Lagosians and residents, you can now access all the laws of Lagos state.
Following Governor Ambode’s request that the state’s Ministry of Justice and the Law Reforms Commission make available online, the laws of the state, the Lagos State Government yesterday announced the launch of an online platform where lawyers, investors and the public could have access to all the laws of the state.
According to a statement released by the state’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Adeniji Kazeem, the digital platform could be accessed via www.laws.lagosstate.gov.ng.
Kazeem stated that the online platform was in fulfilment of the obligation of the state government to create easy access to the laws of the state.
The platform would promote accountability and responsibility, as well as enable investors to make informed decisions about their investments in the state, he added.
He said “This project is geared toward making the administration of Gov. AkinwunmiAmbode committed to drive governance and administration of justice in the state through innovation and information technology.’”
Encouraging lawyers and the public to visit the site to view the laws and make their purchases, the commissioner added that the online platform would enable people to search, view and download the laws of the state anywhere in the world at a click of a button.
He said: “Online users would not need to upload all the 233 laws, but would be able to purchase and download only the laws relevant to them”.
Kazeem said payment cards including MasterCard, Visa, Verve and Interswitch had all been integrated to the online platform.
