 Nigerian Elections - Amina Zakari Is Not the Problem
Daily Trust (Abuja), August 22, 2015

 Timi and I served as technical experts on elections with the Independent Elections Commission of Liberia to organize the first post civil war election in that country in 1997. Some 5 days ago, he called me to commend last week's article in this column, titled, "Who should the police tear gas?" Tim was delighted that i openly commended Mrs. Amina Zakari, the Acting Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for her policy decision not to defend in court an election marred by malpractices done by her officials. He also liked my suggestion that INEC must bend backwards to develop a positive disposition towards candidates who protest any unwholesome electoral conduct. As a veteran election observer who knows the high degree of harassment to which the electoral commission in Nigeria is always subjected, Timi hoped that Nigerian politicians would soon appreciate that the independence of an electoral body includes the reverence with which it is treated by political parties and their candidates. Nigerian politicians no doubt need to evolve a tradition of some measure of decency in its dealings with INEC instead of the current practice of everyone throwing missiles at the commission over anything they are dissatisfied with which leaves her with a fragile credibility.

Taking an inspiration from the observations made in C.O. 931 of 2012, the defendant no. 1 took out an application challenging the maintainability of the suit and invited the Court to dismiss the same. The aforesaid revisional application was filed in connection with an injunction proceeding and, therefore, the observations made therein are restricted on the said application and is mere tentative. It is no longer res integra that the interim order is passed in aid of the final relief. The Court should avoid in making observations or findings at the interlocutory stage, which may have a serious repercussion on the merit of the suit itself. This Court, therefore, records that the observations made in the earlier revisional application, which originated from the injunction proceeding, is tentative and, therefore, the Trial Court did not commit any error in rejecting the application, This Court, therefore, does not find any ground warranting interference with the impugned order. The revisional application is thus dismissed. There will be no order as to costs. 2 (HARISH TANDON, J.)

Mirror Publications, August 20, 2015 Thursday

 60% of relief was deducted as he was driving on wrong side of road. HC betters it to 50% A techie's family which had lost 60 per cent of the compensation awarded by an accident tribunal got relief from the High Court which set it at 50 per cent. The tribunal had taken away 60 per cent of the Rs 66.42 lakh claim it awarded, in response to the Rs 1 crore compensation demand made by the family. The deduction was because the accident victim, B Umapathi, was driving his car on the wrong side of the road when he ran head-on into a truck. The family - Umapathi's wife and two minor daughters - appealed to the High Court which ruled that the techie as well as the lorry driver involved in the accident were equally responsible. The lorry driver driving a bigger vehicle ought to have taken more precaution to avoid the accident, it said.

Mondaq Business Briefing, August 20, 2015 Thursday

 Catastrophic injury award payment structures may change if proposed new legislation is introduced. Such legislation, if passed in current form, will give the courts the power to make periodic payments instead of lump-sum awards in such cases. The proposals will be welcomed by practitioners who have, for years, acknowledged that lump sums can miss the mark of fair compensation and can fail to take into account a claimant's future personal circumstances, future investment returns and inflation rates. The general scheme of the Civil Liability (Amendment) Bill 2015 recently published by the Department of Justice proposes giving the courts, in catastrophic injury cases, power to make periodic payment orders (PPOs) instead of the traditional lump sum.

Mondaq Business Briefing, August 18, 2015 Tuesday

 It ain't over till it's over: the Supreme Court has the final word on damages in Bunge SA v Nidera BV in the context of the GAFTA Default Clause On 1 July 2015 the Supreme Court, being the last instance in a five year long dispute, delivered a unanimous judgment in Bunge SA v Nidera BV,1 a case which will be very familiar for grain industry participants trading in the Black Sea region as it concerned the consequences of the Russian grain export embargo in 2010. The judgment has immediately been labelled in London legal circles as a "landmark decision" and a "long awaited ruling" on damages for repudiation of commercial contracts. While it is still arguable how much practical impact the case will have on the resolution of commercial disputes, and GAFTA arbitration in particular, it is nevertheless of significance. First of all, the Supreme Court has provided valuable guidance on the application of general common law principles for the assessment of damages to cases of wrongful repudiation of contract. In doing so, the Court upheld it's own findings in The Golden Victory; a case perhaps better known for the amount of received criticism and the careful resistance of a number of commercial judges and arbitrators in following it.

 Counteracting heat stress 
in poultry production
World Poultry (English), August 14, 2015

 By Dr. Jan Dirk van der Klis, Delacon Biotechnik GmbH Birds are homeothermic. Their thermoneutral zone lies between 18 and 36°C, but the upper critical temperature is strongly dependent on the relative air humidity (RH%), which is lower at higher RH%, on breed and on production performance. Also the age of the parent stock and brooding conditions affect the heat tolerance of the offspring. As long as the ambient temperature is lower than the birds' body temperature, heat loss from the core to the skin can be increased by radiation, depending on peripheral blood flow. Poultry responds to high environmental temperatures by behavioural changes, which allow them to re-establish heat balance with their surroundings. During periods of heat stress, broilers rest more, stand more quietly or simply sit near walls or waterers. Usually, they lift their wings in order to promote cooling by reducing body insulation. Hyperventilation or "panting" increases during periods of high environmental temperature, leading to increased CO2 loss.Consequences of heat stress
