FUNCTION & ACTIVITIES OF THE DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL APPEAL
The birth of the Department of Civil Appeals was necessitated by the paramount need to improve proficiency and industry in the area of the institution and defence of Appeals on behalf and against the Federal Government and its agencies respectively.
Particularly as it relates to the institution of Appeals, it had become quite rife for Federal Government agencies to continue to rest on their oars whenever cases are concluded and decided against them, in spite of the large judgment sums awarded in the suits. Let alone the fact that the judgment sums also continue to accumulate in tripling interests in the absence of any appeal filed against such judgments.
This no doubt, has over the years constituted harsh circumstances of unnecessary financial encumbrance on the economy of the nation, and it was in fact a situation that had to be abated as practicable as possible.
