The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen, has decried the delay in the justice delivery system in Nigeria.
Justice Onnoghen raised the concern at a training for some newly appointed justices held on Monday in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
He described the situation as unacceptable and emphasised the need for a thorough and comprehensive reform of the justice sector, to ensure access to justice within a reasonable time.
The CJN also warned justices and judges across the country to shun corruption and desist from any act capable of bringing the Nigerian judiciary to disrepute.
Lending a voice, the Administrator of the National Judicial Institute, Justice Roseline Bozimo, warned and charged the judiciary to live up to its responsibility to the rule of law and the country.
