Soludo Receives State Law Review Committee, Calls For Digitalizing Anambra Laws To Achieve International Acceptability 

The Anambra State Law Review Committee has concluded its review.  

The Committee which was set up by the immediate past administration paid a courtesy call on Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, to officially submit its report. 

The Committee was led by the former State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Dr. Uju Nworgu.  

Receiving the Committee, Soludo also commended their efforts on the onerous task which they successfully discharged, emphasizing the significance of digitizing Anambra State Laws. 

“Part of what we would like to achieve is in line with our vision of making Anambra the digital tribe of Nigeria.  

“We will liaise with our learned justices, the Chief Judge as well as the State House of Assembly to ensure that these requirements of hardcopy and so on and so forth will be a basic investment.

“By the time ndi Anambra gets acclimatized with the digital culture we are striving to imbibe, they would never want to go back to analogue”, Governor Soludo noted. 

On her part, Dr Uju Nwogu pointed out that the 1979 constitution refers to removing some of the laws which she described as edits but the committee decided to convert them into laws and a host of other things they did in the laws. 

“It was quite a tedious job because the laws are so many but we did all of that and at the end of the day, we have also completed and concluded the revision. 

“In the process of revision in accordance with the Revision Law 2019, we have two stages. The first stage is preparing the law, the second stage is to publish and print the law. This is the provision of the law.

“They finally completed the assignment and have come to report to us, myself and the Governor inclusive that they have also completed their task.
