The Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Hon Justice John Tsoho, is scheduled to commission the public conveniences of the Federal High Court, in the Lagos Division, newly renovated for public use.
Human rights activist, Mr Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, SAN had voluntarily taken up the project of renovating the three public toilets in the court, for the use of lawyers and litigants alike.
Mr Adegboruwa said this project was executed in fulfillment of the pledge that he made to God when applying for elevation into the Inner Bar.
Specifically, three major toilets were renovated as follows:
Toilet at the Car Park
This is a public convenience comprising two toilets for men, two urinary bowls and hand wash, three toilets for women, hand wash and changing area.
Part of the roof of the building was also renovated and some doors were changed.
Main Toilet Inside the Court
This is a public convenience comprising two toilets, two urinary bowls and hand wash for men and three toilets and hand wash for women. The doors to the toilets were refurbished and fixed.
Special Toilet for Senior Lawyers and Physically Challenged Persons
This toilet was totally overhauled with one toilet, hand wash and urinary bowl for men and one toilet and wash hand for women.
Enough room has been created in this toilet, to allow lawyers freshen up in the outer rooms newly created, because of its proximity to the court.
Toilet of the Security men
The single toilet of the security men at the main gate of the court was also renovated and changed.
Mr Adegboruwa had written to the court to seek permission to renovate these toilets as part of his efforts to give back to the judiciary where he operates.
The Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court will commission these toilets at 12pm, in company of other judges and the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, chairmen of Nigerian Bar Association, Lagos and Ikeja Branches and other dignitaries.
