Elevation of 58 lawyers to SAN good for legal system – Olajengbesi



By Hannah Nathan, Warri

Olukayode Ajulo and 57 other people will be given the title of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), which will improve the inner bar and ultimately the delivery of justice in Nigeria.

Pelumi Olajengbesi, a human rights attorney located in Abuja, says this.

Olajengbesi praised the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee (LPPC) for elevating the group of attorneys in a statement on Thursday, stating.

“There was no question that reputable attorneys would make the final list and receive the distinguished title when the (LPPC) revealed the names of the 69 shortlisted candidates for the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria back in September”.

Recall that on Thursday, at its 159th session, the LPPC, presided over by Justice Kayode Ariwoola, Chief Justice of Nigeria, authorized the promotion of 58 attorneys to the status of Senior Advocates of Nigeria.

The 58 selected candidates would be sworn in on November 27, 2023. The approved applicants were chosen from 69 candidates who were shortlisted.

According to Olajengbesi, the legal community is proud of attorneys for their admirable contributions to Nigerian democracy and government.
