The Judiciary has been described as the last hope of the common man. It is therefore important for the common man to have confidence and trust in the judicial system. The surest way of building trust and confidence is for judgments and decisions of courts to be fair, just and consistent. They must also be made available to the citizens immediately they are delivered.
Cognizant of this basic fact, NeGSt is deploying technology to ensure that court rulings and judgments can be uploaded and made available daily at the end of court proceedings using an automated system. In addition to having instant access to court judgments, the filing of cases has been automated using our e-filing platform. With electronic filing of cases, lawyers and litigants can conveniently file their cases from any part of the world, even on their mobile phones.
Leveraging our mandate from the Federal Government of Nigeria, NeGSt is also set to start digitizing court records and proceedings. With digitization, most of the case files that are archived in various court registries will be stored electronically, such that citizens will be able to conduct searches within the comfort of their homes without having to undertake the rigorous manual searching for case files as it’s been presently done today. The NeGSt platform will also address cases of apparent duplicity and diametrically opposed court pronouncements over same matters.
