Multi-door courthouse lauds successful ADR in Enugu

Tue Jan 28th, 2020 - Enugu

With the successful settlement of 174 cases that had lingered in various courts in the state during its “Settlement Week”, the Enugu State Multi-Door Courthouse (ESMDC), has said that its establishment has become a landmark development in the advancement of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in Nigeria.

State director of the Multi-Door Courthouse, Mrs. Caroline Etuk, told the Guardian that the establishment had impacted the justice system by reducing time frame and caseloads of the courts in the state, adding that it had provided satisfactory and cost-effective justice to litigants.

Etuk said the agency inaugurated with the primary mandate to provide ADR services last year, organized its first settlement week in the state with a nine –man committee headed by Justice Anthony Onovo.
