The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr John Kayode Fayemi has congratulated the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Ekiti, Honourable Wale Fapohunda and a former law maker who represented Ekiti South Senatorial Constituency, Senator Adeniyi as they attain the position of Senior Advocate of Nigeria, (SAN).
The Governor while congratulating the Attorney General on Friday said he merited the elevation because of his excellent records over the years.
He also added that elevation of the Attorney General as a silk would further enrich the judicial system in the state.
He also described the elevation of Senator Adeniyi, as a welcome development. According to him the former law maker is a legal practitioner of repute who is worthy of the new rank.
The Governor also congratulated others who made the list of 72 eminent lawyers that got elevated as SANs, urging them to use their new status to ensure the enthronement of justice and fairness in the country.
“I congratulate Barrister Fapounda, our indefatigable Attorney General and our distinguished Senator Adeniyi on their elevation as SANs. This couldn’t have come at a better time than now when the State is in a celebration mood, commemorating the 25th anniversary of the creation of Ekiti State.
“Both Fapounda and Adeniyi are distinguished Ekiti sons who rose to the top of their professional callings by dint of hard work and commitment to professionalism. Their elevation is thus a reward for their diligence. This, I believe would also spur our young ones to dare to dream and work for the realisation of their dreams.”, the Governor said.
