A2Justice deprecates arbitrary transfers of Judges Calls NJC to act to end it on account of its impact on access to justice.

A2Justice made a complaint to the Chairman of the National Judicial Council, on the 5th of March 2014, against the practice of arbitrary transfers of Federal High Court Judges without adequate consideration to the impact of transfers on litigants, and also without institutional arrangements to mitigate effects of Transfers.

The complaint also states the enormity of issues associated with the administration of justice in Nigeria as well as the public perception of the court and the level of confidence that may be reposed in the courts.

Cases that have become issues due to the transfers of Federal High Court Judges, the re-commencement of the cases from afresh and the agony of the litigants were among multifaceted issues that were raised by Access to Justice.
