Special Assistant to the President on Prosecution, Chief Okoi Obono-Obla, has revealed that the nation’s Judiciary system appears to be retrogressing due to a high level of corruption amongst top judges.
Obono-Obla was making a reference to the decision of the Kenya Judiciary service which annulled the Presidential Election in the country without comprising their job for money.
He also disclosed how a case he filed at the Supreme Court 10 years ago is yet to be assigned a date for hearing due to corruption and inefficiency.
“Why is the judicial system in Nigeria adverse to change? Look at Kenya and how it has reformed its own system!
See how effective and efficient the judiciary is in Kenya. See how audacious, bold, courageous and
fearless judges in Kenya are.
See how an election petition was heard within dispatch just three weeks after it was filed. See how lawyers work together with the bench to deliver a landmark judgment.In Nigeria, lawyers would devise all manners of legal maneuverings steeped in crass legal technicalities to frustrate justice. The judgment would be leaked several weeks before delivery,” he said.
