Nigerian Court Environments, interference on the judicial independence, as well as requirement of proofs in trial process in the law court are some factors affecting absolute justice in Nigeria.

The Chief Judge of Oyo State, Justice Muktar Abimbola stated this in a 2018 Public Lecture of the Faculty of Law, University of Ibadan.

Justice Abimbola explained that unconducive court environment, passion, infallibility, feelings and perception of the judge and availability of proof strongly determine the realty or failure of justice.

Justice Abimbola stressed the need for judges to be reasonable, while delivering judgment.

The Attorney General of Oyo State and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Oluwaseun Abimbola who noted that the law applies discretion during legal decisions added that interaction between legal practitioners and law students counts in order to sustain standards in the legal profession.

In a remark, first female Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Folake Solanke advised the law students to read wide and be good listeners so as to excel in the profession.

The lecture entitled: “Absolute Justice: Fact or Fiction” attracted practitioners from the Judiciary.
