SANs Salute Acting President Osinbajo for Preventing Democracy by Sacking Daura
Legal counselors on Tuesday, including Senior Advocates of Nigeria, saluted the acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo
(SAN), for calming the Director General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura, of his position.

The acting President, who is a professor of Law and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, pulled in the tributes of his associates, who said he had spared the country's democracy and maintained the matchless quality of the run of law.
In a statement on Tuesday, a former Deputy Director General of the Nigerian Law School, Prof Ernest Ojukwu (SAN), said the acting President had “renewed great hope that our democracy shall survive.”

Ojukwu, a Nigerian Bar Association’s presidential aspirant, said, “I am excited to be counted as a Nigerian, a lawyer and a law teacher by this example of leadership by our acting President.

“I urge all Nigerians, the Nigerian Bar Association inclusive, to play more proactive roles in protecting our democracy, the rule of law and human rights.

“We should not allow a few men and women to destroy our country by impunity.”

Also, Mr Tayo Oyetibo (SAN), said in a statement that the acting President must be commended “for standing up for the supremacy of the rule of law at this difficult phase of Nigeria’s nascent democracy.”

“All lovers of democracy must support him in his decisive action on the unlawful takeover of the National Assembly,” Oyetibo, a protégé of the late human rights crusader, Chief Gani Fawehinmi (SAN), said.

Similarly, two Lagos-based lawyers, Messrs Wahab Shittu and Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, hailed Osinbajo for his decisive action on the DSS invasion of the National Assembly complex.
