US Moves To Strengthen Justice System In Nigeria

The Director, International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INLEA) of the United States Embassy, Nigeria, Mr Jason Smith, has said that they are strengthening the justice system sector in Kaduna, Nasarawa and Plateau states for a stable and secure Nigeria.

He said this yesterday in Abuja at a workshop to build the capacity of Court Administration and Case Management Projects, for judicial officers in the three states, organised by the Public and Private Development Centre (PPDC) with sponsorship from the US government.

He said the US government is working for a functional justice system in Nigeria and to increase access to justice, adding that a stable Nigeria will translate into a stable Africa and the world at large.

Smith said it is the desire of the United States for a true justice system in Nigeria and that if the project succeeds in Kaduna, Nasarawa and Plateau states, they will scale it up to other states.
