He said:  “We realise that without an effective judicial system it will be impossible to practise our democracy.

We are proud of the reputation of the entire judiciary in the Edo State for its independence, integrity and its industry.

We constantly celebrate the fact that at a certain time when allegations were being regularly made regarding judges, our judiciary remained well respected and scandal-free”
