The Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) will continue to be a veritable alternative to conventional methods as it evolves and is embraced by litigants.

The Chief Judge of Ogun State, Hon. Justice Mosunmola Dipeolu made this known on Monday 19th February,2024 while declaring open a two- day training organised for forty (40) Ogun State Judiciary Staff as Dispute Resolution Officers (DROs) in the intricacies involved in Alternative Dispute Resolution at the Judiciary Complex in Abeokuta, the State Capital.

In his Lordship keynote address, Hon. Justice Dipeolu, said the training was intended to train the participants on how to identify and sort at the point of filing, matters that can be transferred to the Multi Door Court house for amicable resolution.

Relating barriers faced by people seeking resolution at the regular courts, Hon. Justice Dipeolu said that “Access to Justice is not nearly legal concept but a cornerstone of a fair and equitable society; unfortunately people face significant barriers when seeking resolution of their disputes which include high cost, lengthened court proceedings and limited awareness of Alternative avenues for redress.”

Emphasising on the importance of technology which cannot be over emphasised in the globalisation of all sectors and industries, the Chief Judge, submitted that the Justice sector cannot afford to stay rigid in its approach and manner of dispensation of Justice.

“The advent of technology has caused great change in the way things are done, as the world evolves, the Justice Sector must be involved, as commerce evolved into e-commerce, government to e-governance, so also the Justice system translating to e-Justice” the Chief Judge submitted.

Describing the roles of the participants, the Chief Judge enjoined them to possess a deep understanding of various dispute resolution techniques coupled with interpersonal skills and a commitment to impartiality.

Earlier in His Lordship’s welcome address, Chairman, Governing Council of Ogun State Multi-door Courthouse (OMDC), Hon. Justice Solomon Olugbemi (Rtd.) said the training of the participants is aimed at ensuring that they are able to promote the growth and effective functioning of the Justice system through ADR methods and mechanism especially at the point of filing cases by litigants.

Other dignitaries present at the training include the Chairman of the Ogun State Judiciary training committee, Hon. Justice Olarenwaju Mabekoje, Hon. Justice Osinuga (Member, Ogun State Judiciary training Committee), Hon. Justice Sonia Akinbiyi (Member, Ogun State Judiciary training Committee), Hon. Justice Eniola Fabanwo (ADR Judge), Hon.
