JUST IN: List of new Senior Advocates out soon – LPPC


The Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee (LPPC) has distanced itself from reports that the list of successful candidates for the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) this year has been released.

The LPPC, in a statement on Wednesday by the Director (Press and Information), Supreme Court of Nigeria, Dr. Festus Akande said the process for the final selection was still on.

Akande said the LPPC would make public the final list through media advertisement, as it has always done.

The LPPC warned those peddling falsehood about its activities to desist, threatening to go after those behind the false information and subject them to the full weight of the law.

The statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to a story by an online medium that goes by the name, ‘loyalnigerianlawyer.com,’ with the above caption which is currently in circulation with a purported list of ‘successful candidates’ that emerged after the second filtration exercise by the Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee (LPPC).

“We wish to state clearly that the above information is fake, unofficial and untrue. It’s a mere figment of the imagination of the authors who may ostensibly be on a mission to impugn and malign the reputation and integrity of the LPPC with a view to causing confusion and skepticism in the public space.
