The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has tasked the attorney general of the federation and minister of Justice, Later Fagbemi to prioritise reforms in Nigeria’s justice system.
The president of the association, Yakubu Maikyau, disclosed this to State House correspondents yesterday after meeting with President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa, Abuja . According to him, the areas mostly in need of urgent attention include issues like outdated salaries for judicial officers and lengthy court processes.
The NBA president, who described Fagbemi’s appointment as a perfect fit for the role, expressed optimism while urging collaboration between the legal community and the government. He was at the villa to thank the President ahead of the association’s conference scheduled for the weekend.
