CHAIRMAN’S WELCOME MESSAGE

The major business of the Nigerian Law Reform Commission is to keep under review all Federal Laws with a view to their systematic development and reform in consonance with prevailing norms of the Nigerian society.

The Commission has always regarded the public as its most important strategic partner in this business andd has therefore always placed a very high premium on public communication and consultation as an indispensable key component of the Law reform process.

The Commission realizes that the need for wide public participation in the law reform process is even greater now that we are in a democratic dispensation and has therefore set as part of its immediate action plan the enhancement of its public communication and consultation capability.

Since I assumed office as Chairman of this Commission in January 2003, I have observed that there is still much room for improvement on the level of public perception and awareness of the work of this Commission and I have spared no effort in reaching out to the public through the print and electronic media in order to bring about the desired improvement.

I am therefore highly delighted that this “Corporate Profile” has been put together to enlighten the public about the Commission, its mission, vision, core values, performance indicators and projects among other things.
I have no doubt that it will serve that purpose adequately.

 

HON. JUSTICE O.O. SOMOLU
CHAIRMAN
