Former Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki will chair the maiden Arewa Young Lawyers’ Forum (Arewa YLF) summit scheduled to be held this year in Abuja.

Arewa YLF chairman, Mr Olayinka Dauda Jimoh made this known on Friday after leading the group’s executive committee and some other members of the Summit’s Technical Planning Committee on a courtesy call on the former Kwara State Governor in his Abuja home.

Jimoh, who noted that Saraki presided over the 8th Senate which passed the “Not too young to rule” Bill into law, was only one of the many prominent Nigerians invited for the summit.

He expressed optimism that several governors invited for the event would honour the invitation.

“I urge young lawyers across the board to attend the summit which has the theme ‘Building a sustainable legal practice’,” Jimoh said.

He explained that the two-day event will feature, among others, an election to usher in new national officers.
Jimoh, who was elected as pioneer chairman in 2018, said having ended their tenure, he and his executive committee would hand over to new leaders.
