    Akeredolu’ll be remembered for strengthening judiciary – Aiyedatiwa

    Ondo State Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has eulogised the late former governor of the state, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, saying the late Akeredolu would be remembered for his efforts in strengthening the judicial system in the state.

    Aiyedatiwa said his former boss did well in using the rule of law to fight against crimes and criminalities while in office.

    The governor stated this while speaking at the special court session held in honour of the late governor at the state High Court headquarters, Akure, the state capital on Wednesday.

    Aiyedatiwa who became the governor of the state shortly after the death of Akeredolu in December 2023, said the late governor would also be remembered for signing into law some bills that enhanced the security system of the state, particularly, the bill to establish the state security network agency also known as Amotekun.

    He said, “We remember with pride today his (Akeredolu) sense of urgency and intervention and unusual dedication to the cause of access to justice.

    “His support for the Multidoor Court System, improved delivery of the Alternate Dispute Resolution system and welfare for judges and judicial officers, are well documented.

    “Shall we forget his drive for necessary and expeditious law-making? For records, he sponsored the Executive Bill for a law to establish the Ondo State Security Agency and Amotekun Corps, to assist in maintaining law and order in the state. His government also sponsored a bill for a law to provide for the establishment of Ondo State Security Trust Fund.

    “Others include but are not limited to a bill for a law to provide for the establishment of an independent office of the Auditor-General which provides for the audit of public Accounts. There was also the bill for a law to establish the Ondo State Agency against violence against women.

    “Others include but are not limited to a bill for a law to establish the State Public Complaints, Financial Crime and Anti-Corruption Commission as well as a bill for a law to regulate rearing and grazing of livestock and to provide for the establishment of ranches.”
