Anambra State Government says it has procured the first batch of Stenographic machines to assist in quality justice delivery.
Governor Willie Obiano, who made this known at a Church Service marking the 2020/2021 LEGAL year of Anambra State Judiciary at the Cathedral Church of St Faith, Awka, said that the set of Stenographic machines would be deployed to twenty-five courts in the state.
The Governor announced that the state had concluded plans to establish juvenile correctional homes.
Chief Obiano, who explained that his administration had maintained good working relationship with the Judiciary and the legislature, pledged to ensure that justice was delivered to the people.
Earlier, in the church service, the Archbishop Province of the Niger and Anglican Bishop of Awka Diocese, the Most Reverend Alexander Ibezim, said that life is a mirror which one should live seeking God’s face at all times.
Archbishop Ibezim lamented that a lot of people had lost hope in God due to the current challenge facing the country and the world.
He stated that the world could surmount the present challenge through faith in the lord Jesus Christ.
The Most Reverend Ibezim, who maintained that the #EndSARS youth sought for justice, called on government at all levels to lead in truth and justice.
The Chief Judge of Anambra state, Justice Onochie Anyachebelu, who thanked God for the gift of life to the Judiciary, promised that they would continue to render selfless service to all.
The theme for the legal year was “Administration of Justice in Contemporary Times: Appraisal and Challenges.”
