Taking Judicial Services Closer To The People

Eighteen (18) High Court buildings and eleven (11) Magistrates’ court buildings are being constructed via the Judicial Performance Improvement Project to deliver judicial services closer to the public. 

The ultramodern facilities are being constructed in various part of the country to reduce the distance litigants have to travel to courts and hence increase accessibility to justice.
