The average man’s last hope for justice: Tinubu promises reform

President Bola Tinubu has reiterated his commitment as the Chairman of the Authority of the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, Heads of State, and Government to advance judicial reforms in the bloc.

The president added that an accountable judicial system with integrity would strengthen democracy across West Africa, stressing that the judiciary remained the only hope of the common man.

At a meeting held at the State House in Abuja, Tinubu spoke to the ECOWAS Judicial Council, which was chaired by Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, the Chief Justice of Nigeria.

We are committed to transformative democracy because we believe the judiciary can protect democracy.

”We are ready to support you as learned minds who have the requisite experience and institutional memory to comprehensively reform our institutions.

”I assure you, as Chairman of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, that the judiciary is one of the pillars of protecting our democracy, and it is only in this regard that we can make a difference on the continent,” the President said.

Tinubu congratulated judges from member states who participated in the two-day council meeting in Abuja, applauding the successful conclusion of their deliberations.

He assured them that their recommendations would receive the utmost consideration by the heads of state and government of ECOWAS.

”We will work with you to ensure that your expertise is employed to promote justice in our democratic experiences on the continent and in the region.

“You are truly the last hope of the common man across our sub-region,” Tinubu added.
