Big Brother Naija housemate Cee-C has sparked a debate about legal education after claiming that the Nigerian judiciary makes laws.
Cee-C, a lawyer, made the claim during a conversation with other housemates on the reality show. She said that the judiciary is responsible for making laws because it interprets them in the courts.
However, Cee-C’s claim is incorrect. The Nigerian judiciary is responsible for interpreting and applying laws, but it does not make them. The Nigerian legislature is responsible for making laws.
Cee-C’s claim has sparked a debate about the quality of legal education in Nigeria. Some people have argued that her claim is evidence that law schools in Nigeria are not doing enough to teach students about the basics of the Nigerian legal system.
Others have argued that Cee-C’s claim is simply a mistake that anyone can make. They have said that it is possible that she simply made a slip of the tongue or that she was not thinking clearly when she made the claim.
Regardless of the reason for Cee-C’s claim, it is clear that there is a need for more education about the Nigerian legal system, both for law students and for the general public.
