On this edition of Law Weekly, we found out that the issue of dispute resolution in the Nigerian Capital Market is still one issue still on the minds of lawyers, judges, lawmakers, accountants, stockbrokers and other members of the capital market.

Another issue we featured was the suspension of the former president of the court of appeal, Justice Ayo Salami who is due to retire from the bench on the 15th of October.

Justice Salami spoke about the intrigues that led to his suspension during a book launch in his honour by the Ilorin branch of the Nigerian Bar Association.

The book is titled: “Nigerian Judiciary: Contemporary Issues on Administration of Justice”.

Justice Salami was suspended by the National Judicial Council in August 2011 for refusing to apologise to the council and the former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Aloysius Katsina-Alu, after a face-off between both men.
