A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Gbenga Awomolo, has called on the Bar and the Bench to just humble themselves and do the needful.
Awomolo spoke on behalf of the body of the Senior Advocates at the 2016/2017 new legal year in Abuja on Tuesday. He said this is not time for blame games but a time for humble reflection.
His words: “This is the time to humble ourselves and confess our sins and turn to the Lord for forgiveness. This is the time to plead with those senior advocates who claimed that they know those who are corrupt.
“They should name them, our judges should play above ‘god’ in their decisions for allegations of corruption are so severe.
“How can we clear the bar and the bench from this mess that have brought it so low before the eyes of the public?”
Earlier, the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami promised that the executive would bring to the courts cases of cogent nature and of substance.
Also, Federal Capital Territory Chief Judge, Ishaq Bello, admitted that the judiciary is going through a trying time. “These are indeed trying times for the judiciary of this country…”
