By Ndahi Marama

MAIDUGURI — THE Borno State Chief Judge, Justice Kashiom Zanna, has reaffirmed his commitment to fight corruption among judicial workers in the state.

The Chief Judge made the affirmation while delivering his speech at a ceremony ushering in the new legal year and the commencement of the appeal sessions for the year 2010, at the High Court Complex, Maiduguri.

Justice Zanna said the fight against corruption was a continuous process and urged the general public and members of the Bar to report any judicial worker found wanting.

He said: “We have not recorded any dismissal on ground of corruption in the past years. That is because no one was caught. I hope it also means no one is corrupt. But we know fight against corruption is a continuous one.”

On the welfare of judicial workers, he said a welfare committee was set up and would meet to disburse N6,230,000, making the total sum disbursed at N26,830,000 in one year since the committee was set up.

He said a Borno State Division of Court of Appeal had been established, with the permanent site already under construction along Bama Road.
