The Judiciary of Delta State desires to sustain the regime of the rule of law, which is sine qua non to the stability of any society. The law plays a vital role in any democratic setting, and when the law is certain and effective, and is applied expeditiously without discrimination, it possesses an extraordinary capacity to expand the frontiers of individual rights and liabilities. The rule of law protects the rights of individuals and makes the claim of such rights possible. This is the vision of the Judiciary of Delta State because it desires growth and development. The basic elements of modern market economy and industry are founded in law, and that is the core of democracy. Without the rule of law major economic institutions would be frustrated and they will crumble.
The Judiciary of Delta State sees its responsibility as a very important assignment. Accordingly, it has in place a systematic strategy for strengthening the integrity and capacity of the justice sector. Recently a Law Reform Committee was set up to reform the Civil Procedure Rules of the State High Court. The reform made a critical analysis of the prevailing situation in the justice sector and put into serious consideration the elements that cause delays in the sector, which invariably create untold hardship and poverty to the citizens who go to court to seek justice. The reform is geared towards speedy dispensation of justice and poverty alleviation. The priorities of the policy in the reform reflect the Millennium Development Goals, which is effective administration of justice and reduction of poverty. The rules set goals that would enhance speedy dispensation of justice, and the reform takes a step by step systematic approach to meet the various tasks and targets set to accomplish the task such as the responsibilities of the litigants, their counsel, the judicial officers and all stakeholders at every point in time. All are geared towards the policy of speedy dispensation of justice and poverty alleviation.
