Cleen Foundation, a Non Governmental Organisation, on Friday in Abuja urged states to domesticate the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) 2015 with a view to ensuring speedy dispensation of corruption cases in Nigeria.
Mrs Rita Elasuju, Assistant Project Officer, Cleen Foundation made the call while presenting the foundation’s 2nd policy brief on promoting accountability and transparency in the implementation of ACJA in Nigeria to ACJA Monitoring Committee.
The document is titled, “The potential of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015 to bolster the fight against corruption”.
Elasuju said that since the inception of the Act, 29 out of 36 states had domesticated the Act while Zamfara, Kebbi, Niger, Imo, Taraba, Gombe and Borno states had not done so.
“It is paramount for the Chief Judges of states that are yet to domesticate the law to take a united approach in embracing the gains of ACJA by pro actively moving for its full adoption in their states.
“Partial adoption may not guarantee judicial reform or the full rewards of the Act,” she said
Elasuju also pointed out the need to ensure uniform application of the law across the country.
She said, “out of the 26 states that that have adopted the law, only a few of the state laws share a near complete semblance to the principal legislation.
“Some states have their laws enhanced and well detailed thus leaving no room for gaps as is obtainable with the Act, while others have their law drafted in such a manner that departs from the spirit of the ACJA,” she said.
Elasuju, however, expressed worry that in spite of efforts by the Federal Government and civil society groups to spread the law, lawyers and litigants still find a way to cause unnecessary delays in the hearing of corruption cases.
She urged the prosecuting agencies to demonstrate resilience and passion in the prosecution of corruption and financial crime cases using the ACJA, 2015.
Receiving the report, Mr Sulayman Dawodu, Secretary, Administration of Criminal Justice Monitoring Committe, said that the report would be reviewed by sub committees with a view to presenting viable and empirical data to the larger committee.
According to Dawodu, there is need to have solidly viable and empirical data that the sub committees can submit to the larger committee.
“It will be extended to other institutions and notes will be compared for improved implementation of ACJA through analysis of cases and trends,” Dawodu said.

