Recently, Perchstone & Graeys (P&G) held their 4th annual Walk4Justice. The event which happened on Saturday, 5th February 2022, serves as a precursor to the Run for Justice coming up on the 12th of February.
This peaceful display of solidarity is meant to contribute to the continued push for civil justice administrative reform championed by the founder of the firm Osaro Eghobamien, SAN and his distinguished colleagues.
Tolu Aderemi kicked off the walk by expressing his concern about the current state of the justice system. “Lawyers are the primary users of the courts, and therefore we bear the brunt of the inefficiency of our court system, and this cannot be left to government alone. The reform of the justice system in this country is a collective effort, and today we will mark this with our walk.
The SAN closed by offering some very challenging words; “Lawyers practising in this dislocated system cannot consider themselves successful. We all have a duty to contribute to repairing the system. Those who are non-lawyers are the consumers of this service and should also provide support as lawyers and judges cannot by themselves be able to evaluate and reform the system, we need the support of others. We have been doing this for four years, and it is making an impact. As a result of this initiative, I have met with the Vice-President, The Chief Justice, and the Attorney General of the Federation to discuss areas of collaboration so we can eventually have the outcomes we want.
