The Federal Government has promised to support the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice in its effort to continue to be an independent regional court towards Economic Integration of West Africa.

The Minister of State Foreign Affairs Ambassador Zubairu Dada made the promise at the opening ceremony of the 2019/2020 Legal Year of the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice in Abuja.

He said an independent ECOWAS Court of Justice is vital in reposing the confidence of ECOWAS citizens to continue to trust the court with their litigations.

The Minister while congratulating the ECOWAS Court for its various achievement in the dispensation of Justice especially in the area of citizens right, Ambassador Dada assured them of the total support of the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the discharge of its responsibility.

Earlier, the Chief Registrar of the Court Mr Tony Anene-Maidoh while enumerating some of the achievements of the Court said a new record was set by the Court in last year as sixty one new cases were lodged in the year.

He said in the overall Judicial statistics of the court a total of four hundred and twenty five cases have been lodged before the court since its inception.

Mr Maidoh however said the successes recorded were not without challenges such as increased workload, inadequate office accommodation and fewer translators among others.
