“Today (Monday) I presided over the swearing-in ceremony of Adamawa’s first female Chief Judge, Hon Justice Hafsat Abdulrahman, the Grand Khadi Hon. Justice Ibrahim Sudi and the President of Customary Court of Appeal Hon. Justice Audu Balami, at the Conference Hall, Government House Yola.

The Chief Judge, Hon. Justice Hafsat Abdulrahman, is a consummate judge who rose through the ranks with unblemished record in her years of service and substantive judgements to her belt. We are making history as a government by having the first female Chief Judge in the history of the State. Her emergence is therefore, a watershed development in gender mainstreaming and a testament that the girl-child is at liberty to rise and become anything with merit, devoid of any man-made barriers in Adamawa State. To parents, I must say, if we are looking for a role model for our daughters, this is a perfect place to come to – merit, right, truth, hard work, dedication, fairness and justice.

As a Government, we shall continue to accord every democratic institution the needed respect and support. We have institutionalized our organic believe in the doctrine of separation of powers. Today in Adamawa State, the three arms of Government – the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary are functioning with optimal autonomy. It is now a culture that the only way we can realize our aspiration of delivering purposeful leadership to our people is to allow all the organs of government to function independently.”

Earlier in their acceptance speech, the new judges through Justice Hafsat pledged to promote justice to the best of their ability.
