Late Justice Kayode Eso
By Onyebuchi Ezigbo
The Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) Friday described the late Justice Kayode Eso as an honest and incorruptible jury.
The party in statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Rotimi Fashakin said it received with mixed feelings the news of the demise of Justice Kayode Eso.
"Whilst it could be said that a sage and elder-statesman that had laboured, very assiduously, for the good of the society was deserving of rest as it is appointed for all mortals, it is something of regret that the incorruptible Judge would cease to be with us in flesh and blood.
He said Justice Kayode Eso, in his life-time, showed the way in judicial courage and uprightness.
"He never pandered to the majority at any time to do what he felt was unsupportable with available evidence and the dictates of his conscience. It was little wonder that his judgments
bore the imprimatur of intuition, brilliance and unassailability. This easily explains why, in retirement, his services were still sought anywhere there was need to search for Truth and Justice!
"As a Party, we commiserate with his immediate family, the Nigerian Judiciary that has lost another beacon of hope and the Nation for this huge loss of a worthy Patriot. We pray for the fortitude to bear this loss, " he said.
