The Ekiti State Chief Judge, Justice John Adeyeye has inducted the Staff of the Judiciary who would be in charge of the E-affidavit.
Adeyeye who was represented by justice Lekan Ogunmoye said deploying developmental technology in all judicial divisions across Ekiti State, was another giant stride in furtherance of the Chief Judges’ administration in taking Ekiti State to an enviable height.
Justice Ogunmoye who is the chairman of Ekiti State Judiciary Committee on ICT said, the committee was set up to fashion out ways in which Ekiti Judiciary will be ICT compliant in line with the global best practices.
He added that manual affidavit with this development has become a thing of the past in Ekiti, explaining that the essence of e-affidavit is to ensure it can be deposed to, anywhere in the world without mixing personalities through e-verification technology.
Justice Ogunmoye said efforts are now on top gear to include e-process of court and e-probate to the list of innovations.
He said all the objectives could not be achieved if members of staff who are major drivers of the innovation are not involved and carried along, he urged them to put every machinery in place to ensure the success of the project which he described as a gradual process, he concluded.
