THE Court of Appeal on Monday formally commenced the Alternative Dispute Resolution system of settling legal disputes, expressing the belief that it was necessary to make the country more attractive to international trade and Foreign Direct Investment.
The appellate court urged the judiciary to rise up and meet the challenges of adjudication in the 21st century.
Among the appellants at the session were business tycoons, Chief Ned Nwoko, who described the ADR as a right step in the right direction and appealed to Nigerians to imbibe the new justice dispensation system.
