BENUE State acting governor, Engr Benson Abounu yesterday charged the new Chief Judge of the state, Aondover Ka’kaan to ensure quick dispensation of justice, as justice delayed is justice denied.
Abounu gave the charge during the swearing-in of the new chief Judge at Government house in Makurdi.
He enjoined the chief judge to ensure that the right thing was done in all circumstances to prove the judiciary as the last hope of a common man.
The acting governor further urged him to work hard to surpass the laudable achievements of his predecessors so that he would write his name in gold.

“The choice of Ka’kaan became necessary because he was the most senior judge in the state and his impeccable track record stood him out.”
He expressed confidence in his ability to deliver quality service to the state as exemplified in the cases he had handled both within and outside the state.
While responding, the new chief judge promised to abide by all the wordings of the oath he took, stressing that oaths are not mere rhetorics but a covenant with God and humanity.
”I will discharge my duties without fear, favour, affection or ill will. I will eschew corruption and not aid as well as abet it. I will abide by the oath strictly and not go against the constitution.
”This task is an onerous one, so I am soliciting for prayers from all of you to enable me succeed,” he stated.
