On 27 June, the National Planning Commission and the European Union signed the Financing Agreements for two European Union- funded projects valued at 62 Million Euros (N12 bn) to support the Federal Government's efforts in the fight against drugs and related organised crime, and the justice sector reform in the country. The signing of the two financing agreements by the Honourable Minister/Deputy Chairman, National Planning Commission, Dr. Shamsuddeen Usman, CON and the Ambassador and Head of Delegation of the European Union to Nigeria and ECOWAS, H.E. Dr. David MacRae followed a similar event on 19 March 2012, during which the financing agreement for a project supporting the fight against corruption in Nigeria was signed.  All three projects are being implemented by UNODC. The justice sector project which is worth 27 Million Euros (about N5.3bn) will contribute towards improving the effectiveness, accessibility, accountability, transparency and fairness of the justice system while 36 million euro is dedicated to support the Fight against Drugs and Organised Crime. Speaking at the signing ceremony, the Minister of National Planning Commission, Dr. Usman said that the two projects are aimed at promoting good governance, security, transparency, accountability, curbing drugs, organised crime and reforming in the justice sector. Dr. MacRae commented that the overall objective of the projects is to promote good governance and the rule of law, and contribute to Nigeria's efforts in the reform of the justice sector and in addressing drug and related crime in Nigeria. In both cases the expected results are intended to enhance the development of Nigeria for the benefit of its citizens.
