Written by on February 13, 2023

The Chairman of the Nigerian Body of Benchers, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), has pleaded with Nigerians, including lawyers, not to pull down the Judiciary with criticisms.

Olanipekun was recently appointed a visiting Professor of Legal Practice by the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) during the institution’s seventh convocation ceremony.

Ariwoola said those who had been venting convoluted anger were ignorant of the law, adding that the insinuations that the apex court justices were bought over was nothing but bizarre expression of ignorance.

Olanipekun urged lawyers to subject any matter or judgment of the courts to criticism in law journals, law reports or or write ups, and not by abusing the justices.

The Nation newspaper reports that The former NBA president stressed that abuses do not constitute arguments and would not improve arguments.
