Ogun Deputy Governor, Engr. Salako-Oyedele to Unveil Chrisland University's College of Law Effigy of Justitia on Thursday
The Ogun State Deputy Governor, Engr. Noimot Salako-Oyedele, will on Thursday, April 14, 2022 unveil the justitia effigy of the College of Law, Chrisland University.
The justitia effigy projects the form of a woman who is standing or sitting and typically dressed in a toga-like robe, sometimes barefooted with her hair either flowing over her shoulders, braided in a bun or around her head. She holds a balance, or a two-tray scale in one hand and a sword in the other. Usually, the scale is in the left hand and the sword in the right. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes, she also wears a blindfold over her eyes.
The effigy represents impartiality and objectivity of the law, the obligation of the law, enforcement, and respect. It symbolizes that justice stands by its decision and ruling, and is able to take action.
The Vice-Chancellor, Chrisland University, Professor Chinedum Peace Babalola (FAS)is expected to lead other frontline officers of the institution to receive the Deputy Governor.
