The Lagos State Public Advice Centre (PAC) on Tuesday embarked on a sensitisation campaign across the Lagos metropolis to educate residents on the activities of the centre, especially its free legal services.
The Director of PAC, Mr. Tunji Dawodu, who led the exercise, stressed that in addition to the free legal services, the Centre also provides support to Lagosians who seek accurate information to engender harmonious living with one another.
While urging some Balogun Market traders and residents to avail themselves of the free legal services offered by PAC, Dawodu encouraged them to always visit the Agency’s office located at Alausa, Ikeja, beside the Secretariat Mosque, for necessary legal assistance.
In his words: “This Centre is your first port of call for anything and everything. All residents in the State can contact us or visit our office at Alausa to lodge their complaints or make enquiries”.
He explained that the advocacy campaign was designed to educate Lagosians, especially traders, marketmen and women, whose daily activities could hinder them from accessing the services of the Agency.
“The strategy we have decided to adopt for this year is to take our services to the people and not wait for them to come to us. We don’t want our people to suffer as a result of ignorance or lack of relevant information”, Dawodu said.
The Director, therefore, urged all Lagos residents to abide by existing laws and regulations guiding their daily activities, saying that the Centre will always lend its support in as much as citizens act within the ambit of the law.
