The Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has challenged successful Anambra people to join the State Government in the development of the State as US Based Billionaire medical doctor, Godwin Maduka hands-over Judiciary Complex.
The Governor spoke through his Commissioner for Environment, Mr. Mike Okonkwo during the commissioning of a High Court complex in Umuchukwu built by Anambra American-based Medical doctor, Godwin Maduka, encouraging other successful Anambra people to join the State Government in development.
He said this would reduce unemployment among the youths, restiveness among young people and other social vices in the society and also commended Dr. Maduka for his continuous support to the development of the State, urging him not to rest in his oars.
The Chief Judge of the State, Justice Ijem Onwuamegbu, described the complex as magnificent edifice, saying they were more than eager to take over the High Court for the use of the people to ensure quick dispensation of justice for the ordinary man in the State.
Justice Onwuamegbu says “we immensely want to thank and appreciate the donor, Dr Godwin Maduka, while I use this medium to call on other privileged sons and daughters of the state to emulate him in building such human oriented projects for the development of our dear state and Nigeria at large”.
“Today will remain memorable in my life to see this dream come true,” says Dr Maduka, while handing over the High court to Anambra state Judiciary.
He stressed that it has been his desire to put in his community those things that made the white people look down on the Africans.
He said one of such things included justice to the common man even as he recalled how his people used to travel as far as Ekwulobia, Onitsha and even Awka in search of justice, also pointing out the cost implication when the poor and the down trodden seek for justice, “they naturally leave their fate in the hands of God”.
Recall that sometime in 2010, he built and handed over a Magistrate court to the State.
The US based medical doctor said the construction of the judiciary building in his community was to bring justice nearer to the people.
Also present at the occasion were the member representing Orumba South Constituency in Anambra State House of Assembly and about 14 traditional rulers from both Orumba North and South Local Government Areas.
The Court is described as one of the bests in Nigeria with judge’s residence, also the first of its kind to be donated by an individual in Nigeria.
Maduka had equally in the past build Police Station and Civil Defense office in his community and other projects he has provided his people.
