Belgore Was A Quintessential Jurist – Shittu

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Wahab Shittu has described the later justice Ahmad o. Belgore: as a quintessential jurist. He said he was devastated when news filtered into town on the sudden passage of His Lordship, Justice Ahmad o. Belgore. According to him, the late Lordship was good in and outside the courtroom and was also intensely religious and caring.

He added that he was a real human being: compassionate, kind, fair minded, accessible and decent and had a kind word for everyone. The SAN in his tribute made available to New Telegraph yesterday, said the late jurist was a counsel in chambers.

Shittu said: “Our paths first crossed in the late 80’s when as a student of the Nigerian law school, l served my Chambers internship in the firm of the legendary late JB Majiyagbe SAN at club road in Kano.

“His lordship was a counsel in Chambers. He was a huge study in comportment, dignity and decency. “When later l decided to relocate to Kano to begin my private practice, His lordship was one of the senior counsel who offered guidance and support to me and many others.
