The dispensation of justice in Kwara State should get faster from now at least at the Magistrate and area levels.

Kwara state Chief Judge, Justice Sulyman Kawu on Monday sworn-in 36 new judges for magistrate and area courts in the state.

Speaking in Ilorin during the swearing-in ceremony of 35 magistrates and one Area Court judge, he said Nigeria and indeed the judiciary are currently passing through trying times.

The CJ urged the newly sworn-in judicial officers to shun ethnic, religious or filial considerations in the discharge of their duties.

“Elections are coming and politics is heavy in the air. You must at all times live above board, shun corruption like a plague, exhibit courage and be independent minded in all that you do without being arrogant.

 “As magistrates and judge, you must steer away from the political arena so that the dust of the fray will not becloud your perception of the facts and issues placed before you for adjudication.

“It is only by so doing that justice will not only be done but will be seen to have been truly done,” he said.
