonomy recently granted the judiciary by the state Governor, Willie Obiano, to whom we owe much gratitude”.

While affirming judiciary’s support for the governor, Ezeani said the judiciary would continue to do its best to serve the good people of the state in the dispensation of justice and in assisting the governor to move the state forward.

She thanked Justice Umeadi for his interest in staff welfare, in the transformation of the Judiciary of the state and for providing in record time, the funds for the procurement of the brand new cars.

Umeadi while presenting the cars said that it was the governor who ought to make the presentation and that he was representing him.

He thanked God that such “a day has come in the life of Anambra state”.

He praised Governor Obiano for his magnanimity and foresight “for providing the working tools to the magistrates”.

According to him, the cars will aid the magistrates in their work and he hoped they will make good use of them; put them in proper repairs and come to work for the good of and prosperity of the state.

Also, Justice Umeadi received the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hassan Karma, on a courtesy visit to his office.

Karma said that he visited the Chief Judge to find out how the judiciary is working.
