Deputy chairman of the National Judicial Council (NJC), Justice Mary Peter-Odili and the president of the Court of Appeal (PCA), Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem, have called on judges in the country to be diligent and committed to duty in view of their strategic roles in the sustenance of the nation’s democracy.

Justices Peter-Odili and Dongban-Mensem spoke in Abuja at a dinner and night of tributes held by the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) in honour of Justice Kenneth Ikechukwu Amadi, the first judge of the court to be elevated to the Court of Appeal.

Peter-Odili, who led a number of justices of the Supreme Court to the event described Justice Amadi as a diligent and committed judge.

Describing him as a brother, Peter-Odili recalled how Amadi, as the chairman of the Mbaise branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), honoured her late father by naming the branch’s Bar Centre after him (her late father).

The Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice John Tsoho, who described Amadi as an ambassador the NICN at the Court of Appeal, urged him to justify the confidence reposed in him and advised that he should not detach himself from his root, being the NICN.

Responding, Amadi said he was humbled by the array of persons and dignitaries, including Justices of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal, Senior Advocates of Nigeria, among others, who turned up for the event.
