HON. JUSTICE BABATUNDE A. ADEJUMO OFR,


Attempt by Nigerian government to provide and efficient legal framework for the settlement of trade disputes dates back to 1941 with the promulgation of the Trade Disputes (Arbitration and Inquiry) (Lagos) Ordinance of 1941

The Nigerian Industrial Court (NIC) was established in 1976 to take care of trade disputes between employers and employees, workers and workers, trade unions and workers and trade unions and trade unions.

For 25 years, the National Industrial Court (NIC), remained practically moribund. The court sat only in Lagos for those years. It was clearly unknown and its decisions and pronouncements hardly respected. Its president, Justice Babatunde Adejumo testified: “On my assumption of office, I realized that there was nothing on record to show how superior the court is. Nothing to even make it the court that can meet the yearnings and aspirations of the founding fathers.

“When I came, we were in Lagos in a duplex that was allocated to the court since 1976. Whenever it rained we would not be able to sit because the place was always water-logged.” That was in 2003. All that have changed now. the court is fast wearing new look with the establishment of eight divisions across the country.

“Today, we have established court in 24 divisions and registries. We have our Headquarters building situated in Abuja which is to be completed soon..”
