The immediate past Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has sent a warm message of congratulations to The Honorable Justice Chidi Nwaoma Uwa, on her swearing-in as a Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria on Monday by the Chief Justice of Nigeria.

Dr Ikpeazu expressed that the sterling and very distinguished judicial career of Justice Uwa has berthed at the topmost Court in Nigeria, Onyebuchi Ememanka spokesman to the former governor said in a statement on Tuesday.

Quoting ex-governor Ikpeazu, the statement said, “Justice Uwa is coming to the Supreme Court fully prepared. She has traversed the entire gamut of the Nigerian Judiciary, from the Magistracy of the old Imo State, to the High Court of Abia State, to the Court of Appeal, delivering landmark judgements and contributing her quota to the development of our Judiciary”.

Dr Ikpeazu notes that by this elevation, Justice Uwa has made history as the very first woman from Abia State to sit on the Bench of the Supreme Court of Nigeria. She is also the second Abian, after the Late Justice I F Ogbuagu, to be so elevated.

This elevation, Dr Ikpeazu continues, is a clear testament to the truism that hardwork, honesty, integrity, brilliance and focus will ultimately be rewarded.

The former Governor is confident that the new Supreme Court Justice will bring to bear on her new assignment, those virtues of integrity and strict adherence to the rule of law, that have defined her excellent judicial career.

Dr Ikpeazu, on behalf of his family, sends his warmest congratulations to Justice Uwa and prays the good Lord to bless and guide her as she takes her well-deserved seat at the revered Bench of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
