Lagos Launches Website on State Laws
The Lagos State Government has announced the launch of an online platform where lawyers, investors and the public can have access to all the laws of the State.
Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, who announced that the hard back copies of the laws would be complimented with an online digital version in conformity with modern day trends, said the decision became imperative owing to the need to encourage easy access to the state laws, especially by investors on the legal framework available to invest in the state thereby boosting employment opportunities.
The State’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem, in a statement said the digital platform which can be accessed via www.laws.lagosstate.gov.ng , was the first of its kind and another eloquent testimony to the tradition of excellence which Lagos is known for.
He said the online platform was in fulfillment of the obligation of the State Government to create easy access to the State laws thereby promoting accountability and responsibility, and enabling investors to make informed decisions about their investments in the state. “This project is geared towards the commitment of the administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to drive governance and administration of justice in the state through innovation and information technology.”
