Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to use technology to change the way law is practiced in Nigeria
It's all part of making a better world.
When I succeed, judges will no longer be recording court proceedings manually but electronically to avoid delay in justice delivery in Nigeria, avoid paraphrasing a lawyer’s speech which can lead to a misrepresentation of the central idea. I want to achieve electronic filing and serving system. I want to achieve a digitalization of Nigerian courtrooms.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by the judges, lawyers, litigants and the general public including other countries who can copy and implement that in their legal system.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
The number of cases pending in courts will reduce
Continuous compulsory education for lawyers in the use of technology
Trust in the judiciary
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
When most courts are digitalized,
When the council of legal education makes it compulsory for certain category of judges to acquire knowledge on the use of technology that are used in the courtroom.
When the stress of filling cases reduces,
When the cases pending in court reduces,
When judgement is delivered in good time like 2 months .
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
