Lagos: state governor sends message to lawyers
Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola added that the Nigerian Bar Association would have to shoulder the blame if members with their requisite training and presence in diverse sectors do not solve the problem.
African website Channels reports that Mr Fashola made the comments when addressing a gathering of eminent jurists including the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mariam Aloma Mukhta.
Mr Fashola said: ‘Wherever and whenever you find anything that is contrary to law, speak up. Let us form a critical mass of a group of people who from today will rise up from this meeting and say that we will dedicate the rest of our lives to handing over to our children and their children a Nigeria that is better than the one that we inherited.’
