Obsolete laws, impediment to prosecution – Ortom

Governor Samuel Ortom

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom says the war against crimes will not be easily won with outdated legislations still in place.

Governor Ortom stated this at Benue Hotels, Makurdi while declaring open a two-day seminar on implementation of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act of the Federal Government, domesticated in the state by his administration.

He noted that Nigeria’s Procedural Law comprising Criminal Procedure Act and Criminal Procedure Code in the South and North respectively, enacted 40 years ago, could not be effectively used to prosecute criminal matters with the upsurge in crime and modern technology.

The Governor stated that the need for a restorative justice system made his administration to join other states to domesticate the Administration of Criminal Justice Act of 2015.

He noted that as lofty as the objectives of the law may be, the need for key players and stakeholders in its implementation could not be overemphasized, hence the seminar which has the theme: “Understanding the Administration of the Criminal Justice Law Benue State 2019.”

The Governor pledged the provision of more resources to the judiciary, stressing that the State government would do its best to ensure effective dispensation of justice.

Chief Judge of the State, Justice Aondover Kakaan, in a keynote address, stated that the new law required sensitization as it would deepen the Administration of Criminal Justice in the state.

Central Planning Committee Chairman, Justice Maurice Ikpambese, in his contribution stated that the seminar was aimed at bringing out salient features of the law to aid its understanding and implementation.
