Ambode Official BNThe Lagos State Government on Sunday announced the launch of an online platform where lawyers, investors and the public could have access to all the laws of the state.

Information on the launch is contained in a statement issued by Adeniji Kazeem, the state’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice.

The statement quoted Kazeem as saying the digital platform could be accessed via laws.lagosstate.gov.ng.

He stated that the online platform was in fulfillment of the obligation of the state government to create easy access to the laws of the state.

Kazeem added that the platform would promote accountability and responsibility, as well as enable investors to make informed decisions about their investments in the state.

“This project is geared toward making the administration of Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode committed to drive governance and administration of justice in the state through innovation and information technology.” he said.

The commissioner encouraged lawyers and the public to visit the site to view the laws and make their purchases.

He added that the online platform would enable people to search, view and download the laws of the state anywhere in the world at a click of a button.

“Online users would not need to download all the 233 laws, but would be able to purchase and download only the laws relevant to them,” he said.

Kazeem said payment cards including MasterCard, Visa, Verve and Interswitch had all been integrated to the online platform.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Ambode recently tasked the state’s Ministry of Justice and the Law Reforms Commission to make the laws of the state available online.

He gave the task at the recent launch of the 2015 Revised Laws of the state.

Ambode said the decision became imperative to encourage easy access to the state laws, especially by investors on the legal framework available to invest in the state, thereby boosting employment opportunities.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    You idiots need to understand certain things. Not all Lagosians are Lawyers. If I may quote you, Don’t get harassed again. Lagos State Law are now available online. Nowhere, did you mention pay to view Lagos Law online. Mr, Governor, if you want the people who elected you into office to know about the Laws of their State, Make it free for everybody to access online, Dont try to trick your Citizens to pay for something that should have been free for them in the first place. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. You are not as smart as you think you are. Mr, Governot Take a sit.

    Direct your sales pitch to all Lawyers practicing Law in Lagos State period. Stop lying. A word is enough for the wise.

    Honestly, just when you think you’ve heard and seen it all, Naija finds a new way to shock you.

    The people of Lagos state elect these house members and Governor to office, and pay them a salary from public funds raised through taxes. And now, these so called public servants want their citizens to PAY to see the laws of they’ve crafted for their state?! Some of these laws were passed in the 70s o! Wonders shall never end.

    Ambode is heading a pack of greedy thieves who want to charge $5.00 or N1000 to see EACH LAW! And they are so stealth with their thievery and indifferent to Nigerians suffering, that they wait to introduce this crap while most people are distracted with the fuel crisis. They know that if Lagosians don’t protest this with a loud voice and right away, it will probably remain that way forever. And noone knows where this money is going to.

    Meanwhile, keep in mind that the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is freely available online at NO CHARGE here: nigeria-law.org/ConstitutionOfTheFederalRepublicOfNigeria.htm#State_Executive

    Everyone who reads this needs to complain loudly to Lagos State, Ambode and every rep they can find on Twitter. It needs to trend so this nonsense gets nipped in the bud asap. Bloody thieves!
