The Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) has highlighted the need for effective and efficient administration of justice, to enhance quick dispensation of justice in any Society.
The Chief Judge of Ogun State, Honourable Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu reiterated this during the 22nd Annual lecture of Nigeria Bar Association, Ijebu-Ode branch, with the theme “Towards a Better Administration of Justice in Nigeria: Case for Systemic Structural and Attitudinal Transformation”, held at Chris Ogunbanjo Centre, Eruwon, Ijebu-Ode.
Justice Dipeolu said the theme of this year’s lecture was thought provoking and in tandem with her modus operandi, lamenting the deplorable state of the existing courts across the State, which she noted are in bad shape and would surely affect the administration of justice.
She opined that justice delay is justice denied, saying, “upon assumption of office, I went on tour of all the Courts in Ogun State and discovered a lot of hindrances to the administration of Justice”.
Earlier in his Speech, Chairman, Nigeria Bar Association, Ijebu Ode branch, Mr. Mojeeb Ganiyu, said Members’ commitment to the Association is witnessing a re-awakening, adding that the branch was the luckiest, as two of their patrons are now Senior Advocate of Nigeria.
The Guest lecturer, Dele Adesina (SAN) in his keynote address, explained that Justice is concerned with the relationship between person and especially with fairness towards the fulfilments of contractual obligations, saying, a better administration of Justice in Nigeria requires structural, attitudinal and transformation as an attempt to x-ray the management of Justice in Nigeria
