Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Judiciary, Luke Onofiok, on Wednesday urged the Federal Government to approve intervention funds for the judiciary.

He spoke when the management of the National Judicial Council appeared before the committee for the 2022 budget defence session.

He said this would enable the judiciary to meet its competing demands.

He commended the government for raising the statutory allocation to the judiciary from N110bn to N120bn in the 2022 budget.

 “`We have intervention fund for sports, we have intervention funds for youths, we’ve had intervention funds for entertainment. 

“I do not think it’ll be out of place for the Federal Government to have intervention fund for the Judiciary.

“We believe that this is the only way the judiciary can meet up with its competing demands facing the judiciary as we go on,’’ he said.
