“My position at the hearing was that we must not politicise the establishment of Law School campuses. Such decision should be left at the discretion of the Council for Legal Education, which is empowered by the Act that established it.

“Moreover, there are existing campuses of the Law School spread across the six geo-political zones.

“My view was supported by the Council for Legal Education, Nigeria Bar Association, Body of Benchers, several of my other colleagues.”
