The High Court has unlimited original jurisdiction to hear and determine any civil or criminal proceedings under any law and such other original jurisdiction as is conferred on it under the Law. It also has original jurisdiction in any matter arising under our Constitution or involving its interpretation. It is the Court of Disputed Returns in matters affecting elections to Parliament. Further, it has jurisdiction to hear and determine appeals from the lower courts.

 

Probate Jurisdiction is also a section in the High Court dealing with grants and application of probate filed under the Succession, Probate & Administration Act. Order 76 of the High Court Rules and other practice directions comes into play in as far as the probate application. The Probate Section is also responsible for the registration of Wills and the processing of FNPF Invalid Nomination & Valid Minor Nominee applications. This is governed by the Wills Act (Cap 59) and the FNPF Act 2011.
