As members of Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) gather, in Ibadan capital of Oyo State for Delegates Conference, its national President, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) has urged the Oyo State Government to address the issues that led to the strike action by the judicial workers in the state.
He gave the advice this morning during a courtesy visit to Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala as part of the activities lined up for the conference.
He noted that it was not good for the state that its judicial system is paralyzed, adding that many things would be affected by the industrial action.
He also urged government at all levels to ensure credible and hitch-free election in 2011, adding that it is only credible election that could save the nation from chaos.
â€œLawyers are here to hold election into the national offices of NBA. It will be credible and hitch-free. The nation should learn how to organise credible election from lawyers,â€ he said.
Governor Akala in his reaction refused to comment on the NBAâ€™s appeal on the ongoing judicial workersâ€™ strike.
He stated that it would be difficult for him to attend the conference because of his daughterâ€™s wedding slated for tomorrow and Friday.
He, however, assured that he would be fully represented at the occasion.
