GOV. FRANCIS NWIFURU TELLS JUDGES TO STAY AWAY FROM CORRUPT POLITICIANS

The governor of Ebonyi State, Francis Nwifuru has advised Nigerian judges to keep a distance from corrupt politicians and remain upright at all times.

Such politicians he said are capable of destroying their reputation and influencing them in such a way that may negatively affect the dispensation of justice.
Governor Nwifuru gave the charge on Sunday at Umuogudu- Akpu Ngbo in Ohaukwu Local Government Area during a Thanksgiving Mass organised by Justice Obande Ogbuinya to mark his elevation to the Supreme Court.

The governor described Justice Ogbuinya as a man with vast experience in the legal profession and an embodiment of humility and discipline and wished him success in his new position.
