Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State has sworn in Dahiru Gusau as the new Grand Khadi of the Shari’a Court in the state.
A statement on Thursday the governor’s Special Adviser on Media, Zailani Bappa, said the governor also swore-in 3 new Special Advisers; Bashir Muhammad, Abubakar Maradun and Muzakkiru Tsafe.
It further stated that the new Special Advisers took their oath of office from the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Kulu Aliyu.
According to Mr Bappa, the governor charged the new Grand Khadi to be upright and just as his actions and inactions would be accounted before God.
He urged other Judges in the state to always remember that, “Zamfara State is the home of Sharia in Nigeria and what the people expect is excellence in justice delivery”.
Mr Matawalle also disclosed that all Sharia Courts in the state will be renovated while all Judges will be provided with official cars.
“It is not befitting or even safe to site a Judge riding a commercial motorcycle,” the governor said.
He noted that such projects are changes many people do not want, assuring that his administration “is bent on bringing these changes”.
“A committee is already in place to look into all the problems of the Judiciary in the state,” Mr Matawalle said, assuring that the state government will ensure the implementation of their recommendations.
In his remarks, the new Grand Khadi thanked the governor for the honour done to him, promising to carry out his duties without fear or favour.
“I promise to be firm and just in the discharge of my duties.
“We thank His Excellency for his intention to address the problems faced by the Judiciary,” Mr Dahiru stated.
