The present administration in Ogun state has restated its commitment to ensure even development across the three Senatorial Districts of the State.
The State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, represented by his deputy, Engr. Noimot Salako Oyedele, stated this at the commissioning of the Ogun State Multi-Door Court House, Sagamu.
Gov. Abiodun stated that the edifice at Sagamu was the third of its kind in the State, as Abeokuta and Ijebu-Ode had gotten theirs, saying the project would be replicated in Ota soon.
He commended Remo Growth and Development Foundation (RGDF), for its effort at ensuring the edifice was constructed and ready for commissioning, advising other groups to emulate the gesture.
Earlier in her welcome address, the Ogun State Chief Judge, Hon. Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu, said Ogun remains the only State in Nigeria and sub-Saharan Africa, with three Multi-Door Court Houses, adding that the State Judiciary was one of the few that had keyed into the programme.
According to her, “Alternative Dispute Resolution is now widely acknowledged as the quickest means of resolving dispute globally. It has therefore become necessary for the Ogun State Judiciary to adopt this globally recognised fast and less cumbersome means of settling disputes”.
In his goodwill message, the Akarigbo and Paramount Ruler of Remoland, HRH, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, enthused that, with the commissioning of the edifice, travelling to Abeokuta and Ijebu-Ode to resolve conflicts would be a thing of the past, advising people to make judicious use of the facility.
The Co-Chairman, RGDF, Are Kola Oyefeso, explained that the Foundation was a creation of the Akarigbo and Remo Royal Fathers, to harness Remo potentials to the fullest, instead of relying on government, saying the edifice was independently financed by Remo indigenes for the development of Remoland.
