This paper aims to examine the growing incidence of judicialisation of politics in Nigeria's democratisation experience against the backdrop of questionable judicial accountability. The article draws on legal and political theory as well as comparative law perspectives. The judiciary faces a daunting task in deepening democracy and (re) instituting the rule of law. The formidable challenges derive in part from structural problems within the judiciary, deficient accountability credentials and the complexities of a troubled transition. Effective judicial mediation of political transition requires a transformed and accountable judiciary. The article calls attention to the need for judicial accountability as a cardinal and integral part of political transitions.
