The Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee (LPPC) on Friday, October 22, admitted an error it made in the list of lawyers promoted recently to the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).
Hajjo Sarki Bello, the LPPC's secretary and acting chief registrar of the Supreme Court, in a statement on Friday, disclosed that one of the names in the list was a grave mistake, The Nation reports.
Bello noted that whereas the actual name of the appointee is Osaka, Benjamin Nwora esq, the name on the list at the time it was released was Nworka Chidi Benjamin esq.

“In the press release issued by this office yesterday, 21st October 2021 announcing the list of successful applicants for the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Nworka, Chidi Benjamin, Esq, listed as No 43 was mistakenly included in the list of advocate appointees.
“The actual successful applicant that ought to be in the said list is Osaka, Benjamin Nwora, Esq."
The committee's head, therefore, apologised to Nigerians for the mix-up and added that the error has been fixed as Osaka Benjamin Nwora is now listed as number 21.
