Nigeria: Court of Appeal Sets Up 7 Panels On Decongestion

24 November 2020

The president of the Court of Appeal, Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem, has set up seven special panels for the decongestion of the appellate court's backlog of appeals.

She disclosed this in Abuja yesterday during her first meeting with presiding justices of the 20 Divisions of the Court of Appeal tagged: 'Working Conference of the Presiding Justices of the Court of Appeal.'

The working conference, which was first of its kind, was specially chosen to promote a sense of togetherness by enabling the most experienced minds to be deployed on special de-congestion panels that would tackle the most congested divisions.

The special panels, which will be sitting in two sessions daily, will work for three days to dispose over 100 motions and other applications lingering in the court, sometimes caused by the litigants, who fail to file complete processes.
