The State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, said the state is the first in the whole of the federation to have a digitalised judicial system.

Abiodun at the launch held at the Judiciary Complex, Kobape, Abeokuta, hinted that the initiative was put together by his administration in collaboration with the US Embassy in Nigeria.

Justice Dipeolu alos said that the case management and scheduling system would enable judges have access to the details of cases assigned to them at touch of a button from either their laptops or mobile phones.

She said, “When the judiciary is filly digitised, each judge will have access to his docket on his laptop/mobile phone.

“Digitisation will also aid quick dispensation of cases, it makes the job of the judge easier with the ripple effect of attracting investors to the state.”

Speaking on behalf of members of the bar, the Chairman of the Sagamu branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Olufemi Adeniyi, said the platform had given lawyers hope of a new dawn in Ogun judicial system.

He condemned attempts by the Federal government in using security agents to intimidate judges in the country, saying “the NBA has resolved to resist any action that will undermine judiciary in Nigeria.”

Adeniyi called for financial autonomy for the judiciary in the state, arguing that, it was not enough for the state to give administrative autonomy to the judiciary.
