The Lagos State Government on Sunday announced the launch of an online platform where lawyers, investors and the general public can have access to all the laws of the State.
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 in the country.
He noted that 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.
He said: “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.”
The Commissioner encouraged lawyers and the entire public to visit the site to view the laws.
He added that the online platform would enable people to search, view and download the laws of the state anywhere in the world by just the click of a button.
Other features available on the site, according to Kazeem, is that online users will not need to upload all the 233 (Two Hundred and Thirty-Three) Laws, but would be able to purchase and download only the Laws relevant to them.
