The Lagos State Government in a bid to enhance efficiency in dispensation of justice has made a donation of Fifty cars to to magistrates in the state.
Speaking while handing over the vehicles, the governor Babajide Sanwo-olu reiterated that the donated vehicles were the first batch as more would be provided to go round all magistrates in the state.
“This is just a testimonial to say that it is not about us, but about what we can give others. “The Deputy Governor, myself and all of us do not count ourselves worthy to buy a car yet because we know that what is expected of us is service.
“We are happy that we can do this for our colleagues in the judiciary side to enhance the efficiency of their work so that Nigerians will feel it and benefit from it,’’ the governor said.
The State’s Chief Judge, Justice Kazeem Alogba while receiving the cars on behalf of the magistrates said the gesture is a laudable one in spite of the limited resources, he said the cars were only “tools to enhance their work.”
“The only thing is that they will be able to work more comfortably and your administration will take the credit for that because you will begin to see results'”.
“We are very grateful as this has shown that as we pledge our full support to this administration, you have promised that you will be our pillar of support, you are living the talk,’’ he said.
