The judiciary at various levels has been urged to be consistent and coherent in the dispensation of justice which is the basis of the reforms needed in this arm of government.
Drawing inferences from the judgements in the court cases as seen in the Abia State governorship tussle between Ikpeazu Vs Ogah and that of Cross River state between Ben Ayade and Joe Agi, Civil Society For Judicial Reforms stressed that the ongoing reforms in the judiciary cannot be complete when different judgements and orders are given on similar cases.
The group in a press conference by the Coalition’s coordinator, Ameh Ejeh, represented by Onuahah Oliver in Abuja, yesterday, urged the court to restore, strengthen and enthrone this factor in the dispensation of justice.
Oliver said: “The reforms going on in our judiciary cannot be complete when different judgements and orders are given in the similar cases.
He argued that “Consistency and coherency in dispensation of judgements should form the basis of the needed reforms in the Nigerian Judiciary.”
