Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong yesterday by appointing presidents of the Nigerian Bar Association attorneys-general of the federation during his regime, former military president, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, made the association’s elections look like a war.
Lalong said this while swearing in five new judges.
He said: “I remember we had a problem one time with the Bar at the national level when every appointment Babangida made was directly from the bar. He was making bar president as the Attorney General. That killed our Bar because when we went into election, it was like a war. And election was inconclusive.”
The new judges are Geoffrey Mwasu Kamyal, Gedaliah Dayen Fwamyon and Boniface Shalyuun Ngyouu for High Court as well as Muhammad Mustapha Hassan for Shari’a Court of Appeal and Veronica Julcit Dadom for Customary Court of Appeal.
