*Says There Is An Urgent Need To Salvage the Reputation Of Legal Profession Starting From the Benchers
*Says Public Confidence In Legal Profession At An All-time Low

In the letter dated 13th of January, 2023, and addressed to the Secretary of the Body of Benchers, the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Yakubu Chonoko Maikyau declared that public confidence in the legal profession is at an all-time low, and stressed the need to salvage the reputation, image and integrity of the profession.

Lamenting the dent cast on the legal profession by the solicitation email sent by a Former Partner at Olanipekun’s law firm, Maikyau stated that a collective action of the Body of Benchers is absolutely necessary and imperative in letting Nigerians know that the members of this Body are not who the email says they are, and no one can do to this Body what the email suggested the Chairman does and can do.
