SANship: Hakeem Lawal Congratulates Ciroma of Ilorin, five other Kwarans

The Social Democratic Party (SDP) Governorship candidate in Kwara State, Hakeem Oladimeji Lawal has congratulated six born lawyers recently elevated to status of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

Hakeem Lawal in a statement issued on Friday congratulated the Ciroma of Ilorin, Alhaji Abubakar Bature Sulu-Gambari and others on their admittance into the “Inner Bar”.

The Ciroma who is the first son of our revered Emir, is also the first person to rise to the status of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) amongst offsprings of the Alimi dynasty.

His conferment as a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) by the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee is indeed a good news to all indigenes of Ilorin Emirate.

The SDP Candidate writes: “I also congratulate other notable Kwarans like Prof. Muhammed Taofeeq Abdulrazaq, Wahab Kunle Shittu, Oladipo Akanmu Tolani, Lukman Oyebanji Fagbemi, and Mumini Ishola Hanafi who made the list.

“I wish them all the best in the discharge of their duties, and Allah’s guidance on their everyday affairs”, he added.
