CJN To Swear-In 38 SANs
The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, will on Monday, September 23, 2019, at the main Courtroom of the Supreme Court, swear-in 38 new Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs).
This was confirmed in a statement by the Director, Press, and Information of the Supreme Court, Dr. Festus Akande.
The statement noted that the swearing-in ceremony is one of the several programmes lined up to herald the 2019/2020 legal year of the apex Court.
As customary, during such programmes, the CJN will deliver a state-of-the Judiciary address which highlights the performance of the Supreme Court, and by extension, the Nigerian Judiciary in the outgoing 2018/2019 legal year.
Naija News recalls out of the 117 legal practitioners that applied for elevation to the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria in 2019, only 38 were successful at the end of the rigorous exercise.
