Kano state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has advised Nigerian lawyers and judges to always conduct their duties  within  the premise of their conscience.

Ganduje stated that access to justice is only feasible, if  the body of lawyers and benchers resort to allowing  their conscience to prevail in all matters relating to the dispensation of justice in  the country.

Speaking at the  day three of the NBA Kano branch Law Week 2022,  Ganduje  urge the body of legal practitioners and benchers to  always  invoke the spirit of  truth and  honesty  in the discharge of their legal duties.

The governor represented by his deputy, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, made the remark while declaring open  the public lecture organized  by NBA Kano branch as part  of activities to mark the Law  week, with  the theme, Legal Practice at a Cross Roads: Challenges of Lawyering in the Face of Nigeria’s Current Political and Economic Climate.

Speaking on the theme , in his words said “ who are those that go to court, it is the lawyers, who are those that sit in court,  as judges they are also  lawyers, the whole exercise belong to lawyers, if they do the right thing we will all follow. Because we also run to the courts, when we are in trouble.

“the executive arm of government can only contribute, it is only the lawyers that can sit down and make sure justice prevail, if lawyers and judges do it right, we will all get it right, in our actions we should be guided by our conscience. If we are guided by our conscience we will get it right.”
