Good things always find good people. The National Judicial Council, NJC, recommended the appointment of some persons as judicial officers to various state Governors for appointment.
This was after a very thorough selection process. One is right to therefore say that only the best could have scaled through the rigorous process. It is in this process that Alh. Adam Salihu Yerima, Esq. now His Lordship, Khadi A. S. Yerima secured the approval of NJC for appointment as a Khadi of Katsina State Sharia Court of Appeal.
Khadi A. S. Yerima is a young, vibrant, hardworking person. He is responsible and God fearing. Until his appointment, he was an active and financial bar man per excellence. He was the founder of Babban Zahrah Chambers which is well known for rendering legal assistance to many less privileged at no cost. His knowledge of Islamic law and Arabic language is wonderful.
An indigene of Katsina state, he had made a huge mark in legal practice in Zaria branch of Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, having handled many cases at various courts all over Nigeria and up to Supreme Court of Nigeria.
I, on behalf of myself, the Executive Committee and all members of NBA Zaria Branch congratulate His Lordship, Khadi A. S. Yerima on his well deserved appointment as a Khadi of Katsina State Sharia Court of Appeal. Your appointment will no doubt enrich the judicial lexicon of Katsina State and Nigeria as a whole.
We pray that Allah will guide you and grant you the wisdom to discharge the burden of dispensing Justice among all persons who may come before your court. Congratulations sir.
Yemi S. Adekunle, Esq.
Chairman, NBA Zaria Branch
