The organizers highlighted President Maikyau’s distinguished contributions and his commendable impact, aligning with the awards’ objective of recognizing excellence and significant achievements in the legal field. The recognition showcases his commitment to upholding the highest legal practice and education standards.
In another noteworthy development, the General Council of the Bar (GCB) was inaugurated on January 9, 2023, by the YC Maikyau’s administration, with the former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami, CON, SAN, leading the initiative.
Considering the long halt in convening the GCB, this marks a significant milestone. The absence of the GCB over the years created a gap in the regulatory structure of the legal profession, impacting the profession’s ability to address contemporary challenges effectively. This jink was effectively broken by the Maikyau Administration.
The President further charged the GCB with the crucial task of developing a draft of the Rules of Professional Conduct for Legal Practitioners as a top priority.
This initiative reflects the commitment of the current administration to enhance the legal profession’s regulatory framework, ensuring it addresses current issues and challenges effectively.
Congratulations to YC Maikyau on this well-deserved recognition and best wishes for continued success in his contributions to the legal field.
