The decision by the apex regulator of the legal profession in Nigeria was taken at its meeting held today.
There has been a cat-and-mouse tussle between the Benchers and the NOUN graduates, as the body had insisted that NOUN graduates did not meet the requirements for admission to the Law School.
Before now, all pleas to the Body of Benchers to resolve the impasse met a brickwall until today’s breakthrough.
More details shortly.
