Lateef Fagbemi, attorney-general of the federation (AGF) and minister of justice, says President Bola Tinubu is committed to using the judiciary to drive economic growth, investment, and revenue generation in the country.

Fagbemi spoke on Thursday at a retreat organised for officials of the federal ministry of justice and its agencies in Abuja.

The minister said the justice sector plays a pivotal role in the development of other sectors.

“The present administration has eight priorities and eight focus areas,” he said.


“The federal ministry of Justice, by its mandate speaks to priority 3 (economic growth and job creation); priority 5 (inclusivity; drawing on all skills base); priority 6 (security); priority 7 (fairness and rule of law); and priority 8 (anti-corruption stance).

“The ministry also speaks to the eighth (8th) focus area of government, which is improved governance for effective service delivery.

“It is worthy of note that the justice sector is pivotal to the attainment of the objectives of other sectors, as well as attaining the universal role of the law as a veritable enabler for development.


“Particularly, the justice sector is a key catalyst or stimulator for economic growth, investment drive, and revenue generation, among others.

“Traditionally, the sector renders non-kinetic support to the security/defence architecture of the country.”

He sought the cooperation of the staff of the ministry as well as agencies and parastatals under him, towards achieving the performance agreement signed between ministers and the president.
