Court of Appeal Complex for the Asaba Division would be inaugurated on Feb. 3, 2020.
This was disclosed to newsmen by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State after inspecting on-going work at the complex located on Mariam Babangida Way. The governor revealed that finishing touches were being made to ensure that everything is in place before the inauguration.
He expressed satisfaction with the level of work done so far on the project and stated that the functionality of the court would bring a lot of relief to Deltans who travelled long distances to other states to seek justice.
He said, “We were here a few weeks before the Christmas holidays to inspect this project and from what we can see now, the contractors have done very well; a lot of work has been carried out on this project.
“This project is due for inauguration on the 3rd of February which is two weeks from today.
Although I believe that there are still a few more things to be done, the contractor has given the assurance that within one week the project will be completed.
“Four states were approved to have Courts of Appeal and I am happy that we are set, everything is in place as we will meet with the date set for its inauguration.”
The governor explained that with a division of Court of Appeal in Delta, there would be speedy delivery of judgment for the people.
He added that the risk of going to other states and travelling long distances in search of justice would now be eliminated.
According to him, ‘‘we are happy as a people and as a state that we are making progress in all spheres of life’’.
The governor also inspected the Traditional Rulers Council Secretariat project which completion he said would provide a conducive environment for the traditional rulers to discuss issues concerning their kingdoms.
