Knitting Contempt of Law to the Administration of Justicedocx

Knitting Contempt of Law to the Administration of Justicedocx

The disobedience of court orders in Nigeria in recent times has taken another dimension. The court is gradually beginning to lose its integrity as a result of flagrant disregard of its orders and judgments especially from other arms of government. For there to be a smooth running of government under a democratic dispensation, there must be respect for the judiciary as an institution with full legal clothing from the Constitution and other legislative enactments made pursuant thereof. Disregard for the orders and judgment of a court surely does no good to the rule of law and democratic process; instead anarchy and impunity become the order of the day. Therefore, the essence of due regard for the orders of a court of law cannot be overstated as it underpins the assurance of stability and due course of the law. The titling of impunity towards the administration of justice in Nigeria does have monumental consequences and places the law in a continuous pendulum heading for a plunge. This paper examines contempt of law in Nigeria and the regard the law has been as a result of disobedience to court orders and proffers solution on how the law can be at ease through the administration of effective justice.

A Critical Examination of the Constitutional Status of the Jurisdictions of the Federal High Court and the National Industrial Court in Nigeria

Hitherto, there used to be a conflict between the Federal High Court and the National Industrial Court in terms of their jurisdictions. However, the case was laid to rest though unfortunately resurrected after a military junta. This article seeks to analyse the constitutional framework for the jurisdiction of the Federal High Court (FHC) and also to highlight the expansion of the jurisdiction of the National Industrial Court (NIC), especially, in trade dispute resolutions beyond the provisions of the Trade Disputes Act.
