According to them, his elevation to the rank was discovered to have been done in error. "The list of Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs) appointees released on Thursday, October 21 contained an error. A name on the list was not properly identified. The actual appointee is Osaka, Benjamin Nwora esq, but he was wrongly identified as Nworka Chidi Benjamin esq, and listed as number 43 on the list," they said.
The Supreme Court however disclosed that, it has come up with a revised list in which the appointees are now listed in order of seniority, with Osaka Benjamin Nwora now listed as number 21.
This was disclosed in a statement by the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee (LPPC) Secretary and acting Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court, Hajia Hajjo Sarki Bello.
Part of the statement reads: “In the press release, issued by this office yesterday, 21st October 2021, announcing the list of successful applicants for the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Nworka, Chidi Benjamin, Esq, listed as No 43 was mistakenly included in the list of advocate appointees. The actual successful applicant that ought to be in the said list is Osaka, Benjamin Nwora, Esq. The mix-up is highly regretted and we apologise to all persons affected by it."
