The Nigerian Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, recalled the old memories on how he earned N620 as a Senior lecturer in 1981 at University Of Lagos.

Osinbajo disclosed this at the 53rd Annual Conference of the Association of Nigerian Law Teachers on Tuesday in Kano.

H said, although the money was more than enough for him at the time, it clearly shows how life speedily changed for Nigerians.

He said, “I started teaching at the University of Lagos in 1981, as lecturer II, my salary at that time was N620, this clearly shows that the place of law teachers is crucial and important to the lives of the nation”.

“We, law teachers, are custodians and creators of the underline concepts and fundamental premises of legal framework.

“And because we are the thinkers for the system of law and justice and our profession.

Our conference has always been a forum for the free and yet deep interrogation of fundamental ideas and principles that hold society together.

“Questions like the trajectory of law, law and order, democratic practice and their current interpretations and current efficacy should be asked”.

He said the theme of this year’s conference, “Law, democracy and electoral processes” is appropriate as the national elections were coming in less than a year.

Osinbajo further said that democracy was under severe attack in Africa.
