The Board, Management and Staff of the Nigerian Shippers’ Council has expressed sadness at the sudden death of the former Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Hon. Justice Abdul Kafarati.
In a statement signed by Executive Secretary of the Council, Barr Hassan Bello on Wednesday, the agency commended the role played by the late Justice in the Maritime Seminar for Judges, a brainchild of the Council.
“During his time as the Chairman of the International Maritime Seminar for Judges Organizing Committee, a flagship programme of the Council, Late Justice Kafarati, brought energy, enthusiasm and dynamism to the Seminar series for which Nigerian Shippers’ Council remains indebted to him”
“Many people would miss the late Justice Kafarati for his erudite Judicial scholarship, and we at the Nigerian Shippers’ Council will particularly miss his wise counsel, depth of humility and vast network of Judicial connection which greatly lessened our burdened, and broaden the impact of the seminar”
“I wish to condole and commiserate with his family, friends, the Judiciary and the country for this loss” Bello stated
