September 19th – 25th
Week 3 started on a productive note for the Advocates of the Legal Aid Clinic of the University of Ilorin who paid a visit to the Magaji of the Tanke Bubu community. This visit was aimed at getting the Magaji’s support for the actualization of the project. He applauded the impressive project and the clinic’s equally incredible implementation plans, and pledged his and the community’s full support.
Also this week, the Advocates paid a courtesy visit to the Director of the National Human Rights Commission in the State. As they did the previous weeks, this was aimed at creating a relationship with key criminal justice stakeholders in the state, and fostering collaboration that will extend beyond the project.
The FUOYE Law Clinic started this week meeting with the CEO of Kings Events Ltd, who had donated materials (such as customized file jackets) for the inauguration and awareness symposium of the Common Dialoguing Forum (CDF). The FUOYE Advocates’ have been able to leverage collaboration with locals, ensuring that the project remains sustainable even long after its timeframe has elapsed.
Also this week, the Advocates in preparation of the awareness symposium to be held the next week visited key University officials to deliver invitations and give updates on the project.
On 23rd September, the Common Dialoguing Forum (CDF) was inaugurated.
At the end of the week, the Advocates held a weekly check-in meeting with the Mentors, who as always, had valuable feedback for both clinics, especially on ways to ensure that policing and security in their various communities outlives the project’s short timespan.
