Former President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday inaugurated the Delta State High Court Complex in Asaba with the presentation of 20 Toyota Prado Sport Utility Vehicles, SUVs, to judges by Governor Sheriff Oborevwori.

Speaking during the inauguration, Jonathan commended Governor Oborevwori for his focus on infrastructural development and his commitment to continue with projects inherited from previous administrations. 

“There are some projects that are fundamental to the growth and development of the state and we expect anybody who takes over government to continue with them and you are doing exactly that. 

“I believe that if you go across the country today, this is one of the best judicial headquarters in the country and I congratulate the governor and the judiciary of Delta State for this exemplary project,” the former president said.

Jonathan also lauded Oborevwori for his prudence in returning unutilised funds of over N500 million to the state treasury when he was speaker of the House of Assembly. 

He urged the people to keep supporting the governor for the overall development of Delta State.

Earlier, Governor Oborevwori said the completion of the High Court building is in line with his commitment to complete projects inherited from previous administrations. 

He said he was motivated to complete the project because the judiciary is the only arm of government without a befitting building for their operations.

In his remarks, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Olukayode Ariwoola, represented by the Presiding Judge of the Court of Appeal, Asaba Division, Justice Bolaji Yusuf, commended the state government for providing the magnificent edifice as a temple of justice.

Also speaking, the Chief Judge of Delta State, Theresa Diai thanked Governor Oborevwori and his predecessors for the completion of the edifice, describing it as a magnificent testament and enduring
