Ogun state judiciary workers will no longer enjoy automatic promotion but will have to go through competitive examinations and intensive interviews before any raise, the chief judge of the state, Olatokunbo Olopade, has said.
Mr. Olopade said this on Monday while addressing magistrates and other judicial workers during a refresher training organised by the National Judicial Institute, NJI, in Abeokuta.
Mr. Olopade implored participants to take the in-service training serious saying the intention of the workshop was to improve the standard and quality of the judiciary and judicial staff in the state.
The chief judge said the four-day workshop was not only to broaden the horizon of the judicial workers but also arranged and packaged to enhance their performance on the jobs.
Mr. Olopade also maintained that learning is a must for all workers – Judges, Magistrates and all – in Ogun State Judiciary adding that continuous education is one of the matters on the agenda of the present administration in the state.
“The result of this will be put to test from time to time in our promotion exercises. There will be no automatic promotion or advancement and only good performance at competitive Promotion Examinations and Intensive interviews will get you elevated or promoted,” he said.
Thirty two magistrates, 25 judicial assistants, 17 secretaries, 20 court registrars, 20 process clerks and 18 bailiffs registered for the programme held at the High Court premises, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
