Bagudu also recalled that some unforeseen circumstances like the COVID-19 pandemic and the prevailing security challenges, as well as the justice reforms had placed more formidable responsibilities on the judiciary.

While extolling the sterling achievements of the judiciary in the state, he acknowledged the cordial relationship between the three tiers of government and the various security achievements.

He congratulated the new appointees and charged them not to fail the judiciary, the state government and the people of the state.
