The Subsidiary High Court of Nigeria has installed Mrs Aramide Oniru (Olori) as its new High Chief Ranger.
Speaking at the installation banquet & 21st Anniversary Award Night in Lagos, Mrs Oniru noted that Subsidiary High Court (also known as Ancient Order of Foresters Friendly Society) had been a democratic society since 1997.
She said: “My journey in the Ancient Order of Foresters Friendly Society started in 1987, 27 years ago, when I was initiated into Court Friendship and Truth, No 10140.
“Foresters, being a democratic society, in 1997, I was elected and installed as the Chief Ranger of my Court, also in 1998 and 2007.”
She noted that all her achievement as the High Chief Ranger would not have been possible but for the encouragement and support she received from her immediate family, husband and Oba of Iruland, Oba Idowu Abiodun Oniru.
“The Ancient Order of Foresters Friendly Society is the friendliest of all the friendly societies, and was established in Nigeria over 100 years ago,” Mrs Oniru added.
She said the society did not permit dissension to mar its harmony or interrupt proceedings.
“We also claim the privilege of watching over the conduct of our members not only in the Court room, but also in their intercourse with the world,” she said.
