Hope for Expedited prosecution of Arbitration related litigation in Nigeria under the Arbitration and Mediation Act, 2023

Arbitration related litigation in Nigeria can be slow.[1] Gorilla tactics may be employed by recalcitrant parties who may seek to prevent the constitution of arbitration panel, delay the arbitral proceedings or prevent the enforcement of the arbitral award. Nigeria’s Arbitration and Mediation Act, 2023 (AMA) is replete with several mechanisms to ease the arbitration process. This piece highlights four ways AMA may be a game-changer and offer hope for the expeditious prosecution of arbitration related litigation.
