Aregbesola stated this on Tuesday in the address delivered at the swearing-in of two newly-appointed Judges of the State High Court; Justice Ayotunde Oyeyemi Oyebiyi and Justice Adekola Lateef Adegoke, held at the Conference Hall of the State Local Government Service Commission, Osogbo.
The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Otunba (Mrs) Titilayo Laoye-Tomori, in the speech titled: ‘Justice is of the essence’ congratulated the two newly-appointed judges, while charging them to administer justice without fear or favour.
Aregbesola observed that absence of social justice leads to conflict and war, adding that justice is the centre of all organisations of human society and at the same time, centre of the Yoruba ethos.
He therefore, re-affirmed the determination of his administration to champion the course of good justice, because he is a product of justice as delivered by the courageous Judges of the Court of Appeal that sat in Ibadan in his favour in 2010.
Aregbesola disclosed that since his assumption of his administration, necessary machinery have been put in place to preserve and promote the course of justice, among which was the establishment of alternative centre for resolution of conflicts in the state.
Earlier in the response by one of the newly-appointed Judges, Justice Oyebiyi, he gave glory to God and appreciated the governor over their appointments, while he described the occasion as a memorable one in their lives.
He then promised not to fail and disappoint the state judiciary and the state while discharging their responsibilities.
