A Lagos-based Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Dr Babatunde Ajibade, on Friday advised young legal practitioners to engage in self-development which would enhance their practice as lawyers in an ever-changing society.
It is themed: “The Survival of Young Lawyers in a Highly Competitive Legal Market Amidst Crave for Self- Development.’’
He said that if young lawyers took out time to develop themselves in legal practice, they would stand out and be distinct in the current highly competitive legal market.
Ajibade noted that even as young lawyers of the Bar, there was much more they could do to enhance their practice, especially by being open to learning new skills of practice from senior colleagues.
“Being disposed to learning and having an enduring desire for self-development, is a major factor and drive to a successful life as a legal practitioner.
“As young lawyers, it is important to have set goals and more importantly, to work toward a realisation of these goals,” he said.
He said that this formed the basis for a successful career as a legal practitioner in Nigeria.
He added that it would pave the way for them to be marketable to prospective employers.
The legal practitioner advised all participants to take courses online to broaden their horizon.
Ajibade also suggested that the young lawyers should get professional certification from reputable institutes to proceed for post graduate studies and mastering specific areas of law where they could develop expertise.

Sancho hat-trick keeps Borussia Dortmund in title hunt
England forward Jadon Sancho capped a blistering individual performance with a second half hat-trick which helped Borussia Dortmund to a 6-1 win at Paderborn on Sunday.
The victory kept alive their slim Bundesliga title hopes and left Borussia Dortmund second on 60 points from 29 games with five rounds of matches remaining.
They are seven behind champions and league leaders Bayern Munich, while Paderborn remained rooted to the foot of the standings on 19 points.
With prolific 19-year-old Norway striker Erling Haaland sidelined by a knee injury, the visitors missed a string of chances in the first half.
But Sancho lit up the second half as Borussia Dortmund ran riot.
Thorgan Hazard, who took Haaland’s place upfront, gave Borussia Dortmund a 54th minute lead from close range.
This was after goalkeeper Leopold Zingerle, who had made a string of good saves, failed to deal with an Emre Can cross from the left.
Sancho made it 2-0 with a simple tap-in from two metres three minutes later, thanks to some good work from Julian Brandt.
An Uwe Hunemeier penalty kick briefly rekindled Paderborn’s challenge in the 72nd minute.
It turned out to be a false dawn as Sancho scored Borussia Dortmund’s third two minutes later with a fine left foot shot from inside the penalty area and Paderborn fell apart in the closing stages.
Achraf Hakimi drilled in the fourth in the 85th minute with a crisp shot into the far corner and Marcel Schmelzer added the fifth in the 89th from close range.
The unstoppable Sancho broke away at the halfway line barely 60 seconds later.
With Paderborn throwing everybody forward for a corner kick, he had all the time and space to put the icing on the cake with a clinical finish.
Paderborn visit fifth-placed RB Leipzig.

U.S. to impose new sanctions against Hezbollah: envoy
U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dorothy Shea announced on Sunday that the United States plans to impose new sanctions against Hezbollah and possibly against supporters of the group, OTV local TV channel reported.
“New sanctions will be put in place starting June 1,” Shea said in a televised interview.
Shea denied the U.S. intention to cause a collapse to the Lebanese economy by imposing sanctions against Hezbollah, adding that the United States will make announcements next week to provide scholarships for students at the American University of Beirut and the Lebanese American University.
Lebanese experts have expressed their worries about the U.S. intention of putting obstacles in the way of Lebanon’s access to funds by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) given the role of Hezbollah in the government.
Lebanon is currently negotiating with the IMF the possibility of funds in a bid to restructure the country’s economy and implement necessary reforms for economic revival.
Thousands defy mass-gathering ban in UK to protest over police killing of George Floyd
Despite the ban of mass gatherings in Britain, thousands of people gathered Sunday in London and Manchester to protest over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man suffocated to death by a white police officer in the mid-western U.S. state of Minnesota on Monday.
Chanting “no justice, no peace”, the protesters gathered in London’s landmark Trafalgar Square shortly after 1 p.m. (1200 GMT) before marching through Westminster to Downing Street.
Videos posted on twitter showed people shouting “I can’t breathe” on the square. Taking to their knee, they also chanted “George Floyd“, as some of them held banners reading “Black Lives Matter“.
Protests were also held in Manchester and outside the U.S. embassy in London.
Meanwhile, London‘s Metropolitan Police said on its twitter account that police are aware of demonstrators gathering outside the U.S. embassy.
“Officers are on scene & engaging with those in attendance. An appropriate policing plan is in place,” it added.
