Judiciary Staff Swear To Oath Of Secrecy, Allegiance

The Chief Judge of Lagos State, Justice Opeyemi Oke, has ordered judiciary workers to take the  oath of secrecy and allegiance.

The move was part of efforts geared towards fighting corruption and ensuring efficient, effective and transparent service delivery within the state judiciary.

It was also to make them  accountable for whatever action they take in the pursuit of their duties

The exercise, which began yesterday simultaneously at Ikeja High Court and the Foyer of Igbosere High Court, will last four days.

Flagging off the oath taking at Ikeja High Court, Justice Oke reiterated the state government’s determination “to ensuring that justice is not just delivered, but seen to be delivered without delay”.

The Chief Judge maintained that the state judiciary will not relent in its resolve to ensuring its vision of providing justice for all.

“This oath taking therefore serves as a reminder to all staff to be committed to the state government in providing quality and professional services in a knowledgeable manner and holding themselves accountable to the highest standards of performance and taking pride in their respective duties”, she emphasised.

Justice Oke, in her remarks,  promised an overhaul of the judiciary by ensuring that its staff are accountable, dedicated and more committed in the discharge of their duties.

She had also stressed that the state judiciary is committed to quick dispensation of justice.
