Delta State governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has said the state plans to build quarters for judges across the judicial divisions in the state, and also provide regular medical check up for judges.
Dr. Uduaghan that his administration would seek expert opinion on Section 121 (3) of the 1999 Constitution provides that, "Any amount standing to the credit of the Judiciary in the Consolidated Revenue of the State shall be paid directly to the Head of the Courts concerned”, assuring that where the interpretation is to the effect that the judicial arm be allowed to operate their budget, he would not do otherwise.
The Governor who was speaking when the State Chief Judge, Justice Roseline Bozimo led other judges in the state on a courtesy visit to the governor on Thursday, said the independence of the judiciary and fearlessness of judges have been sustain Nigeria’s democracy.
Speaking earlier, the Chief Judge of the Delta State Judiciary, Justice Rosaline Bozimo made a strong case for the financial autonomy of the judiciary in the state as provided for in the 1999 Constitution and also canvassed better working conditions for members of the state's judiciary.
The chief judge had observed that Section 121 (3) of the 1999 Constitution provides that, "Any amount standing to the credit of the Judiciary in the Consolidated Revenue of the State shall be paid directly to the Head of the Courts concerned.
"To all intents and purposes, the Constitution has given the Judiciary power to implement its budget in respect of the appropriation provided therein for the Judiciary and consequently the powers of the State Executive under Section 5(2) of the Constitution to execute the State Appropriation Law are to that extent qualified.
"It may be argued that to do so is an incursion into the State Executive powers. However, the Constitution, the supreme law of the land have so stipulated and the arrangement has to be complied with," she said.
Bozimo also pleaded for the building of befitting court halls, accommodation and lodges for judges in the state as well as annual oversees medical allowance.
