The Kogi State Government has inaugurated Justice Henry Olusuyi as the new Chief Judge of the state.
The swearing-in ceremony was held on Wednesday, July 8, 2020, in Lokoja, the state capital.
Justice Oluseyi was sworn in at 10:35 am after taking his Oath of Office.
The state Governor Yahaya Bello, the Deputy Governor, Edward Onaja; Speaker of the House of Assembly, Matthew Kolawole and other top government functionaries were present at the event.
This comes five days after Governor Bello approved Olusuyi’s appointment in an acting capacity.
The position became vacant following the death of Justice Nasir Ajanah on June 29, 2020.
Meanwhile, Governor Bello has approved the appointment of Bayo Olowosegun as the Acting President of the State’s Customary Court of Appeal.
Mr Olowosegun’s appointment also followed the demise of the former occupant of the office, Shaibu Atadoga, who died on June 22, 2020.
