MULAN to design 20 year Roadmap for Muslim lawyers -Prof Ibrahim


By Ahmed Abubakar, Dutse

The National President of the Muslim Lawyers Association of Nigeria (MULAN), Professor Abdulqadir Abikan Ibrahim, has said that the association is currently planning a 20 year roadmap for Muslim lawyers across the country.

The MULAN president stated this during a courtesy visit to the Attorney-General/Commissioner for Justice of Jigawa State, Dr. Musa Adamu Aliyu in his office.

The President stated that part of his administration commitments was to revive synergy with all the state chapters, saying there was little or no alliance between the state chapters and the National body. 

According to Ibrahim “my office has recently organized a retreat for stakeholders, to design a roadmap for MULAN for the next 20 years.

He added that, the retreat was also aimed to build the capacity of Muslim Lawyers especially in the area of Sharia Law, which will help them to diversify their legal practice and to improve their faith. 

He therefore urged all Muslim legal practitioners to participate in such kind of workshops and retreats.” 

“MULAN is always concern with issues affecting Muslims, this is why the association involved in the case of a lady who was denied call to the Nigerian Bar over the wearing of hijab. In another incident when the Governor of Kaduna State’s invitation to attend the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) Annual General Conference was withdrawn, the Association wrote a condemnation letter to the national body of NBA, and that has impacted on the decision of the Lawyers’ umbrella body”. 

Ibrahim commended the Jigawa state Governor Alhaji Muhammadu Badaru Abubakar on his achievements in the state.

The Commissioner also called on the national leadership to support the State Government in bringing development to administration of justice.
