"Our administration is pursuing a developmental agenda that is centred around the people

"You have all distinguished yourself as senior citizens with track records of integrity and selfless service to our people.

"I, therefore, urge you to always consider this record in everything that you do as members of this statutory commission", the governor said.

Mr Titus Ashaolu, who spoke on behalf of the JSC members, thanked the governor for the appointment 'We express our sincere appreciation for finding us worthy of this appointment "We promise to do our best as members of the JSC not to disappoint you in your efforts to uplift the state and ensure the progress of the judiciary", said Ashaolu.
