50 Years of Appellate Arbitration Cases Newsletter (Part 3)

In this third publication in the series, ‘50 Years of Arbitration-related Cases at Nigeria’s Appellate Courts,’ G.O. Sodipo & Co.’s dispute resolution team presents a short analysis of how Nigerian appellate courts have responded to arbitration disputes involving Nigerian state governments and state entities in the last fifty years. This exercise revealed that contrary to perceived notions, Nigerian appellate courts are not partial towards state entities who seek to set aside arbitration agreements or awards against them. The exercise demonstrates that in the main, Nigerian appellate courts enforce arbitration clauses and arbitration awards against state entities unless a party waives his right by submitting to the jurisdiction of the courts, or there are other internationally acceptable reasons such as fraud, statute bar and the like that may prevent the enforcement of arbitration clauses or awards.
