The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Samuel Onnoghen, has reaffirmed that the judiciary under his leadership remains committed to the ongoing fight against corruption and other social vices bedevilling the country.
To demonstrate the commitment, Justice Onnoghen said that judges and judicial officers shall perform their statutory functions in line with their oath of office and constitutional provisions.
The CJN, who spoke at the 33rd Annual Judges Conference of the Federal High Court in Abuja, however, pleaded for adequate funding of the judiciary to enable it cope with the mounting challenges.
Onnoghen, whose address was read by the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, specifically called for greater attention to the Federal High Court being one of the most strategic and significant arm of the judiciary.
He disclosed that the judges’ conference was an avenue for judges to appraise past events and prepare for fresh challenges, adding that a new reform that will enhance the performance of the judiciary would soon be unfolded by his office.
