Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, says the Federal Government is working round the clock to ensure that the legal system reflects the nation’s existence in view of dynamism and contemporary realities.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations to the AGF, Dr. Umar Gwandu and made available to newsmen in Abuja.
According to the statement, Malami notes that Nigeria’s legislative and legal framework was developed from inherited laws traced to the period of colonialism.
The statement reads, “Generally speaking, we are not only changing/amending the obsolete laws, but coming up with new ones that are dynamic, that can stand the test of time and be dynamic.
” We will ensure that all laws that deserves to be reviewed are reviewed”.
While congratulating Nigerians on the occasion of the 60th Independence Celebration, the Minister explains that government is committed to the fulfilment of its campaign promises.
