He said President Muhammadu Buhari was determined to ensure a better life for Nigerians by providing such services as would enhance unhindered access to justice which in the first place, informed the establishment of the Legal Aid Council.
“This retreat is coming at a time when the country needs to ensure that every Nigerian has unhindered access to Justice. The Legal Aid Council has a lot of role to play in this regard and as such, needs to be well-positioned for the task ahead.
