Gov. Ben Ayade swears in acting CJ

Prof. Ben Ayade

the Cross River State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade, on Tuesday swore in Justice Michael Edem as the acting Chief Judge of the state.

A statement on Tuesday said the swearing-in took place at the Cross River State Executive Chambers in Calabar.

Justice Edem’s swearing as acting Chief Judge followed the recent death of Justice Okoi Ikpi Itam, who was the substantive Chief Judge of Cross River State.

Ayade said Justice Edem’s swearing-in as acting Chief Judge was consistent with Section 271(4) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The governor described the acting CJ as a man “who by his looks alone inspires confidence that Cross River State is already getting set for growth.”

“We are witnessing the ascension into power of a man with energy, great understanding of literature and poetry of life, an impartial judge,” Ayade said.

The governor enjoined Justice Edem to be guided  by his declaration and oath of office that “he will not allow his personal interest to influence his official decisions or actions that will not be in the interest of the common man.”

Responding, the newly sworn-in acting Chief Judge pledged to immediately set to work, adding that he would apply speed in the discharge of his new responsibilities.

“I am not new to the confidence reposed in me and I am undaunted because I think with due respect to modesty, I can always do it and do it well,” Justice Edem said.
