Judges Need To Be Courageous Like The Late Justice Akpata


Senior Partner at Templars, Mr. Olumide Akpata has called on Judges to be courageous like the Late Justice of the Supreme Court, Ephraim Omorose Ibukun Akpata the 2nd Edition of whose book, The Nigerian Arbitration Law in Focus, was launched earlier on today at the Agip Recital Hall of the MUSON Centre.



Mr. Akpata, while conceding that it was incumbent upon Lawyers and the public to do their utmost to protect the Judiciary in the face of attack from any quarter, made the point that the Judges themselves must also be bold enough to resist any attempt to emasculate that arm of Government by anyone no matter how highly placed. 


Mr. Akpata reminded the audience that Justice Akpata was known for his courage while on the Bench and also as Chairman of INEC and he was not afraid to speak truth to power.

The 2nd Edition of the book, The Nigerian Arbitration Law in Focus was co-authored by Mrs. Obosa Akpata and Mrs. Olusola Adegbomire and was published by West African Book Publishers.
