The Federal High Court of Nigeria has launched an automated system of filing cases by litigants and lawyers as part of measures to reduce the rigours being encountered in the old system of filing of cases at the court. At the official launch of the system in Abuja, the Deputy Chief Registrar, Litigation of the Court, Christine Ende, said the court would temporarily continue the use of the manual method alongside the digital system.
The e-filing system launched by the Federal High Court at its headquarters in Abuja is said to be adopted by all divisions of the court in the country. Speaking at the launching of the programme, the Deputy Chief Registrar, Litigation of the Court said that the new system was adopted in line with the best global practices for the judiciary.
Officials of the court used the occasion to assure legal practitioners of maximum cooperation from the court and that they will do everything possible to avoid difficulties in the new system of filing cases.
