Yola branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), on Saturday called on Governor Bindow Jibrilla of Adamawa State, to give respect to the court judgment which confirmed the autonomy of states’ judiciary.
The NBA branch chairman, Abubakar Babakano, who stated this when executives of the association paid a courtesy call on Governor Babakano praised the governor over his role in the suspension of the six month strike carried out by Judicial Staff Union in the state, to press for judiciary autonomy.
The NBA chair maintained the rule of law would not be guaranteed without judicial independence, just as he appealed to the governor to abide by his administration’s commitment to comply with Section 83 (3) and 121 (2) and (3) of the Constitution, that affirmed autonomy of states’ judiciary.
He said, “The sustenance of democratic process, the defence of rule of law and human rights cannot be guaranteed if the judiciary is not independent in all its ramifications.”
