Festus Keyamo Says He Will Divide The Supreme Court If Made Minister Of Justice And Attorney General Of The Federation

Festus Keyamo (SAN), the ministerial nominee for Delta State says he will unbundle the Supreme Court if made the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation.

Keyamo disclosed this on Friday while taking questions from members of the Senate at the ongoing ministerial screening exercise in Abuja.

The human rights activist, who was the fourth nominee to appear in the Red Chamber on Thursday, said it was “scandalous” to have only one Supreme Court in Abuja, attending to the whole country.

He said he would press for constitutional changes to create six more regional Supreme Courts, NAN reports

He attributed the current delay of judicial processes at the apex court to heavy traffic of cases coming from the 36 states and the FCT.

He proposed that the Supreme Court in Abuja should only be made to attend to constitutional interpretation, political and election matters.

He also advocated for the decongestion of the prisons across the country.

He said this would be made possible by making sure that every Divisional Police Officer opens his cells to the nearest magistrate to ascertain why suspects are detained.

He also called for the amendment of the criminal laws across the states, particularly calling for the review of the powers of the Director of Prosecution and their Attorneys General, to avoid abuse of office.

On the number of the political parties in the country, Keyamo said “we must keep opening up the political space to Nigerians.

“But besides registration of these political parties, they must be made to test their popularity and capacity at the lower elections.”

  1. Very intelligent man,I have always admired him and Femi Falana.

    1. Used to admire him until I started watching him on tv defending APC. Guy loses his cool very fast and rants like a thug.

    2. First Anon gbam

    3. Does this man even understand his constitution? Abi, he wants to amend constitution by ministerial powers
      People become politicians and lose all intelligence

  2. I support the decongestion of Nigerian prisons,many people are in those prisons and awaiting trials for years

  3. Rhetorically speaking. Another Boris Johnson emerging.

  4. Having regional Supreme Courts make no sense. Where will the supremacy then come from? There are different courts at different levels. That should suffice. These BNG senators are not to be trusted with the amendment of any part of our constitution until they prove themselves

  5. I can't stand the sight of the guy. He irritates me a lot. He will support anyone as long as the money flows. Charlatan!!!!