Protesters continued to take to the streets on Saturday in at least 30 U.S. cities over the death of Floyd.
As many as 25 cities across 16 U.S. states have imposed curfews while at least eight states and Washington D.C. have called on the National Guard to help respond to protests and unrest as of Saturday.
Nearly 1,400 people have been arrested during the protests in 17 cities since Thursday, according to an AP tally, which added that the actual number is likely higher as protests continue on Saturday night.
In Washington D.C. on Saturday, protesters gathered outside the White House for the second straight day, chanting “hands up, don’t shoot” and “I can’t breathe.”
Threatened U.S. sanctions benefit no one: Hong Kong business community
In response to the U.S. threat to cancel the special treatment for Hong Kong, the Hong Kong business community said it will not do good to anyone, as this will not only damage the mutually beneficial relationship between the two sides, but also harm the interests of U.S. companies and investors in Hong Kong.
In a statement released on Saturday, the Chinese Manufacturers’ Association of Hong Kong expressed regret over the U.S. decision, noting that it would undermine the mutually beneficial economic and trade relations between Hong Kong and the United States over the years and disrupt the world‘s free trade order.
The association said Hong Kong is the largest source of the U.S. trade surplus in goods, and Hong Kong‘s special status is the best channel for the U.S. enterprises to enter the Chinese mainland market. The U.S. move not only damages the mutually beneficial relationship between the two sides, but also damages the interests of U.S. companies and investors in Hong Kong, casting a shadow on the future economic and trade relations between Hong Kong and the United States.
Ng Wang Pun, president of the Chinese Manufacturers’ Association of Hong Kong, said the national security legislation for Hong Kong is aimed at plugging Hong Kong‘s legal loopholes to protect national security and safeguard the nation’s sovereignty, which will help to maintain a safe, friendly and free business environment in Hong Kong.
According to Raymond Young, CEO of the Chinese Manufacturers’ Association of Hong Kong, most of Hong Kong‘s trade in goods is re-exports, with exports to the United States accounting for only 0.1 percent of the total export volume. Moreover, the industry began to diversify its business to Southeast Asia and other places during the U.S.-China trade tensions, so the it is not expected to have a great impact.
Tara Joseph, president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong (AmCham), said that it was “a sad day” for Americans in Hong Kong when the U.S. announced it would cancel the special treatment for Hong Kong. However, this does not mean that U.S. companies will withdraw from Hong Kong, she said. The AmCham will continue to work with its members to maintain Hong Kong‘s status as a vital business center.
Felix Chung, honorary chairman of Hong Kong Apparel Society Limited, said that there will not be much impact on Hong Kong‘s economy for the time being even if the U.S. cancels the special treatment for Hong Kong.
Jeffrey Lam, a member of the Legislative Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, said the United States earns a trade surplus of about 30 billion U.S. dollars in Hong Kong every year. The U.S. decision will be beneficial to nobody.
The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the Belt and Road Initiative will bring a large number of development opportunities to Hong Kong, Lam said, urging Hong Kong people and businesses not to worry about the national security legislation, but to focus on how to develop the economy after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Daniel Yip, chairman of the Federation of Hong Kong Industries, said the United States intends to restrict the export of high-tech products to Hong Kong, which is believed to have an impact on high-end scientific research in universities.
However, in recent years the United States has scrutinized the export of scientific research equipment from universities, and the Hong Kong industry has gradually adapted to the restriction, Yip added.
San Francisco announces curfew for Sunday night after protests
San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced on Saturday night a curfew in the city that will last from 8 p.m. Sunday until 5 a.m. Monday local time with the National Guard on standby.
The measures followed chaos and looting downtown. Stores were damaged and looted in some Bay Area cities, including San Francisco, on Saturday as protests over the death of African American George Floyd in Minneapolis raged on in the region.
“People are hurting right now. They’re angry. I’m angry. The city and the police will support peaceful protests … We can’t tolerate violence and vandalism. Now is the time to go home,” said Breed in a tweet.
Floyd died shortly after a white police officer used his knee to pin Floyd to the ground by the neck.
The city’s Police Chief Bill Scott said that the police start to see an increased level of violence after nightfall.
“There is destruction, fires, looting downtown around Westfield mall. Some of the essential workers at the 4th/Mission garage were assaulted,” San Francisco Supervisor Matt Haney also tweeted.
A Friday night protest in Oakland turned into a riot with dozens of protestors arrested.
Earlier on Saturday, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan also announced a city-wide curfew for Saturday and Sunday after protests broke out downtown.
