Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has urged the newly sworn-in Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice of the state, Barrister Umeh Kalu, to continue to stabilize the state’s judicial system.
Giving him the charge after he had subscribed to the oaths of office and allegiance, Governor Ikpeazu implored him to guide the government out of anything that will bring the state in conflict with the constitution.
He said that as someone conversant with the system, he expects him to discharge his assignment creditably and promised that government will give him the maximum cooperation that he needs to excel.
Responding, the new Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice promised to abide by the oath he has taken as well as to contribute his quota to the development of the state.
Until his present appointment, Kalu had served in that position for three consecutive times and was the immediate past Commissioner of Justice under former Governor T.A. Orji.
