News broke yesterday about an alleged discounted flight rate arrangement with Arik Air for Young Lawyers for the Annual General conference. We had advised Young Lawyers to be cautious of the said arrangement since there has not been official statement in this regards from the organizers of the conference.
It seems there has indeed not been any concrete agreement reached in this regard. Below is a caveat issued by the Publicity Secretary of the Young Lawyers Forum in this regard:
Attention of YLF Governing Council has been drawn to an information accredited to the Council Gen. Sec. announcing that, consensus has been reached between Arik and YLF National for the conveyance of Young Lawyers Conferees to and fro Lagos by the former at the rate of N38K.
Behold, the Governing Counsel hereby categorically disclaim such report for the time being, as conclusion over the deal is yet to be attained.
Hence, urging Colleagues to count on the Council over its determination to come out with a swift result for betterment of the Young Lawyers!
The Governing Council further assures to make it officially public of whatever stand reached.
Thank you for the understanding!!!
Zakariya M. Umar Esq.
(Pub. Sec. YLF National).
Note: Young Lawyers are enjoined to watch out for official statement on this issue and only act on the official advise of those in charge. Please be guided.
