The Purported New List Of Successful Candidates For SAN Rank Is Fake, Unofficial — Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of Nigeria has said that the news on the release of successful candidates for the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria is fake

In a Notice signed by the Director of Press and Information, Dr. Akande Festus, the Supreme Court made available to TheNigerialawyer(TNL) said the information should be discountenanced. That authentic list will be made public in due course.

He said “Our attention has been drawn to a story by an online medium that goes by the name, “,” with the above caption which is currently in circulation with a purported list of “successful candidates” that emerged after the second filtration exercise by the Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee (LPPC).”

We wish to state clearly that the above information is fake, unofficial, and untrue. It’s a mere figment of the imagination of the authors who may ostensibly be on a mission to impugn and malign the reputation and integrity of the LPPC with a view to causing confusion and skepticism in the public space.

He also said that the information should be discountenanced by whosoever might have come across it.

“For the umpteenth time, we wish to let the public know that any information, especially issues regarding the above topic can only emanate from the office of the LPPC Secretary/Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

He further noted that anything outside this official source should be disregarded.

As has been the practice, all information concerning the LPPC, especially those bordering on the announcement of successful applicants for the award of the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria, are published in reputable national dailies and this year’s own will not be an exception, he Akande added.

“The perpetrators of such illegal act would be apprehended and given appropriate sanctions to serve as a deterrent to others that might be waiting in the queue to do same in the future.

“The LPPC Secretariat wishes to appeal to bloggers of various lawyers’ platforms to henceforth refrain from posting or publishing or aiding in the circulation of unauthorized materials or fake documents said to originate from Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee.

“The Committee may be forced to refer the conduct of such bloggers who are legal practitioners to the appropriate disciplinary committee of Body of Benchers. A word is enough for the wise.

On this note, we wish to inform and assure our esteemed legal community and the general public that the authentic official list of the successful applicants that emerged from the second filtration exercise by the LPPC will be made public through advertorials in the national dailies in due course
