Justice Henry Olusuyi has been appointed as the new Chief Judge of Kogi State by Governor Yahaya Bello.
The new Chief Justice was sworn in at a ceremony held on Wednesday in Lokoja, the State capital.
Justice Olusuyi took his oath of office and was sworn in at about 10:35 am during a ceremony attended by Governor Yahaya Bello, the state Deputy Governor, Edward Onaja; Speaker of the House of Assembly, Matthew Kolawole and other top government functionaries.
It will be recalled Governor Bello had earlier appointed Justice Olusuyi in acting capacity five days ago to occupy the position left vacant by the death of Justice Nasir Ajanah on June 29.
Meanwhile, in a similar development, Governor Bello has also approved the appointment of Bayo Olowosegun as the acting President of the state’s Customary Court of Appeal.
Mr Olowosegun’s appointment comes after the death of Shaibu Atadoga who occupied the office until his demise on June 22, 2020.
