We need to reform our extant laws, says Sen. Omoworare

Sen. Babajide Omoworare, representing Osun East Senatorial District at the National Assembly  has called for the reform of Nigerian extant laws.

Omoworare made the call  while chatting with newsmen  on Monday in Osogbo.

He said the present laws in the country, and the entire judicial system needed to be reformed to make it more functional and reliable.

Omoworare, who the Chairman of Senate Committee on Legislative compliance said he was working on a bill for law and judicial reform, which would soon be presented to the Senate for debate.

He however expressed skepticism on the full implementation of the 2016 budget, saying the sharp fall in the world oil price, coupled with huge financial infractions by the immediate past administration might hamper the feat.

According to him, “the enormous financial responsibility of the government requires stable and huge resources, unlike what we are experiencing in the oil sector, which is the mainstay of our economy”.

Omoworare therefore canvassed for urgent and proactive diversification of the Nigerian economy to make it more virile and sustainable.

On the arrested judges by the Directorate of State Service on Saturday, the Senator declined comment on the issue, saying such comment could amount to prejudice at the long run.
