Aregbesola swears in acting CJ

20 November 2012, 11:03

Osun -  Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State on Monday swore in the state Acting Chief Judge, Justice Gloria Oladoke.

Oladoke elevation followed the retirement of Justice Olaniyi Ojo, the former Chief Judge of the state

Aregbesola, who spoke during the swearing in, pleaded with the judiciary to do justice to all matters before it.

He also pleaded with judges, who he described as representatives of God in their various courts, to ensure that the purpose of justice was served in all their pronouncements.

``A situation where 90 per cent of societal resources are concentrated in the hands of 1 per cent of the people is injustice that can only breed class antagonism between the rich and the poor,” he said.

He said any attempt to deny people their rights could portend danger for the nation.

The governor stressed that the rich should allow a greater spread of societal resources to the poor in order to avert the unexpected consequences.

Aregbesola cautioned against oppression of the weak by the strong, stressing that abuse of power by the rich and powerful would only elicit proportionate response from the weak and powerless.

According to him, the resultant effect of this is an unending struggle in which the poor has nothing to lose and the rich has everything to lose.

The governor said the oath taken by Oladoke was a quest for justice and an affirmation of oneness with the universe in the pursuit of justice.

``What we are doing today, therefore, is symbolic of the quest for justice.

 An oath is a sacred thing. It is an affirmation of oneness with the universe in the pursuit of the universal purpose.’’
