The inauguration of the Board of the Lagos state Law Reform
Commission is a major step towards deepening democracy and the rule of law. It
is a widely acknowledged fact that all modern and civilized societies thrive on
the quality of laws which regulates and guide the actions of government,
organizations, individuals and institutions.
The dynamics of the law relative to time and circumstances
however demands that such laws are revisited periodically to ensure their
relevance and effectiveness.
This Commission has the statutory mandate to facilitate the
process of reviewing our laws with a view to making appropriate recommendations
for the repeal or amendment of such laws or provisions that have become
obsolete and bring them in tune with current realities.
This responsibility is very crucial particularly for us in
achieving our goal of creating an enabling environment for investors,
entrepreneurs and making our State globally competitive.
Since 2012, when the first Board was inaugurated, the
Commission has made commendable progress including the compilation of the State
laws which was presented recently. The Commission is also working to create an
electronic portal that will provide access to our laws online from anywhere in
the world.
This is a major project which the new Board has a
responsibility to deliver in record time. It is very vital to the success of
our drive to attract investors to our State.
As with all our previous appointments, members of the Board
have been carefully selected based on merit, experience and knowledge of the
law. I therefore have absolute confidence in your ability to deliver on the
Commission’s mandate.
While congratulating you on your appointments, I look
forward to your recommendations on inputs from and consultations with all
stakeholders.
