“The African legal system or judiciary is like a broken mirror reflecting different directions, especially the directions of various colonial homes of respective countries.

 

Yet, Africans are the only people who in the past resolved disputes and issues through traditional institutions.

“The Association should work hard for the unification of African judiciary and mutual legal development,” the Chief Justice of Nigeria CJN told the AFBA.

 

The Chief Justice of Nigeria CJN thanked the delegation and assured them of his maximum support to the AFBA activities.
