The Kogi State House of Assembly has confirmed the appointment of Justice Henry Adebola Olusiyi as the substantive chief judge of the state.

The Assembly also confirmed Hon. Justice John Bayo Olowosegun, as President of Kogi State Customary Court of Appeal.

Both of them were confirmed during the house plenary on Tuesday.

Saga Gist recalls that, Hon. Justice Henry Adebola Olusiyi came on board as the Acting Chief Judge of Kogi State after the sudden demise of the former office holder, Late Hon. Justice Nasiru Ajanah who died on 28th June 2020.

It could also be recalled that Justice Olowosegun replaced late Justice Ibrahim Shaibu Atadoga, who also died in June 2020.

In a letter addressed to the Assembly by the State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, Speaker of the house, Prince Mathew Kolawole said Justice Olusiyi was recommended by the National Judicial Council, (NJC) for the appointment.

He said Olusiyi’s name was nominated for screening and confirmation in line with section 271 (1) of the 1999 constitution as amended.

After 10 minutes of screening, Bello Hassan Balogun, the majority leader representing Ajaokuta State Constituency, moved a motion that Justice Olusiyi and Justice Olowosegun should take a bow and leave.

He said this was necessary given their track record in the administration of justice.

His motion was seconded by the member representing Igalamela Odolu Constituency, Barr. Cosmos Atabor.

Prince Kolawole, who announced the confirmation, directed the clerk to inform the governor of the house resolution.

Hon Justice Henry Adebola Olusiyi hails from Igbaruku-Okeri in Yagba West Local Government Area Kogi State.

He was born on 11th January 1956. He started his educational career earlier enough at St. Michael’s Primary School, Kaduna from January 1962 to December 1966 and finished his primary education at E.C.W.A Primary School, Mopa Kogi State between January 1967 and December 1968.

Meanwhile, the house has sworn in Hon. Atule Egbunu as the lawmaker representing Ibaji State Constituency.

Egbunu replaced John Abba who died in June 2020.
