Oyo state Governor has established the Family court for oyo state today.
The Governor said this delivering his message at the commissioning of the Oyo State Family Court at Iyaganku, Ibadan, the state capital.
Engineer Makinde said that the commission of the Family Court was one of his administration’s roadmap for rapid development, most especially as it concerns strengthening the laws on child’s rights act, having said that the Ministry of Women Affairs’ Rapid Response Team and the Judiciary would work along to guarantee that all matters involving child welfare are duly carried out in the new Court.
Seyi Makinde said, "Today, we commissioned the Family Court for Oyo State. Although the Child’s Rights Act, 2003 was domesticated in Oyo State in 2006, the Family Court where the rights of children will be enforced was not established until now.
I commended the judiciary led by the Honourable Justice Muktar Abimbola, the Honourable Chief Judge of Oyo State for this laudable achievement."

He added that, “One of the points made in our roadmap to accelerated development in Oyo State, 2019 to 2023, is to play our part in strengthening the laws around the Child Rights Act, 2003. Although this act was domesticated in Oyo State in 2006, the court where this law was to be enforced was not established."

“With the establishment of this court, the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Inclusion will be better positioned to carry out their responsibilities. I will therefore want to use this opportunity to call on the good people of Oyo State to not hesitate to contact the Oyo Ministry of Women Affairs Rapid Response Team (OYOMWA-RRT) should they see any child’s rights being violated."
