Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has congratulated the new Grand Kadi of the state’s Shariah Court of Appeal, Justice Abdullateef Kamaldeen.
Justice Kamaldeen has now been confirmed as the substantive Grand Kadi of Kwara State by the National Judicial Commission (NJC). He was first appointed the Acting Grand Kadi on February 16, 2022 after his predecessor, Justice Muhammad Ola AbdulKadir retired from the service.
In a statement on Saturday, the governor said the new Grand Kadi comes to the job highly recommended owing to his personal accomplishments and his noble ancestry traced to great, pious scholars.
“We are convinced that the Grand Kadi will always make the state proud as the head of the Kwara State Shariah Court of Appeal. The confirmation of his appointment comes as no surprise, given his pedigree as a disciplined and well-versed legal officer with impressive leadership credentials.
“We pray Allah, exalted is He, to guide and protect the new Grand Kadi, give him good health, and ease his affairs as he takes up this important role,” the statement said.
