An Assessor with the Delta State Family Court, Mr Michael Odiah has described the emergence of Justice Theresa Diai and Justice Patience Elumeze as Delta Chief Judge, and President, Customary Court of Appeal respectively, as history making.

Odiah who stated this shortly after the administration of Oath of Office on the duo by the State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa on Tuesday, noted that this day will forever be remembered by decades of future generations.

In his words, “If history is to have a seat in our schools today, this would be a great day to be remembered, but as God may have it, without the walls of a classroom, this day will forever be remembered, because this is the first time two industrious and eloquent women would head the two tiers of the Delta state Judiciary at the same time, and this is coming at the right time”.
