The Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General, Mr. Moyosore Onigbanjo SAN expressed pride and satisfaction towards the high performance of the State counsels and staff of the ministry in both the senior and junior category, stating that due to the quality of work put forth, the ministry has helped the State Government in upholding the rule of law as well as delivering adequate justice to residents in line with the T.H.E.M.E.S agenda of Mr. Governor.

In her words; “Everyone has their bit to contribute regardless of how big or little it may seem. The service delivery of the State counsel is just as important as the service delivery of the cleaners and security personnels in the Ministry”.

Speaking further, Ms. Shitta-Bey applauded the Directors of the Ministry as well as members of staff for their patience, diligence and dedication to public service delivery noting that sometimes it can be extremely demanding, either mentally or emotionally but urged them to be diligent, transparent, and accountable in the discharge of their duties.
