Courts in Katsina State have commenced virtual proceedings.

The new procedure comes amid the guidelines issued by the National Judicial Council (NJC) for court sittings during the COVID- 19 period.

The State Chief Judge, Justice Musa Danladi, who spoke shortly after the commencement of the new procedure said the virtual court proceedings would hasten the dispensation of justice in the state.

Justice Danladi noted that as the global economy and governance have gone digital, it is imperative for the judiciary to embrace the trend in its operation.

This comes five days after the state government reiterated its commitment to support the judiciary in carrying out its constitutional responsibilities.
