In the past few months, the Nigerian Judiciary has been in the news especially after the outcome of several elections were overturned by them and some governors were sacked. That has raised more concerns and questions over the credibility of the Nigerian judiciary.

Discussing the controversy, a senior lawyer, Mr. Myson Nejo told on CHANNELS TV blamed corruption for the current impasse.

He narrated how a client confessed to him that he had bribed a Chief Judge, urging him to as a result reduce his professional fee.

His words: “A client came to me and said he needed my service, which I said okay and told him this is what I was going to take. But he told me I shouldn’t worry that he just needed me to go to court as he had discussed with the Chief Judge, and it is just for me to show and what I am charging should be reduced as he has settled with the judge. Can you see that kind of embarrassment when a client comes and says that kind of thing to you and that’s what they are facing”.

Nejo did not however reveal the identity of the judge.
