Judicial officers have been tasked to work towards the creation of Special Courts to assist in the speedy administration and dispensation of justice in the country.
This was the position of President Muhammadu Buhari at the opening of the 2019 biennial All Nigeria Judges Conference of Superior Courts today in Abuja.
Buhari said he was aware of the challenges facing the judiciary, over which he has had discussions with the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Ibrahim Muhammad.
The President said his administration was committed to the review of extant laws and enactment of new ones that will improve the lives of Nigerians, revival of the country’s economy, as well as fighting corruption and insecurity.
He solicited the support of the judiciary in this regard, noting that he was open to recommendations on how to enhance the ability of the judiciary in handling election cases.
