Generally, the protection and promotion of human rights is a core function of the three terms of government to wit: The executive, legislature and the judiciary. In particular, judicial protection of human rights becomes expedient not only for the rule of law but the determination of equality governance. For example, an organized government needs a functioning legal and judicial system to bring forth its aspirations through an enormous regard for the protection and promotion of human rights. On this note, this dissertation aimed at examining the effectives of the judiciary in discharging its duty in the enforcement of human rights in Nigeria through the study of the existing legal writings on the subject matter with a view to strengthening the institution in the final analysis. The sources of information relied upon were relevant books, articles in Journals publication, judicial authorities, statutes, conferences and internet materials. In the course of the research it was found among others that the judicial remedies which are in place to redress human rights violations are not adequate as a result of non-respect for the judiciary, corruption and political influence which leads to the non-enforcement of judgments and orders of the Court. Against this backdrop, this dissertation concluded by recommending amongst others that the current strive against corruption by the government should not be confined to the Judiciary but to the society at large in other to chastise and strengthen the institution to be able to make for the best means of protecting human rights in Nigeria.
1.1 Background to the Study
The protection and enforcement of human rights, should be the core concern of very human as
they are rights that one is entitled to by just being a human and it is a universal right. These
rights are not rights created by virtue of legislations alone rather, they are inherent. Although,
Nigeria has seriously improved in its constitutional provisions regarding human rights,
however, there are areas where improvements needs to be made just as the American Human
Rights Reports of 20121 pointed out, these areas includes; several killings by Boko Haram,
abuses and killings by Nigerian forces, absence of equality and problems of freedom of speech.
Unfortunately, Africa as a continent has been denoted as the land of unsuccessful, uneven and ill
administered conflict that is poverty-ridden.
Also, there appear to be a high level of corruption in the judiciary and the government
itself, it is evident by the hounding of corrupt judges by the present President Buhari‟s
administration, which lifted the veil of judges for the entire nation to see how the temple of
justice has been destroyed because of corruption.2
The judiciary plays a significant role in the promotion and protection of human rights in
any country, because it is the last hope of the common man. It is pertinent to note that human
rights can be adequately protected by the judiciary if the powers and role of judiciary is
preserved and devoid of injustice and corruption.
