The Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Justice Reforms and International Relations, Mrs Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagwu says the Federal Government has made appreciable impact in strengthening the justice sector.
Ibekaku-Nwagwu disclosed this on Saturday in Enugu shortly after she was conferred with a chieftaincy title by Igwe Onyioha Nwanjoku, the traditional ruler of Ohafia Ndumeze in the Aninri Local Government Area of the state.
The presidential aide said that a whole lot of reforms had been made to ensure that Nigerians had access to justice.
She said that some of the reforms were already yielding positive results, adding that the current administration was desirous of correcting the wrongs of the past years.
“What we do in the justice sector has been challenging in terms of ensuring that Nigerians can go to the courts and get justice,” she said.
Ibekaku-Nwagwu said that the sector was also strategic in making policies that would ensure the recovery of looted funds and making sure that the same was used to change the lives of Nigerians.
She said that the president had shown unprecedented commitment in transforming the fortunes of the less privileged by approving such policies.
She said that the empowerment cash transfer schemes such as the Trader Moni and others were all fall-outs of the president’s commitment to effectively utilise the recovered looted funds for the benefit of Nigerians.
On the infrastructural needs of the Southeast, the presidential aide said that the zone had not had it so good.
“The president has shown uncommon zeal in building infrastructure in the zone which includes the pursuit of the completion of the Second Niger Bridge which is a signature project in the zone.
“The current administration is trying to do something differently every day because the president is holding people accountable. I am very happy to be part of this government,” she said.
She said that the agricultural reforms of the Federal Government had impacted positively on her constituency and Enugu State in general.
“The investment being made in the agricultural sector is very relevant to the agrarian communities in the state. The president is consolidating on what he did in his first term.
“By the time he finishes the work he is doing, our people will see the difference,” Ibekaku-Nwagwu said.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ibekaku-Nwagwu was conferred with the traditional title of ‘Ada Eji Eje Mba’ (Precious Daughter) 1 of Ndumeze Kingdom.
