Enugu Govt. commences massive reforms to boost investment



The Enugu State government is embarking on an extensive review of existing state laws and the creation of new ones. This initiative is a crucial step towards establishing the state as the top choice for investment.

This effort also seeks to mitigate risks and expand the range of investment opportunities available.

Accordingly, Governor Peter Mbah’s administration is committed to the establishment of integrated smart schools in every one of the state’s 260 wards.

This visionary approach seeks to transform educational institutions into centres for skill development rather than just social service providers.

The state’s attorney-general and commissioner for justice, Dr Kingsley Udeh, and the commissioner for education, Prof Ndubueze Mbah, who briefed newsmen at the end of the State Executive Council meeting at the weekend, urged investors to take advantage of the newly signed Enugu State Electricity Law 2023.

Udeh said the State Executive Council resolved to embark on massive law reviews to make the state more investment-friendly.

Speaking further, Dr. Udeh emphasized that the administration is undertaking a comprehensive digitization of the judiciary, encompassing processes from the filing of cases to the final decision-making stage.

The overarching goal of this digital transformation initiative is to streamline and expedite the judicial process. In the past, it often took the courts five to seven years to resolve cases.

However, with these technological advancements, the aim is to significantly reduce this timeline, allowing for the resolution of cases within a year or even less.

This forward-looking approach to modernizing the judiciary reflects the commitment to efficiency and timely justice delivery in the state.
