Today, 21 lawyers were conferred the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria by the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee. The new SANs will join 408 lawyers both living and dead who had been conferred with the rank since its inception in 1975. The only
female among the 21 successful lawyers, Akeredolu, was one of the 3 females in a total of 124 applicants that applied for the rank when the application entry opened in January.
The 21 lawyers were selected after an interview of the 50 shortlisted candidates held on Tuesday and Wednesday. Keyamo was shortlisted for the final interview last year too but did not make the final list. This made the 2nd time he got so close to getting the rank after previous attempts that failed to earn him an opportunity for the final interview…. Keyamo is currently looking for who’d buy d cow he bought in anticipation of becoming a SAN today…..
