The Anambra State House of Assembly has passed a bill for a law to organize Anambra State Multi-Door Courthouse and its connected goals.

The House passed the bill during plenary.

The Executive bill seeks to enhance access to Justice by providing alternative mechanisms to supplement litigation in the resolution of disputes through establishment of a Multi Door Courthouse.

After clause by clause considerations of the bill by the committee of the Speaker of the House, Right Honourable Uche Okafor read out the bill for passage, while the lawmakers supported it through voice vote.

Commenting on the bill, the member representing Njikoka One Constituency, Dr. Timothy Ifedioramma noted that the bill will eliminate all litigations associated with universal courts, minimize citizen frustration and delays in Justice delivery by providing legal framework for fair and efficient settlement of disputes using Multi-Door Courthouse.
