Lagos Recovers N23.7M, Settles 516 Cases, Advises Residents On Alternative Dispute Resolution

By Benjamin Omoike

The Director, Lagos State Citizens’ Mediation Centre (CMC), Mrs. Abiola Oseni, has urged all residents in Lagos to embrace Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), as a means of resolving misunderstanding.

Mrs. Oseni, who stated this while speaking on the CMC activity report for the month of October 2020, noted that the Centre amicably resolved 516 cases, spanning a wide range of issues such as landlord/tenancy, land disputes and monetary claims, among others.

She added that the total number of cases received during the period was 820, out of which 516 cases were successfully settled; 86 cases were referred to appropriate agencies of government;104 cases were terminated due to non-attendance at mediation sessions by the parties involved, while 114 cases are currently adjourned for further mediation.

The Director averred that the Centre also recovered N23.7million on behalf of parties in the month under review, being the total value of settlement of debt related matters.

While reiterating the commitment of CMC to upholding Law and Order in the state, as espoused in the T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda of the Lagos State Government, Oseni maintained that Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), is less cumbersome and inexpensive in settling different kinds of disagreement among Lagosians.

“Not everybody can afford to pay for legal representation in courts, which is not necessary with the CMC. People should begin to realise that ADR is the only way of getting justice without having to pay for it,” she added.
