Lagos State House of Assembly has confirmed Justice Kazeem Alogba as the Chief Judge of the state.
Alogba was confirmed at the plenary session held today (Tuesday) at the Assembly Complex, Alausa, Ikeja.
The CJ who came to the Assembly with some of his judiciary staff gave account of his educational and professional career.
It would be recalled that the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, appointed Justice Kazeem Alogba as the acting chief judge of the state in June this year.
The development came up as Justice Opeyemi Oke retired from the state judiciary on June 10, 2019, after spending the statutory number of years in service.
Prior to his appointment Justice Kazeem Alogba was the most senior of the 58 Honourable Justices in the State Judiciary next to the out-going Chief Judge, and had chaired the Committee on the review of the High Court Civil Procedure Rules, which culminated in the new High Court of Lagos (Civil Procedure) Rules of 2019 that came into force on 31 January 2019.
