Welcome to the New Testament Writings

By Ezichi Anya Ituma

The manner of the beginning of any pursuit may determine, to a large extent, what one makes out of it. If the approach is negative the outcome is very likely going to be negatively affected. The same is true if the approach is positive. Yet, one can approach the New Testament from a depraved dilemma. Such is the situation we find among many students of New Testament in the tertiary institutions, be it theological college or university.

Afrocentricism and Christianity

By Ituma, Ezichi Anya

This article aims to examine the different strands of incursion of Christianity into African cultural setting. There is an emphasis in Nigeria, however the purpose of the work is to discover those strands that generate conflict between Christianity and African culture and to proffer solutions. It has therefore been noted that even Christianity has a lot of good values the method of introducing it to Africa was shabby. A repackaging of the Gospel of Christianity is there suggested.

The Eritrean Customary Laws: ‘Old-Modern’ Treasures For An Effective Sentencing Regime – The Just Desert System

By Ogubazghi, Habteab Y., and Andemariam, Senai W.

Scholars of contemporary criminal law have identified these purposes as carrying four basic elements:
- reformation (rehabilitation) of the convicted;
- deterrence of the convicted and/or potential criminals from committing further crimes in the future;
- disablement (incapacitation) of the convicted from engaging in criminal acts and thereby protecting the society; and
- retribution (revenge) for the crime committed against the victims and the society.
Reflected in any form or wording, these purposes of criminal law are usually kept together in the penal codes. The essence of keeping all (or some) of these purposes together (and very often in a single article) is that judges, in passing sentences after conviction, are required to keep these purposes in mind and that the sentences shall be carried out in a manner that embodies these purposes together.

Access To Justice And The Alternative remedy Rule In Nigeria’s Public Law Adjudication – Rethinking The Alternative Remedy Rule in Nigeria

By Ogbuabor, L. L. M.

Access to Justice is a very significant component of the Rule of Law and Democracy worldwide. That is why today, the British Department for International Development and other similar agencies are paying serious attention to it.109 In developing democracies, such as Nigeria particularly with its military antecedents in governance, issues concerning access to Justice take the centre stage. More often than not, whenever issues of access to justice come up for discussion, what readily comes to mind are such matters as locus standi, ouster clauses, state immunity and delay in the administration of Justice.
