Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has charged the Federal Ministry of Justice to build a justice system that will not only dispense justice but also foster a sense of trust and confidence in the citizens.
The governor who spoke yesterday at a three-day retreat for top management of the Federal Ministry of Justice held in Lagos affirmed that the success of the ministry would be measured by the positive impact felt by the ordinary Nigerians seeking justice.
He advised the ministry to adopt a holistic approach that addresses not only legal processes but also the social and economic factors influencing the administration of justice in Nigeria.
Governor Sanwo-Olu, who commended the attorney-general of the federation and minister of justice, Prince Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), for his steadfast commitment to advancing justice in Nigeria, said the theme of the retreat, ‘Enhancing Systems and Structures in the Federal Ministry of Justice for Effective Justice Sector Service Delivery,’ underscores the pivotal role that the justice system plays in the well-being of our society.
He averred that “a robust and efficient justice system forms the bedrock of a just and equitable society.”
He said, “The challenges we face in our justice sector demand a collective and strategic response. Our duty as stewards of justice is to ensure that the structures in place are not only resilient but also adaptable to the evolving needs of our society.
‘’This requires a careful examination of our existing systems, identification of gaps, and a commitment to implementing reforms that will enhance the delivery of justice services to the Nigerian people.’’
Earlier, the attorney-general of the federation and minister of justice, Prince Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), said Lagos State government, for many years has continued to set the pace in the provision of innovative access to justice services, as well as the development of creative reforms aimed at improving the system of administration of justice, generally.
Fagbemi said the Ministry of Justice is critical to the agenda of the government to build a strong economy and combat corruption and insecurity.
