Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday promised that his administration will continue to give financal and other forms of support to the Lagos Public Interest Law Partnership (LPIP).
This is to enable LPIP continue to offer probono judicial service to indigent Lagosians who desire fair legal representation.
Governor Sanwo-Olu made the pledge during a courtesy visit from the Board of trustees of the organization led by Senator Daisy Danjuma at the Lagos House, Ikeja.
Sanwo-Olu commended the Board of Trustees for making life bearable for Lagosians who might not have the opportunity to be heard through the provision of free legal services.
“I want to commend the initiative, and for us as a current government, we will continue to raise the bar.
“This platform we are talking about is important. We need to merge users and operators so that people can see what requirements, areas and skills required and they can merge them for their benefits. As the saying goes, Justice must not just be seen but must be done.
“We’ll continue to support the partnership and collaborate in whatever form for a better society. The support may be financial or any other resources required to do for the LPIP to achieve its mandate.”
