Why We, In FCT, Respect Law, Justice System, Minister Tells Body Of Benchers

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Musa Bello has said that the administration respects the law and justice system because the capital city is the only one in the country that is the creation of law.

“We are very conscious of the legal profession and justice system probably because we are the only city in Nigeria that is a creation of law and in all that we do, we are guided by law and all of you and the entire profession have been supportive of us.

 “It is our duty therefore as a city to really support you in all that you require because it is the natural thing to do.”

Malam Musa Bello, who received in audience today, June 22 in his office, members of the Body of Benchers of Nigeria, led by its Chairman, Chief Wole Olanipekun, expressed the appreciation of the Administration to the judiciary.

He promised that the Administration will complete the access road to the Body of Benchers Hall in time for the commissioning of the edifice located at the Research Institutional District of Abuja.

The minister, who responded to the demand for access road to the Body of Benchers’ Hall, which is its office complex, the Minister, said that the Institutional District of the city is intended to accommodate research and academic institutions and the FCTA was paying particular attention to the provision of infrastructure within the district.

”A few months ago, I was there to see what we could do to fast track the road projects in the area and I intend, with my team, to look at what the challenges are and as quickly as possible try to see how we can surmount them. This is very important because it will add tremendous value to the city of Abuja.

“What we have tried to do over the last few years is to try to position the city as a conference tourism destination because of the serene environment, peace and the ability to move around easily. We think that gradually, we can position the city for that.”

Earlier, Chief Wole Olanipekun had thanked the Minister for the warm reception granted the delegation and requested for the completion of the access road to the Body of Benchers Hall in time for its formal commissioning.
