CALABAR: Protests Continue As New Acting CJ Fails To Resume After 48 Hours

In Breaking News, National News, Reports

By Jonathan Ugbal

More than 48 hours after he was sworn in as acting Chief Judge of the High Court of Cross River State, Justice Eyo Effiom Ita is yet to resume at his office.

This is due to an ongoing protest by lawyers and concerned residents who are demanding that a substantive Chief Judge be appointed.

Since Monday, no judicial activity has gone on due to the protests.

Before Monday, the State had gone 48 days without a Chief Judge following the expiry of the acting tenure of Justice Maurice Eneji.

This means no administrative action has been taken in the judiciary in the past 50 days with hundreds of cases currently unassigned.

The lawyers are currently at the entrance of the judicial headquarters waiting for some senior members of the bar to address them.
