The Directorate of Technical Aid Corps (DTAC), has deployed two Justices of the Federatiom to The Gambia to assist the West African nation’s quest for effective judicial service delivery.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the two officers were formally briefed on their new task at the directorate’s headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday.

Dr Yusuf Yakub, the Director-General of the corps, in a brief remark, said that the two Justices – Ruqayat Ayoola and Muhammad Owolabi – were nominated by the Chief Justice of the Federation.

He described the Judges as “some of our best from the Judiciary”.

Yakub reminded the duo that DTAC was established in 1987 to serve as an instrument for soft power diplomacy in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific nations.

“It has, since then, been deploying volunteers to 35 countries.

“We have covered up to 35 countries from inception; currently, we have volunteers in 10 countries and have extended our mandate beyond bilateral relationships.

“We have also gone triangular; we have partnerships with other international organisations and have volunteers with the United Nation Development Programme (UNDP) serving in New York.

“Also, as part of our repositioning drive to meet up with the 4-D Foreign Policy initiatives of President Bola Tinubu, we have extended our tentacles to others countries outside Africa, Caribbean and the Pacific,” he added.

He urged the Judges to serve with dignity when they get to Gambia.

Responding, Justice Owolabi thanked the directorate for the opportunity and promised to make Nigeria proud in Gambia. (NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
