Wife of the Governor of Taraba State, Anna Darius Ishaku, has urged young female lawyers to be committed and dedicated to their professional duties.
Mrs Ishaku, a lawyer, gave the counselling during a mentorship programme organised by the Nigerian Bar Association Women Forum (NBAWF).
This was just as the NBAWF gave her an award of honour for her “meritorious services and support.”
The event, which was held at the conference hall of Hope Afresh Foundation, Jalingo, featured discussions on sexual harassment and career progression in legal profession, among other topics. The programme is designed to empower female lawyers to be successful in their professional career, the organisers said.
The governor’s wife stated that learning from seniors helps in improving performance and leads to mastery of the job.
