IHRC Appoints Maisamari Legal Adviser
International Human Rights Commission (IHRC) on Saturday appointed a Kano-based legal practitioner, Sani Maiyaki Maisamari as its legal adviser in Kano state.
His appointment was signed by the IHRC coordinator/special envoy, Amadi Darligton C. for the IHRC-Nigerian committee.
Maisamari’s appointment was, according to the commission, due to his innumerable contributions to the building of the Nigerian nation, his trusted sense of judgment and his sincere stance on critical issues on the local, national and global context.
The commission said all the attributes it noticed in the lawyer are “in tandem with the lofty ideals of the IHRC.”
The lawyer told Judicial Sketch he received his appointment with relish, saying he would try to justify the confidence that the IHRC has in him.
Miasamari obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Law from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) and is currently pursuing his Masters Degree in ICT Law.
He was the head of ABU legal clinic in 2014 and 2015; president legal aid CDS group from 2017 t0 2018; secretary of the Prestige Legal Clinic and an associate at the law firm of Prestige Solicitors and Associates.
The principal of his law firm, Ma’ruf Muhammad Yakasai told Judicial Sketch he has no doubt Maisamari earned the confidence the IHRC has in him and would not fail in his duties.
Some of his colleagues in the legal profession have said he possesses the capabilities to handle the job, observing that hard-work, devotion and good human relations form part of the tools that would see him through.
Part of his duties is to accelerate the activities of the International Human Rights Commission in Kano state, and the commission has made it clear that failure to meet this requirement may lead to the cancellation of the appointment.
Maisamari insisted that he plans to succeed.
