Zaria — Alhaji Bashir gave the advice in an interview with journalists shortly after the opening ceremony of the 14th Annual Judges Conference organised by the Centre for Islamic and Legal Studies (CILS), Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
Christened 'The Scope of the Application of Islamic Law in Civil Matters in Nigerian Courts', the conference brought together judges from different parts of the country.
The ex-Khadi said it is time for Muslims in other parts of Nigeria to have access to Sharia Courts just like their counterparts in the north.
He, however, reminded Sharia Court Judges that Allah would judge all their actions, hence the need for them to be just and fair to all. He enjoined the Judges to be guided by the principle of fear of God while discharging their duties.
In his speech, the Director of CILS, Professor Ibrahim Ahmad Aliyu, said the objective of the conference was to serve as a mean of promoting legal research, continuing legal and judicial education, mutual interaction and sharing experience among judges.
