Nigerians are always searching for legal information on various aspects of the law, from issues bothering on Tenancy, Employment Law, Divorce and even Court proceedings. These information is valuable and in many cases is always a life saver to people who cannot afford competent legal representation. As a result of not knowing the law, many unsuspecting members of the public have been taking advantage of by unscrupulous elements. Via the law blog, we aim to inform Nigerians about their rights in law and it’s great to see the Lagos state Government taking the same initiative by establishing the Public Advice Centre.
The Public Advice Centre (PAC) is an initiative of His Excellency, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN. The Centre is saddled with the responsibility of providing citizens with easy access to information and advice which will benefit and improve their lives. The PAC serves as a port of call for citizens in distress and those seeking information on their rights and responsibilities.
The PAC is accessible to all, particularly the indigent, who have been socially excluded or subjected to discrimination. Its office is located at 3rd Floor, (Ereke House), 15 IPM Road, CBD Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos. PAC can be reached on 01-9500942 and 01-9500943. You can also tweet at PAC at @LAGPUBLICADVICE and visit their web site at http://pacng.wordpress.com/.
Please note that services of the PAC are free and if you are ever in need of free legal advice in Lagos State without access to Legal counsel, you can give the Public Advice Centre a call.
