COVID-19: Lawyers commend CJN for suspending court sittings

Thu Mar 26th, 2020 - Nationwide

Legal practitioners have applauded the directive by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, (CJN), Justice Tanko Mohammad, for ordering the suspension of all court sittings except in matters that are urgent, for 14 days because of COVID-19.

Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN), the lawyers said the directive was a welcomed development as only those who were alive could seek justice.

Mrs Florence Dagema, who practices in the Federal Capital Territory, said that she had expected the directive to come a lot earlier.
