Dear Colleagues,

In continuation of the efforts of the leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association (“NBA”) to engender a more cordial relationship between the Bar and the Bench, the President of the NBA – Mr. Olumide Akpata, on Thursday 24th March 2022 led some members of the National Executive and senior members of the Bar, on a courtesy visit to the Chief Justice of the Federation.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria – Hon. Justice Dr. Ibrahim Tanko

During the visit, a review of the outcome of the 2022 Justice Sector summit was done, regarding the appointment/selection and discipline of Judges, independence and financial autonomy of our Courts in dispensing justice without fear, favour, affection or ill-will, and the efficiency and efficacy of the system to ensure that our courts perform optimally, with considerable speed and accuracy.

Thereafter, The Chief Justice of Nigeria – Hon. Justice Dr. Ibrahim Tanko pointed out that most of the recommendations stemming from the Justice Sector Summit are already part of the National Judicial Council (NJC) Policy of 2016, which unfortunately are not yet being implemented.

Consequently, it was agreed that a Five member committee of the Bar and Bench will be set in motion to work out the modalities for the implementation of the Justice Sector recommendation.

Furthermore, the NBA President on behalf of the delegation, pledged to continue speaking up for the Bench since the code guiding members of the Bench bars them from responding to attacks meted on its members.

The CJN thanked the NBA President for the thoughtful visit and reminded the delegation that the Bar and Bench are different sides to a coin which must work in symphony. He further pledged by way of conclusion, that more steps will be taken to ensure a more efficient dispensation of justice, and implementation of the decisions reached at the Justice Sector Summit.