ICT: MainOne, Group partner to support Cote d’Ivoire fight against COVID-19
West Africa’s leading connectivity and data centre provider, MainOne, with headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria, and AWALE, a neutral network operator are partnering to support the Crisis Cell of the Ivoirian Government against the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Mr Kazeem Oladepo, MainOne’s Regional Executive Director, West Africa, said in a statement on Tuesday that as an organisation committed to enabling the digital economy of West Africa, it was aware of the impact of the pandemic on public services, infrastructure and businesses.
Oladepo said that the joint partnership intervention was also aware of the economic challenges faced by governments.
He said that as premier provider and responsible Ivorian business, the partnership would continue to support governments efforts at every level by providing world-class internet infrastructure.
According to him, value-added services that reduces cost, drive operational continuity and seamless communication for good governance in Côte d’Ivoire will also be provided.
‘’We are proud to partner with AWALE, a subsidiary of the Pan-African Group ERANOVE, who shares our commitment to support government efforts to manage the impact of the pandemic across the sub region.
‘’This measure of solidarity will reinforce the emergency deployment plan of the Ministry of Digital Economy and Postal Services of the country.
‘’The joint initiative includes the provision of free connectivity capacity and internet services to strategic state institutions for a period of three months,” he said.
The executive director said that MainOne and AWALE were jointly contributing their broadband connectivity infrastructure and ICT services for the delivery of critical online and real-time public services.
He said that with lockdown, social distancing and remote work patterns becoming the new-normal globally, it was determined to ensure the Ivorian crisis committee continued to dispense its socio-economic and public security responsibilities through virtual platforms.
Oladepo said that the enhanced connectivity offering provided the government’s crisis committee with robust access to real-time information management, whilst seamlessly connecting essential workers across the nation.
He said it was also helping to drive dynamic exchange of scientific findings and access to global knowledge related to control and management of the disease by researchers in Côte d’Ivore.
Mr Daniel Sampah, Founder and Managing Director of AWALE said that the organisation appreciated the efforts of the Ivorian in deploying an effective response plan to COVID-19 disease.
Expedite action to bring Omozuwa’s killers to justice, group tasks Police
Girl Child Africa, a Civil Society Organisation (CSO) on Tuesday, urged the Police to intensify efforts to ensure that killers of Miss Uwaila Omozuwa were brought to justice.
Omozuwa, a student of University of Benin (UNIBEN) was gruesomely raped and murdered in a church in Edo, where she had apparently gone to study ahead of resumption of academic activities.
This elicited protests by various groups and individuals, demanding the arrest and prosecution of her murderer (s) who was/ were still at large.
While condemning the rape and murder of the 100 level female microbiology student of the UNIBEN , Shonibare emphasised the need for police to work assiduously to establish the facts surrounding Omozuwa’s death.
The human rights activist also stressed the need to implement laws that protected lives and rights of citizens from abuse, particularly women.
According to her, the way we handle Omozuwa’s matter will serve as a deterrent to others and go a long way in stopping rape in the country.
“This brings to the fact that we have laws that protect the lives and rights of citizens from abuse.
“If those laws exist as letters and are not implemented, then every person who wants to indulge in sexual abuse will have his or her way.
“Same was replicated in some states but unfortunately the laws are not being implemented.
“Since the passage of this law, we have not had instances where they are used to serve as deterrent to those who may want to indulge in such ugly practice,’’ Shonibare said.
She however, decried unwholesome practices in the judiciary, saying that they contributed to slowing down quick dispensation of justice in the country.
She said “even when you take such cases to the courts, the corruption is discouraging and will not allow victims get justice.
“We will continue to have such cases of abuse if the laws are not implemented.
“Therefore, the way we follow Uwa’s case will go a long way in stopping sexual abuse in Nigeria,’’ Shonibare said.
Ondo 2020: Group endorses Kekemeke for APC governorship primaries
Ijabiyi said the group reached the unanimous agreement to adopt Kekemeke as its candidate for APC in the coming primary election after a critical assessment of all the aspirants.
“It took us sometime to zero in on Kekemeke; we carried out a painstaking assessment of each of them.
“At the end of it all, we have no difficulty at all in arriving at the conclusion that Kekemeke is the best,” the group said.
“Kekemeke was a member of the House óf Assembly, chairman of a major national parastatal, Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Commissioner for Works, Lands, Housing and Transport as well as Secretary to the State Government.
“At party level, he was pioneer State Secretary of the PDP, pioneer State Chairman of APC.
“Kekemeke is, therefore, an experienced government man and party chieftain. No other aspirant has this kind of intimidating pre-election credential,” the group said.
Ijabiyi described Kekemeke as “a man of great competence with ability to combine pragmatism with intellectualism to plan, execute and deliver.
“A man imbued with clear-headedness, deep thinking, creative mind, a moral and spiritual icon, a no-nonsence disciplinarian and dogged fighter, calculating and methodical. That man is Isaac Kekemeke.”
The group said that Ondo State has a long tradition and understanding of geopolitical rotation, adding that Kekemeke from Southern Senatorial District would win the October 10 governorship poll for APC.
“Our direct opponent is PDP. To defeat the party, we must field our best man, a man that carries no public liabilities or controversies, a man that can attract the votes of the people and that man is Kekemeke,” the group said.
Ijabiyi said that the group would agressively work for Kekemeke’s victory at the primary election and spare nothing to see him through at the October 10 governorship poll.

“As an indigene of Osun, we will continue to assist and support the government in whatever way for the benefit and well-being of the people,” Adedokun said .

A group of NGOs under the aegis of Bauchi State Public Financing in Agriculture Budget Committee has urged the state government to increase its allocation to agriculture due to the effects of COVID-19 to boost farming.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the NGOs are: Small Scale Women Farmers Organisation in Nigeria (SWOFON), Fahimta Women and Youth Development Initiative (FAWOYDI), with the support Actionaid Nigeria.
Others are: Rahma Women Development Programme (RAHMA), Media, Women Empowerment Initiative Nigeria (WEIN), Bauchi State Network of Civil Society and Association of Small scale Agro Producers in Nigeria (ASSAPIN).

“We are also appealing to the government to make provisions for credit and loan schemes to assist farmers, if we must avert the looming food crisis occasioned by COVID-19,” she said.

Group asks court to compel DSS, IGP to investigate Omo-Agege
The Incorporated Trustees of Empowerment for Unemployed Youths Initiative on Monday, asked the Federal High Court, Abuja to compel the Director- General, Department of State Services, (DSS) and the Inspector- General of Police to investigate the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege.
A motion ex parte filed by the group further prayed the court to order Omo-Agege to step down from office as deputy senate president pending the completion of the investigation.
Counsel to the group, Mr Edward Omaga said his client asked the deputy senate president to step down to allow for transparent and fair investigation and to also prevent him from interfering with the investigation.
The group also prayed the court to declare that refusal of the DSS and the IGP to investigate Omo-Agege would be deemed unjustifiable, wrongful and tantamount to dereliction of duties under the relevant laws that established them.
According to Omaga, in the affidavit attached to the motion exparte, until the DSS and the IGP are compelled by an order of the court, they will continue to refuse to investigate Omo-Agege.
The plaintiff said in the suit that it was convinced that any action or inaction of persons occupying elective and appointive position would have a direct impact on the overwhelming unemployed youths in the country.
No date has, however been fixed for hearing in the suit.
