He said Abdulganiyu was officially confirmed as President of the Customary Court of Appeal after being referred to the NJC.


“He is a Muslim. He is also not from Ibadan; he is from Igbeti. But we don’t care here in Oyo State. We follow due process. Here, we do what is right. We don’t look at where you are coming from.

“The Chief Judge is from Ibadan. The President of the Customary Court of Appeal of Oyo State is from Oke Ogun. The Deputy Governor is from Oke Ogun.

“The emergence of Hon. Justice Abdulganiyu followed due process. He was recommended to the NJC as President of the Customary Court of Appeal and he was duly confirmed. So we didn’t short-circuit the process.

“We are keeping with our usual practice. We will give him all the support due to his office and our administration has had a cordial relationship with the judiciary in the past five years,” he said.
