Osinbajo advocates 12 To 15-month time limit for court cases


Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, challenged the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, to work towards reforming the Nigerian judicial processes to ensure the speedy dispensation of justice in the country.

He posed the challenge on Wednesday, 26 August 2020, when he declared open the virtual Annual National Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association in Lagos, where he represented President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Vice-President said he wants to see judicial reforms which is very urgent that will fast track all court cases so that the longest will be a maximum of 15 months.

For Osinbajo, fixing a time limit as has been done with cases in the Supreme Court might lead to speedy trials.

Besides speedy dispensation of court cases, Osinbajo noted that multiple and conflicting court orders are making a mockery of the judicial process while highlighting the need for reforms in that area.
