The Lagos State House of Assembly has confirmed Hon. (Justice) Kazeem Olanrewaju Alogba as the Chief Judge of the state.
Alogba, who had been serving as the Acting Chief Judge of the state for some months, was the most senior of the 58 justices in the state judiciary.
Speaker Mudashiru Obasa on Tuesday said that the Chief Judge had proven to be capable of the office and that it was a mere formality for him to appear before the lawmakers for confirmation.
The House confirmed Alogba as the Chief Judge of the state through a voice vote supervised by the Speaker.
Alogba, who was born in 1960, attended Holy Trinity Primary School and spent four years in the school before proceeding to Ikorodu High School.
He later proceeded to Baptist Academy for Advanced levels and then went to the University of Lagos, where he read law and graduated in 1981.
He started working at the Federal Ministry of Justice in 1982 before he left for private service and worked in law firms as a lawyer before joining the service of the Lagos State Government as a judge.
