AGF Advocates Out-of-Court Settlement

By Ifeoma Nwovu

The Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, has advised all Attorneys-General in the 36 states to explore the opportunity of resolving pending legal disputes between state and FG, out of court.

Mr Malami gave the advice during the conference of Attorneys-General in Abuja.

He said the Body of Attorneys-General, play critical role in driving national unity and urged them to examine the issues militating against the administration of justice as well as proffer solutions.

“While we presently have quite a number of such issues at different stages of judicial adjudication; it is not out of place if we jointly take a second look at these issues, with a view to achieving mutual resolution without prejudice to subsisting legal rights.”

The AGF observed that the federal and state governments may find themselves in disputes and frictions.

He called on both parties to promote the culture of mutual trust and promote a cordial, symbiotic relationship that would translate into development for the country.

Mr Malami also reassured the lawyers that President Muhammadu Buhari, would fulfill his promise of improving the welfare of judicial officers, this year.
