UK To Sign Deal To Enable British Lawyers Practise In Nigeria

United Kingdom will today (Tuesday) sign a new deal with Nigeria to boost trade.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the UK’s department of Business and Trade, while disclosing this on Tuesday, said the trade deal will also foster investment and unlock new opportunities in various sectors.

The UK’s Business and Trade Secretary, Kemi Badenoch, and Minister for Trade and Investment in Nigeria, Doris Uzoka Anitie, will be signing the deal today.

According to the statement, the Enhanced Trade and Investment Partnership (ETIP) is the first the UK has signed with an African country, and is designed to grow the UK and Nigeria’s already thriving trading relationship, which totalled £7 billion in 2023.

This new deal is also expected to eliminate barriers in the legal services and film industry by allowing UK lawyers to practise international law in Nigeria, and foster collaboration between the film and media industry in both countries.

The statement read, “It will see Nigeria commit to working towards removing barriers preventing UK lawyers from practising international and foreign law in Nigeria, a step that could significantly increase UK legal services exports.

“It will also pave the way for further collaboration in the film and media industry and encourage world-leading UK education providers to offer high quality education in Nigeria.

“Nigeria is the biggest economy in Africa and one of the world’s fastest growing economies — predicted to be in the top 20 by GDP by 2035.

New Pressure For Arrest Of Islamic Cleric Who Placed Fatwa On Remi Tinubu – Lifestyle Nigeria

More pressure has emerged for the arrest of the Islamic cleric who issued a fatwa for the killing of First Lady, Remi Tinubu for being a Christian and an infidel.

In the latest development, the Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) has raised the alarm and called for urgent action against the Islamic preacher.

In a viral Update, the cleric condemned the Muslim/Muslim ticket of President Bola Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima, labeling it as a scam. Shockingly, he went further to declare that Mrs. Tinubu, as an “infidel,” should be put to death in accordance with the Quran, without providing any specific reference to support his claim.

Reacting to the cleric’s incendiary remarks and the fatwa on Remi Tinubu, YOWICAN in a communiqué following its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja at the weekend strongly condemned the cleric’s statements and called for swift action to address the situation before it escalates further.

Expressing concern over the potential impact on national security, YOWICAN emphasized the urgency of prosecuting the cleric and urged authorities to restrict him from preaching in Nigeria as a deterrent to others.

. reports that the call from the group follows earlier condemnations from several quarters including Senator Shehu Sani who rebuked the Islami Cleric over his call for the killing of the First Lady for being a Christian. Meanwhile, the security agencies have not reacted to the development.
