Governor Diri Inaugurates First Electronic Filling Court In Nigeria

The Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri, on Wednesday inaugurated the first in Nigeria electronic court filing system, which will quicken the process of litigation and administration of justice in the state.

Governor Diri launched the new filing system while inaugurating the remodelled State High Court complex at Onopa, Yenagoa.

The reconstructed complex is named after the pioneer Chief Judge of the state, late Justice Koripamo David Ungbuku.

Senator Diri congratulated the state’s retiring Chief Judge, Justice Kate Abiri, for the construction and completion of the project in record time.

Diri said that the electronic filing of documents and work-based access to court materials had become commonplace in many developed jurisdictions around the world.

Lauding Justice Abiri for outstanding 13 years of service as head of the state’s judiciary, Governor Diri said the impressive new structure with its modern design is a mark of how much the state judiciary has progressed under her watch.

He also commended the Chief Judge of Borno State, Justice Kashim Zana, for assisting the Bayelsa judiciary achieve the feat towards enhancing the speedy administration of justice.

The governor said it was fitting that the remodelled court complex was named after Justice Ungbuku, describing the gesture as a mark of honour to the late jurist who served the state meritoriously.

“I like to commend Justice Abiri for working with the executive arm of government to deliver good governance. Our Prosperity Administration views the judiciary as an important pillar of our democracy. And that is why we have continued to give other arms of government their dues without hindrance. What we see today is the outcome of that cordial working relationship.

“This edifice is named after late Justice Ungbuku. I see this as an act of remembrance and honour to those who have served our state. Justice Ungbuku is actually one of our heroes past in the judiciary of Bayelsa State.”

The governor also commended the local contractor, Engr. Iniebi Warikoru, for delivering an impressive job and recommended him to the state Ministries of Works and Housing and Urban Development.
