Following the review of the report sent in by the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, the Nigerian National Assembly has passed a bill seeking to establish six additional Law School campuses in the country. The committee was chaired by Senator Opeyemi Bamidele (APC, Ekiti).
The new campuses will be spread across the nation’s six geopolitical zones. The new addition will take the country’s total campus to twelve (12) when they’re finally functional. The existing law school campuses are currently in Abuja (North Central), Yola (North East), Lagos (South West), Kano (North West), Yenegoa (South-South) and Enugu (South East).
According to reports, the additional campuses that were approved by the National Assembly include Kabba Law School Campus, Kogi (North Central); Maiduguri Law School Campus, Borno (North East); Argungu Law School Campus, Kebbi (North West); Okija Law School Campus, Anambra (South East); Orogun Law School Campus, Delta (South-South); and Ilawe Law School Campus, Ekiti (South West).
