Sanwoolu Appoints 2 Badagryians as High Court Judges

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on Tuesday swore in two Badagryians, Ezekiel Ashade and Adeniyi Pokanu, along with six others as new judges in Lagos State, saying that COVID-19 pandemic should not slow the pace of administration of justice.

The eight judges took the oath before the Governor and members of the state’s cabinet at a ceremony held in the Executive Council chamber of the State House, Alausa, Lagos.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the new judges are, Justices Dorcas Olatokun, Yahqub Oshoala, Omotola Oguntade, Olufunke Sule-Amzat, Rasul Olukolu, Sharafa Olaitan, Ezekiel Ashade and Adeniyi Pokanu.

Sanwo-Olu charged the judges to acquaint themselves with the new culture of justice dispensation, driven by technology, which was being used in the ongoing pandemic.

Mr. Governor said the judges earned their nominations and appointments to the High Court of the state based on their sterling credentials and experience in their respective areas of engagement.
