The Ogun State Customary Court of Appeal has announced plans to embrace the use of digital technology to enhance the Customary Court system in the state.
President of the court, Justice Mobolaji Ojo made this known at the inauguration of a Grade One Customary Court at Ososa in Odogbolu Local Government Area of Ogun State.
Justice Ojo, who commended the traditional ruler of the town, the Gbegande of Ososa, Oba Adetoye Alatishe, for donating the court facility to commemorate his 10th coronation anniversary, said the gesture would help to uplift justice delivery at the grassroots level.
He gave the assurance that a technology-driven Court that would be deeply committed to the preservation of cultural heritage would be put in place for the benefit of the people.
Justice Ojo had earlier in Abeokuta, sworn-in three newly appointed Presidents of the Customary Courts of Appeal charging them not only to be firm and resolute but humane and fair in the discharge of their duties
He advised the appointees, Mr. Enitan Fadina, Mr. Olayinka Ojo and Mrs. Olasunkanmi Lala to treat others in the court panels with respect and understanding, bearing in mind that the Customary Court was essentially a court of facts and common sense.
