Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has inaugurated the Enugu State Multi-Door Courthouse newly constructed by his administration in furtherance of its interventions in the state judiciary for efficient dispensation of justice.
The building is located within the Three Arms Zone of the Independence Layout, Enugu, and named after Hon Justice Raphael Chikwe Agbo, Justice of the Court of Appeal.
The chief judge of the state, Hon Justice Afojulu Raymond Ozoemena, expressed gratitude to Governor Ugwuanyi for his administration’s support to the judiciary of Enugu State, stressing that the governor has been ‘very supportive’.
Hon Ozoemena said, “The sheer strength of purpose and vision that has driven your administration and remarkably set it apart and above the rest has set a standard that will serve as a beacon for every generation and successive governments.
“You have challenged the myth that mediocrity is the bane of leadership and confirmed that those who truly wish to serve can. This imposing edifice is set as a lighthouse and habitat for all peace lovers and peace-makers of the region.”
In her remarks, the director of the Enugu State Multi-Door Courthouse, Mrs Caroline Etuk, said that Governor Ugwuanyi was ‘God’s great workmanship to achieve this awesome feat’, adding: “Had you not believed that it was necessary for this young organisation to have a domicile of its own, today will never have happened. It was your support and dedication to this project that was the spark that ignited the fire.”
Mrs Etuk said the Enugu State Multi-Door Courthouse was established in 2018 by the Enugu State Multi-Door Courthouse Law, adding that the organisation was formally inaugurated by Governor Ugwuanyi on December 17, 2018.
