Osun State Governor Gboyega Oyetola on Friday presented official vehicles to the High Court judges in the state.
It was gathered that the last time Judges in the State were given official vehicles was 12 years ago.
Oyetola said the decision to present cars to the judges was to ensure “a high-level of comfort for the members of the judiciary, who are the last hope of the common man.”
At the event held at the Government House, Okefia in Osogbo, the state capital, the governor affirmed his administration’s respect for absolute autonomy for the three arms of government in the state.
Oyetola stated that the three arms of government had been enjoying “uncompromised cordial relationship to collectively transform the state and deliver development.”
He maintained that his administration had ensured that no arm deprives the other for personal interests or gains, adding that there is no influence from either of the three arms since his assumption of office.
According to him, “To be honest, the three arms of government in Osun have been particularly very autonomous. No one deprives the other for its personal interest. There is no influence from either the executive, legislature or judiciary.
“As we all know, in our state, there is a cordial relationship between the three arms of government. That is the way it should be. No arm of government can do it alone without the support of the other.
“So, autonomy in Osun among the three arms of government is so perfect. Autonomy is not restricted to financial aspect alone, but a wider scope that encompasses a lot of things as we do in Osun to ensure that no one influences the other. That is why we have been having it so good.”
