Adamawa state governor, Sen Mohammed Umar Jibrilla, urged the officials of the Nigeria Law School to fastrack the process of establishing faculty of law at its state University in Mubi.
He made this call when the Director General of the Nigeria law school, Prof. Isa Ciroma Hayatu, led a delegation to pay a curtesy visit at government house in Yola.
The governor explained that the establishment of the faculty would produce more lawyers that would add value to the development of the state and the country in general.
He stated that the state government has invested so much at the Yola Campus of the Nigerian Law School, emphasising that his administration, “will continue to render all the necessary support and assistance for the growth of the institution”.
Commissioner of Justice, Bala Sanga, said the state is privileged to host one of the law schools, disclosing that, “some of our laws including proceeds of crime and administration of justice laws are being reformed and domesticated in such a way that states like Sokoto, Plateau and Kaduna are emulating the move”.
Speaking earlier, Director General of Nigeria Law School, Professor Isa Ciroma Hayatu, said the purpose of the visit was to inspect a one thousand three hundred capacity auditorium and solicited governor’s assistance to provide an ambulance and a hostel block at the Yola campus of the school.
He said, “Yola campus is currently hosting only three hundred students but with collaboration we can house more students which will add value to the economic wellbeing of the state”.
