Sani-Bello swears Mayaki in as Niger CJ

Justice  Aliyu Muhammad Mayaki has been sworn-in as the substantive Chief Judge of Niger state by Governor Abubakar Sani Bello.

He was sworn-in at the weekend at Government House, Minna, after confirmation by the state House of Assembly last week. 

The governor said he was looking forward to work with the new Chief Judge to embark on aggressive reforms in the judiciary. He added that “these reforms can only be attained if the judicial arm gets full autonomy.”

He said expressed hope that the state income will increase so that the administration could allocate reasonable amount every month to renovate courts.

He urged the judiciary to engage the legislative arm of government by presenting and defending its budget in order to quicken the implementation of the autonomy.
