BY Samuel Oyadongha

Yenagoa – Chief Judge of Bayelsa State, Justice Kate Abiri, Wednesday, warned that the judiciary would not tolerate any act of indiscipline and corrupt practices within its rank.

Justice Abiri,  at the special court session in Yenagoa, as part of activities to mark its new legal year, frowned at what she described as incessant delay in the dispensation of justice in the state’s courts and called on the judges and magistrates to ensure quick dispensation of justice in their courts.

She said: “Enough is enough. The judiciary will not tolerate any acts of indiscipline and corrupt practices. Judiciary personnel must exhibit honesty, discipline and accountability in the dispensation of justice.”

Justice Abiri said that adjournment of cases now attracts cost in the state judiciary, calling on the state governor, Mr. Seriake Dickson to urgently implement section 121 of the Nigerian constitution as its borders on the judiciary to enhance its effectiveness and efficiency in service delivery.
