The Chairman of IRS Airlines, Rabiu Isiyaka Rabiu, has called for the transformation of the judicial system in Nigeria to meet global best practices.
Rabiu made the call on Thursday at the 24th Executive Retreat of the National Judicial Council (NJC) organised by the Noor Pain De Vie (NPDV) in Kano.
While delivering a paper presentation, the IRS chairman said, “There is a need for transformational leadership in the judicial setting and also we examine where we are, where we need to be, and what we need to do to be where we need to be.
“As you are aware, the interpretation of laws rests with the judiciary and that is critical especially in a diverse community like it’s obtained all over the world.

“The rule of law in Nigeria I think is effective. This administration has tried to abide by the rulings of the court. But, in a legal system, you know, there’s always room for appeal and the state naturally goes its way. There’s a need to try to transform the system into a global environment than exists today so that there is fairness, transparency, equity and justice.”
He pointed out that there were going to be a lot of legal tangles with the elections coming, so there was the need for an unbiased justice system that would give every party their rights.
The Managing Director of Noor Pain De Vie (NPDV), Ivy Clem, who spoke on the retreat’s theme, “Effectively managing and leading people,” said it was important for the public and the civil service to understand the new trends in leadership and the best practice around the world.
“There is always the opportunity to get better but I think the judiciary has been very vibrant and their role is becoming more important,” she said.
