The conferment of the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) on 29 selected lawyers will hold today as scheduled.
The Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee (LPPC), earlier this year, announced the names of 30 successful candidates for the rank.
But, the LPPC, in a statement on Friday, said it has deferred the conferment of the title on the only female on the list, Oluwatoyin Ajoke Bashorun.
The statement signed by the committee’s Secretary, Hadizatu Uwani Mustapha, said the decision to defer the conferment of the rank on Mrs. Bashorun was taken at a meeting of the LPPC held on Friday.
The 29 lawyers include Festus Keyamo, Olusola Alexander Oke, Akinlolu Osinbajo, Prof. Adebambo Adewepo and Prof. Adedeji Adekunle.
Also named are Chibuike Nwokeukwu, Johnnie Egwuonwu, Bert Igwilo, Sylvester Enema, Ikenna Egbuna, Wilcox Aberton and others.
