ABUJA, Nigeria – The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has pledged the Administration’s readiness to support the Abuja Law School in the provision of residential staff quarters and operational vehicles.

Wike gave the assurance when he received a delegation of officials of the Nigerian Law School (NLS) led by its Director General Prof. Isa Ciroma on a courtesy visit in his office in Abuja. 

The Minister assured that it would be considered for inclusion into the FCT’s 2024 statutory budget.  

Wike said that the FCT Administration will continue to give the necessary support to the agencies of government that conduct businesses within the FCT.

He said the legal profession was his primary constituency and it would be out of place if he is not able to render support when the need arose.

Furthermore, the FCT Minister congratulated the Nigerian Law School on its 60th anniversary and noted that the attainment of 60 years by the legal institution was a major milestone.

“By the grace of God, we wish you a happy 60th birthday. It is not easy to attain the age of 60 and where it has to do with the establishment of an institution. It is not a mere feat. It’s worth celebrating.”

Barr. Wike also thanked the Prof. Ciroma for his nomination as a distinguished award recipient during the anniversary celebration in recognition of his support for the legal institution.

Earlier in his remark, the DG, of Nigerian Law School said they were on the visit to formally welcome the Minister to the FCT and to also thank him for what he has done for the Nigerian Law School as one of its major benefactor over the last 60 years.

Speaking on the contributions of the FCT Minister, to the Law School, the DG said, “Except for the founders of the Law School, nobody has done what you have done for the Nigerian Law School; to do an entire Campus, to also build a 900-capacity hostel in Yenagoa, 1,500 multipurpose hall and other things that we don’t want to mention here”.

The DG however appealed for the intervention of the FCT Minister in the Abuja Law School, especially the provision of residential staff quarters and operational vehicles.  

Prof Ciroma also informed the Minister about the 60 years anniversary of the Nigerian Law School and his nomination as one of the recipients of the Distinguished Award of the institution.
