President Bola Tinubu has charged  the judiciary to embark on reforms that would ensure a functional justice system, which will create a rapidly growing economy, guarantee basic human and political rights of individuals.

The President noted that, a lot can be achieved when institutions of government; Executive, Legislature and Judiciary, unite to acknowledge their challenges and brainstorm with a view to proffer solutions to the problems bedeviling Nigeria.

Tinubu gave the charge Wednesday when declaring open the National Summit on Justice, 2024, Abuja.

The president who was represented at the event by Vice President Kashim Shettima, in a statement by his media aide, Stanley Nkwocha, urged the judiciary to align its activities within the tenets of his administration’s Renewed Hope Agenda, particularly as they relate “to the priorities on inclusivity, fairness, rule of law, and anti-corruption stance, among other things”.

Noting that his administration had pledged to be impartial and adhere to constitutional principles, Tinubu said the Summit availed institutions in the justice sector “with an opportunity to push boundaries by identifying needed system changes and critical reforms that would allow Nigerians to reap the benefits of huge investments in the sector.”


Delivering the president’s address at the event, Shettima explained that the federal government is determined to implement its policies and promises made to Nigerians for a renewed hope, through the instrumentality of the “law and the dictates of justice to create opportunities for our people”.
