A group of young lawyers under the aegis of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (LXG) has donated a 3.2kva Sumec Firman generator to the Cross River State High Court No. 8 in Calabar.

The court is located along Moore road and has been without power for years with the lawyers and judge often visibly sweating during courts sessions.

And, the LXG led by Mr. Eno Iyamba who also donated the sum of NGN10,000 for the initial fuelling of the generator pointed out that; “This assistance was borne out of a desire to resurrect the courts in Cross River State from their present dilapidated condition.”

He acknowledged the support of Barrister Fred Onuobia, whom he said had expressed his concern and intention to make the court premises a more conducive environment for legal practitioners.

The judge, Justice Ukpai Ibitham in his response commended the LXG pointing out that: “This had created a very uncomfortable environment for His Lordship and lawyers alike.”

Lawyers in attendance included Barristers Emmanuel Idaka; James Ibor; Gregory Okem; Eneji Amajama and Chris Ebuogwu, among others.

And, Mr. Idaka whilst appreciating the gesture, stated that this is an encouragement to young and senior lawyers alike to take up more responsibility in ensuring that the courts are in a habitable condition.

He promised to ensure that the generator is fueled whilst assuring that a gathering of like minds would see to it that this gesture is replicated across all courts in the state.
