The E-library will provide access to foreign and local books, foreign and local judgments, rules of court from the Supreme Court to the customary Courts. The e-library will also feature all volumes of the Laws of the Federation of Nigeria as well as additional resources relevant to legal research. 

What is the need are you focusing on?

I am focusing on the need to equip lawyers in their research work in meeting the need for justice for their clients. Law Office are now closed but there are some cases that are still going on in courts. The E-library provides the solution for access to books and other resources to aid the lawyers. Also, most lawyers cannot afford to have a library of their own and they rely on other lawyers libraries to do their researches. This e-library service will provide access to all lawyers regardless of their financial standing.

What is the best example of business adaption you’ve seen in response to COVID-19?

I heard about a microbrewery in Abuja that produced hand sanitizers and sent out to its customers. I didn’t Have access to the information directly but I think that they address the need for scarcity of hand sanitizer as there was a sudden hike in the prices of the ones available.
