The Lagos State Government yesterday launched an online platform where lawyers, investors and the public can access its Laws. The Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Adeniji Kazeem, in a statement yesterday, said the digital platform which can be accessed via www.laws.lagosstate.gov.ng, is the first of its kind and “another testimony to the tradition of excellence which Lagos is known for”.
He said the online platform was in fulfillment of the government’s obligation to create easy access to the state’s laws, thereby promoting accountability, responsibility and enabling investors to make informed decisions about their investments. Kazeem said: “This project is geared towards the commitment of the administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to drive governance and administration of justice through innovation and information technology.”
The Commissioner added that the online platform would enable people to search, view and download the laws anywhere in the world.
