Almost every country in the world has a supreme court and I believe most of us are very familiar with the Supreme Court we have here in Nigeria but I'll like to show us how the supreme court in 15 other countries look like. Photos of how incredible their buildings are will be shared below.
Before we get to that, I'll like to talk about what a supreme court is and what it stands for in a country
The highest court within the hierarchy of courts in a country is called the supreme court. It can also be called high court of appeal, Apex court or last resort. A decision made by a supreme court is not subject to further review by any other court as such a court always have the final say.
Some countries have several supreme courts which includes a federal court and a supreme court for each member state.
Let's now talk a little about the supreme court in Nigeria
The supreme Court of Nigeria like every other supreme court in other countries, has original jurisdiction in any dispute between the federation and a state or also in between states. The court presently consists of the Chief Justice of Nigeria Mr. Justice I. T. Muhammad, CFR and 17 other justices.
