The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, says Nigeria will endure “grave consequences” if legal officials are denied of imperative foundation.
He gave the admonition on Thursday in Port Harcourt at the hand over of duplexes Rivers State Government worked for Rivers decided in the State and Federal Judiciary.
Muhammad was spoken to by Justice Mary Odili of the Supreme Court.
The CJN said Judges would be more sure to apportion justice on the off chance that they had great haven.
Noticing that Lagos and Rivers rank among the most belligerent states, Muhammad said labor and materials are extended a long ways past breaking point to take care of the huge number of cases recorded day by day.
“That explains the enormity of work before Judges. A good car, shelter and good welfare package are some of those things that can serve as a magic wand to bring out the best from them”, NAN quoted him as saying.
“Whenever we deliberately or inadvertently toil with the welfare of judicial officers, we are unconsciously inflicting a debilitating wound on the conscience of the nations.”
The CJN said the arm of government was not ignorant of Governor Nyesom Wike’s investment towards improving infrastructure in federal courts.
“Today, he is giving Judges a lifelong accommodation on an owner-occupier basis. This is good,” Muhammad added.
