After the session, a mentor, Dr. Nuraen Dindi lauded the participants while correcting some assertions during the trial and encouraging the team to study the rules and regulations guiding arbitration proceedings.

The Registrar General, ACCI-DRC Aisha Ado Abdullahi who also lauded the efforts of the team, stated that at the start of the programme she was sceptical on its Impact on the mentees but the performance today has proven that mentorship progranmme has impacted greatly on the mentees.

She said it is going to be tough to pick the best because they are all doing well but still urging them to go back and study the arbitration and conciliation Act and master its Provisions adding that it will not only guide them through the moot trial but in live trials. “My advice is for you to go and study the Act as well as the DRC Rules 2019 to get yourselves better acquainted with the procedural rules. “Congratulations to you all, I am sure the sky is your beginning.”

The Registrar, Chidinma Onyiaorah also added that the team was able to work within the time allotted but advised that they should be more audible next time so that the arbitrator and audience can hear them clearly.
