“The walls and roofs of a good number of our courtrooms are collapsing and caving in. Basic facilities, such as toilets, are not available in a good number of courts all over the state.

“The ambience of a typical or average courtroom should reflect an atmosphere of learning, which judges and lawyers subscribe to, and are known for,” he said.

Mr Said lauded Governor Bala Mohammed for providing and supporting the association with office accommodation.

In a remark, Mr Mohammed urged members of the association to engage and diversify in business aside from their profession.

Mr Mohammmed, represented by Ibrahim Kashim, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), pledged continued support to the association.
