REMAIN THE BEACON OF HOPE FOR THE WEAK, GOV. LAWAL CHARGES NEW ZAMFARA KHADIS OF SHARI’A COURT
Governor Dauda Lawal charged the three new Khadis of the State Shari’a Court of Appeal to be honest and committed while discharging their duties.
The Chief Judge of the State swore in three new Khadis of the Zamfara State Shari’a court on Wednesday at the council chambers, government house, Gusau.
A statement by the spokesperson for the Zamfara governor, Sulaiman Bala Idris, said the Sharia courts play a significant role in the state’s legal system.
According to him, the Shari’a courts in Zamfara were expanded in 1999 to handle criminal and other matters and have since been at the forefront of dispensing justice.
During his speech, Governor Dauda Lawal urged the newly appointed Khadis to maintain the integrity of their office.
“I believe your appointment as kadis of the Sharia Court of Appeal is in recognition of your vast experience, Islamic jurisprudential expertise, and commitment to upholding the tenets of Shari’a.
“You have a role to play in ensuring an equitable dispensation of justice to people. Yours is therefore a great trust. As kadis, you should always remember that you will ultimately account for all your judicial decisions before Almighty Allah on the Day of Judgment.”
Furthermore, Governor Lawal tasked the new Khadis with upholding the people’s trust in the Sharia legal system and ensuring that the courts remain a beacon of hope, especially for the vulnerable.
“In line with the Rescue Mission of my administration, I assure you that we shall remain committed to the implementation of sharia across the state, both in terms of legal adjudication and undertaking projects.
“With your swearing in today, you should bear in mind that you have a great task of maintaining the integrity of our Sharia system. Justice must be done to all manners of people irrespective of their political, economic, and social status.”
