 You must not allow technicalities to stand in the way of justice, Onnoghen tells Judges
You must not allow technicalities to stand in the way of justice, Onnoghen tells Judges

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen, has cautioned judges against allowing technicalities to stand in the way of dispensing justice in the country.

Onnoghen made the remark on Monday in Abuja when he declared open the 2017 National Energy Workshop for Judges.

He said that Judges must not allow technicalities to stand in the way of justice in order to sustain public confidence in the Judiciary.

He said that the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) would engender timely disposition of cases and encouraged the Judges to adopt it.

The CJN noted that the theme of the workshop: “Law and the Changing Face of Petroleum and Power Sectors in Nigeria”, was relevant in the light of the developments in the international energy market.

He said that the workshop would enlighten the judges on global best practices in confronting the challenges that might arise in the power and petroleum sectors.

Onnoghen, however, noted that conflicting judgments were a necessary part of the judiciary as they helped to strengthen the system.

In a keynote address, the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, called for measures to speed the “crawling” judicial process in the country.

Osinbajo, who was represented by the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, described the slow judicial process in the country as “nightmare for investors.’’
