Arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism is centered on parties’ agreement and autonomy thereby making way for amicable resolution of the dispute whatever the outcome is, based on award rendered by the arbitral tribunal.
The article discussed the judicial intervention in arbitration between Nigeria and the United States of America on comparative basis of the two jurisdictions.
The article finds that arbitration in Nigeria is regularly on attack basis and contrary to the position in the USA, and if care is not taken, this may wreck arbitration in Nigeria.
The article concludes that the judiciary should play more supportive roles, than undue intervention. It recommends that there should be a more conducive environment and improved infrastructure for Nigerian arbitration to be in the same template with the U.S arbitration.
