The Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki while signing the bills in his office in Benin City on Thursday

Others signed into law are the bills to repeal the Criminal Code Law of 1916 and enact a law to provide rules on criminal conduct, regulate public order and connected purposes; repeal the Forestry Law of 1968 and enact a law to establish the Edo State Forestry Commission and provide for preservation, conservation of forest and various matters.

L-R: Speaker, Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Marcus Onobun; Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki; member, Edo State House of Assembly, Hon. Henry Okhuarobo, and Deputy Speaker of the Assembly, Hon. Roland Asoro, during the signing of four bills into law at the Government House in Benin City. 

Signing the bills into law at the  Government House in Benin City, Governor Obaseki said, “today is significant for us in Edo State as we have succeeded in a bold move to enact and revise laws in areas that we have not done for a century or half a century. The signing today of the Edo Justice Sector Reform Law and the new criminal law for me is a watershed and a milestone”.

“Over the years, the lack of adequate coordination among the Judicial Institutions in Edo State and across the Country has created a major problem in the administration of Justice leading to congestion in our prisons, lack of cohesive actions and the likes”.

“These reforms will help deal with issues in these sectors as it will improve coordination in the Judicial Institution.”

He added, “this new law is an essential part of the agenda of our current administration in setting up the required legal architecture for a forward looking judiciary which will also help us in our goal to create an investment-friendly and role based society for generations yet unborn”.

On the new criminal code law, Obaseki stated, that “in the new law, the offence of rape has been strengthened to deal with the issue of rape and its diverse manifestations and other offences have been added. New offences have been created to close some gaps in the legal framework”.

He noted that the building law will ensure that people stop the indiscriminate erection of buildings without permission from relevant authorities in the state.

The Governor said, “we have had a strange situation in Edo State. People build without building approval and the new law makes it an offense punishable by law to build without getting the required approval. This will stop our cities from growing into urban jungles. The bill will bring back sanity to our building environment”.
