“The bar is saddened by the current state of affairs on the lingering crisis between the Executive and Judicial arms of government in the state. The bar is very worried with the level at which the current disagreement has degenerated to.

“The Judiciary as the last hope of the common man and the only institution that restores the confidence of the populace on government activities even under military regime, hence its operations must not be unduly interfered with and be allowed in accordance with the law” the communique stated.