UNICEF dispatches medical shipment to Yemen’s Sanaa to confront COVID-19
Yemen’s health authorities controlled by the Houthi militia Sunday confirmed the arrival of a medical shipment dispatched by the UN Children‘s Fund (UNICEF) to help curb the spread of COVID-19 in the war-ravaged country.
“A UNICEF‘s plane loaded with essential medical supplies to respond to COVID-19 landed at Sanaa Airport on Saturday and our teams will supervise distribution to the hospitals,” one official of the Houthi-controlled Health Ministry in Sanaa told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
According to a brief statement released by the UN, “a UNICEF chartered plane landed at Sanaa airport on Saturday with lifesaving supplies to help curb the spread of the disease in the conflict-hit country.”
It said that the supplies are a range of medical assistance, including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) items such as aprons, boots, face masks and gloves for frontline health workers.
It added that the PPE items will help at least 1,600 health workers in primary health centres, hospitals and isolation units across Yemen to provide safe primary health care and nutrition services for a period of three months.
“These supplies will allow our courageous partners the health workers, who are working around the clock, to safely and more effectively address the spread of COVID-19,” said Sara Beysolow Nyanti, UNICEF Representative in Yemen.
The UN agency noted that the outbreak of COVID-19 has created an emergency within an emergency in Yemen where only half of health facilities are functional and with almost every child in Yemen (over 12 million in total) already in need of humanitarian assistance, including nearly half a million suffering from severe acute malnutrition.
Yemen’s Health Ministry on Saturday confirmed 27 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total tally of infections to 310 with 77 deaths in the country’s provinces controlled by the government.
The government called on donors and relevant international humanitarian organizations to provide support to help contain the pandemic.
Yemen has been mired in a civil war since late 2014, when the Iran-backed Houthi group seized control of much of the country’s north and forced the internationally-recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi out of Sanaa.
Iran condemns U.S. revoke of nuke-related sanctions waivers
Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Saturday condemned the recent U.S. decision to end the sanctions waivers under the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal.
The U.S. move to end the remaining sanctions waivers under the landmark deal is a “violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231” which endorses the deal, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi said.
Iran will take necessary legal measures in case the U.S. decision adversely affects Iran’s nuclear rights under the accord, internationally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), said Mousavi.
U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo announced earlier in a statement the end of sanctions waivers covering nuclear projects in Iran including the Arak reactor conversion following a final, 60-day wind-down period.
COVID-19: Federal Poly produces hand washing and sanitiding machines
The Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti, has produced machines for hand washing and sanitiser as part of its contribution to governments’ efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
Speaking at the inauguration of the hand-free and pedal-operated equipment on Saturday, the Rector, Dr. Dayo Oladebeye, commended the efforts of the Department of Mechanical Engineering on the initiative.
Oladebeye also applauded the functionality of the machine saying that, “it is efficient to use and it is smooth, without any friction.”
The rector said that aside the hand washing and sanitising machine products, the Polytechnic has other initiatives that will attract patronages from across the country.
“The Polytechnic is already making contacts to present the pedal-operated handwashing and sanitising machine to the Ekiti State Government.
”This is with a view to seeking their interest and support to produce more of the machines for use across Ekiti State and beyond,” he said.
The Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Abayomi Olorunishola, who demonstrated how the machine will be operated, said that the department came up with the idea of the machines to provide solution in managing the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Dean, School of Engineering, Dr. Emmanuel Adeosun, while presenting the three sets of the machine, said the beauty of the machines were that users needed not to touch them with their hands before applying soap, washing and sanitising.
Also, the Director, Olusegun Obasanjo Centre for Engineering Innovation at the Polytechnic, Dr. Israel Aluko, said the idea of fabricating the machines was with the intention of securing orders for mass production.
Aluko said this while presenting similar, but different designs of a pedal operated hand washing and sanitising machine for the Rector’s inspection at the Centre.
According to him, order for mass production of the machines will make them available in large quantities for sale in the state and round the Federation.
Aluko said that nobody knew when the Pandemic would end, adding that the processes of washing and sanitizing their hands were still the best option in preventing people from contacting any virus,especially, COVID-19.
The inauguratiin was witnessed by the Principal Officers, Deans, Directors and Management staff of the Polytechnic.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Polytechnic’s Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Olusegun Obasanjo Centre for Engineering Innovation, fabricated the two different types of Pedal-Operated Hand washing and sanitizing machines.
It reports that the fabrication of the machines followed an earlier production of face masks, liquid detergent and hand sanitizer by the Centre for Entrepreneurship Development and the School of Science and Computer Studies of the Institution.
