Legal luminaries, including Afe Babalola’s daughter and Femi Falana’s wife, along with 56 others, have been promoted to the esteemed rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) by the Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee (LPPC), All Nigeria Latest News reports.

Headed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, the committee confirmed the appointment of the new SANs, comprising 57 legal practitioners and one academician.

In a statement by the Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court/Secretary of the LPPC, Hajo Sarki-Bello, it was revealed that these new SANs were selected based on their outstanding contributions to the legal profession and their unwavering commitment to the ethical standards of the field.

The statement noted that the LPPC reviewed four separate petitions against some of the applicants, dismissing them due to a lack of merit.

The inauguration of the new Senior Advocates is scheduled for Monday, November 27, at the Supreme Court complex, presided over by the CJN.

Among those elevated to the prestigious rank are human rights activist Kayode Ajulo, Funmi Falana (wife of Femi Falana), Felix Ota Offia, Lawrence Bankole Falade, Kingsley Obamogie, Abiola Isiaq Oyebanji, Bomo Olakunle Agbebi, Daniel Uruakpa, and Oseloka Godwin Osuigwe.

Other recipients of the honor include Babatunde Adeoye, Babaseyi Joseph, Emmanuel Moses Enoidem, Kehinde Olufemi Aina, Nghozi Oleh, Aaron Chile Okoroma, Ibrahim Angulu, and Olayiwola Afolabi, among others.

Hajo Sarki-Bello emphasized that the Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) title is bestowed as a mark of excellence upon members of the legal profession who have demonstrated distinction as advocates and academics. The committee also clarified that the four petitions received against some applicants were thoroughly reviewed and found to lack merit, leading to their dismissal.
