Speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly, CRSHA, Hon. John Gaul Lebo has said that the Assembly is set to domesticate the Administration of Justice Sector Reform Act into the laws of the state.

The Act is a Law of the National Assembly enacted in May 2015 by the Jonathan Administration. It provides for the Administration of Criminal Justice in Federal Courts in Nigeria.

As part of their recess part time, a few interested members of the Cross River House of Assembly convened in Abuja this week, to study the Act and have concluded on the need to domesticate the law in the state.

The Speaker who said a private member bill will be presented on the floor once the House resumes, added that the Cross River state version of the law will address the justice sector reform issues requiring legislative framework.

“In the course of our study, it was obvious that there’s an urgent need for the 8th Assembly of the CRSHA to enact similar Legislation. The Law will principally provide, a policy, institutional and legal regulatory regime required to ensure a coherent and cohesive justice sector.

“Our version of the Law will address the justice sector reform issues requiring legislative framework. The Law will be one of the best legislations of the current watch.” The Speaker concluded.
