The former president of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Dr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN) has called on lawyers in the country to stop heating up the nation’s polity under the pretence of Chicago State University saga.

Agbakoba (SAN) gave the advice in a statement issued by its Media Assistant, ‘Niyi Odunmorayo and emailed to this medium. 

In the statement, the Senior lawyer, said he is always ashame seeing lawyers on television arguing one way or the other on the merits or demerits of the Chicago State University matter, the situation he described as the ‘most unhelpful’.

He therefore called on the current NBA President to call out lawyers that breach rules of ethics by turning the media into a Court of Law. 

Agbakoba SAN statement reads: “The cacophony of discordant voices on Tinubu/Atiku over the certificate matter is completely out of hand. This utter nonsense from arm chair lawyers is heating up Nigeria dangerously.

“Please can we keep our opinions and views to ourselves awaiting a decision of the Supreme Court.

“Am so ashamed to see Lawyers on Television arguing one way or the other on the merits or demerits of the Chicago State University matter. This is most unhelpful! I call out all media that tolerate this nonsense of adjudicating the CSU matter on TV and Newspapers.

“I urge the President of the Nigerian Bar Association to call out lawyers that breach rules of ethics by turning the media into a Court of Law. 

“Can we please stop heating up our country!!! Let us allow the Supreme Court of Nigeria to make a judicial pronouncement which is binding on us all!!!! This public nonsense must stop.”
