President Buhari Renews Calls For Creation Of Special Courts

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday renewed his call for the establishment of special courts to enhance speedy administration and dispensation of justice.
Speaking in Abuja at the opening of the 2019 biennial All Nigeria Judges Conference of Superior Courts, the President said: “I will advise that the conference should, in its deliberations, consider how to create an efficient structure for the proposed Special Crimes Courts or the urgent designation of existing courts as special courts with competent and credible judicial officers in order to remove administrative bottlenecks in the judicial process.”

Stating that he and the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Tanko Muhammad have been talking on the challenges facing the judiciary, the President said: “The government has been committed to a number of justice sector reforms such as review of extant laws and enactment of new laws that will improve the lives of Nigerians.

“Additionally, we have worked closely with the Chief Justice of Nigeria to ensure that judicial budgetary allocations are enhanced in view of the needs of the judiciary.

“I have strongly supported the increase in number of judges at High Courts, Appeal Courts and the Supreme Court in order to reduce the burden of the work placed on judicial officers. I will continue to do so.”

He restated his administration’s commitment to the economic revival of the economy by creating an investment-friendly environment, urging the judiciary to key into the plan.

“Economic progress can only be sustained in an atmosphere of the Rule of Law where justice is guaranteed. I must therefore express my hope that this conference will achieve its objective of articulating interventions by which this administration’s drive to improve transparency, security, and the expeditious adjudication of commercial, corruption related crimes including economic and financial crimes matters could be enhanced.”
