30 Salem University graduates called to Bar – VC

Prof. Alewo Johnson-Akubo, Vice Chancellor, Salem University Lokoja, said on Wednesday that 30 graduates of the university had been called to bar by the Body of Benchers (BOB) in Nigeria.

The VC described the development as “cheering and encouraging news” for the institution.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the new lawyers are among the first set of law students to graduate from the College of Law of the university.

The Vice Chancellor congratulated the ”change agents,”  adding that “it’s an eloquent testimony of the relentless pursuit of the vision of raising global leaders by the visionary and founder, Dr. Sam Amaga.”.

He, however, warned the new lawyers and solicitors against sharp practices capable of jeopardising their images and those of the institution.

Johnson-Akubo charged them to be good ambassadors of the university by proving their worth as credible lawyers and solicitors.

He noted that for them to have successfully passed through the Nigerian Law School after their graduation and got called to the bar, it was indeed a feat worth celebrating.

“We, as an institution and their Alma Mata, are so happy with the progress they are making in their legal career.

“As it stands today, they are full-fledged lawyers and solicitors who can be advocating for the millions of people and organizations needing their services in and outside the country.

“It’s our hope that they will do their best to serve the nation well as good ambassadors of Salem University,” he said.

According to him, there is a need for caution against greed and money temptation so as not to put themselves in trouble.
