The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Yola Branch has urged Governor Bindow Jibrilla of Adamawa to respect court judgment that affirmed the autonomy of states’ judiciary.

The NBA branch Chairman, Mr. Abubakar Babakano made the appealed on Saturday in Yola, when executives of the association paid a courtesy call on the governor.

He commended the governor for his roles in the suspension of the six months old strike embarked upon by Judicial Staff Union (JUSUN) in the state, to press for judiciary autonomy.

Babakano stressed that the rule of law would not be guaranteed without judicial independence.

He appealed to the governor to honour his administration’s commitment to comply with Section 83 (3) and 121 (2) and (3) of the Constitution, that affirmed autonomy of states’ judiciary.

“The sustenance of democratic process, the defence of rule of law and human rights cannot be guaranteed if the judiciary is not independent in all its ramifications.

Gov, Jibrilla assured the NBA of his administration’s commitment to work with the association in the task of transforming the state. (NAN)
