Adegboruwa Named African Bar justice Commission Chair
The African Bar Association AFBA has appointed activist lawyer Mr Ebun Olu Adegboruwa as its Justice Sector Programme Commission Chairman.
The lawyer was notified of the appointment in an October 26 letter signed by AFBA President Hannibal Uwaifo and Secretary-General Mrs Flavania Charles of Tanzania.
The association said the appointment followed Adegboruwa’s recommendation by its Qualifications Committee, which found him “eminently fit to hold this highly exalted position”.
The letter reads: “The Justice Sector Commission is a new Committee of AFBA and is aimed at tackling issues relating to the justice system in Africa and fashioning a blueprint model for our continental justice system that can stand the scrutiny of the best international standard.”
“The Commission has powers to advise AFBA and react on her behalf publicly on burning issues. Other duties of the Commission include, but are not limited to preparing agendas, resource persons for AFBA conferences, workshops, meetings, etc.”
“The Commission is also expected to seek sponsorship for its activities and programmes as may be specified by the Executive Council from time to time. You may wish to discuss other details with the President.”
