Succession disputes have been handled by the courts since the introduction of the formal justice system which has singlehandedly dispensed justice. The formal justice, being adversarial in nature, has faced a myriad of challenges that include; complex rules of procedure that undermine access to justice and expeditious disposal of cases, backlog and delays in the disposal of cases thereby eroding public confidence in the Judiciary, manual and mechanical systems of operations that affect efficiency in service delivery, inadequate financial and human resources that contribute to case backlog, inability to absorb donor funds due to complex procurement and other financial procedures and unethical conduct on the part of some judicial officers.
