NIC not for corrupt judges –Adejumo

From Victor Akinkuolie, Ado-Ekiti
The president of the National Industrial Court (NIC), Justice Babatunde Adejumo, has said that no corrupt judge  can succeed if appointed into the bench of the court.

Justice Adejumo said those aspiring to be judges of the industrial court and expected to scale the hurdles of screening must be incorruptible and hardworking persons.

Adejumo spoke  while delivering a lecture entitled: “How to Become A Judge of National Industrial Court” as part of activities marking the 2019 Attorney General’s Colloquium in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State capital.

The Judge who said apart from the fact that the corrupt judges on the bench of the industrial court won’t make headway, declared that corrupt tendencies of such individuals are easily exposed to the public.

He stated that most of the trade disputes being adjudicated upon by the court were government- labour industrial feud, which he said further predispose the judges to intensive lobbying and this he stressed must be resisted to protect justice and the integrity of the bench.

Adejumo revealed that the industrial court failed to live up to the expectations of the people since its establishment via Trade Disputes Decree No 7 of 1976 by military regime due to the dual appointment of the members of the bench of the court.

The NIC President urged lawyers intending to serve as judges of the court to be apolitical, shun corruption and live a modest lifestyle to be able to pass the judicial scrutiny that would qualify them for the bench of NIC.
