The Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association Section on Public Interest Development and Litigation has stated that the current President of the Association, Olumide Akpata is arguably the most courageous after his fearless predecessor, Late Also Aka-Bashorun.
“After Alao Bashorun’s presidency in NBA”,Ubani began, “there were innovative NBA Presidents like Olisa Agbakoba SAN, classy like Olanipekun SAN, the courageous ones like Rotimi Akeredolu SAN and J.B. Daudu SAN, gentle like Okey Wali SAN, A.B. Mahmoud SAN and Paul Usoro SAN, Transformative like Alegeh SAN but the best after Alao Aka-Bashorun, if you ask me, is Mr OLUMIDE AKPATA, the outgoing president.
“He will be exiting the presidency of NBA in grand style and blaze of glory. The Annual General Meeting of the Annual General Conference which is on the 25th of August, 2022 in Lagos remains a day of eulogizing his sterling and courageous leadership ever witnessed in the noble profession after Alao Aka Bashorun. In doing this, no accusation of eye service or hypocrisy can stand. Olu deserves encomiums meritoriously.That I know and can attest. Believe me, I AM PROUD TO KNOW HIM PERSONALLY.
Let us not lose hope in NBA and by extension in NIGERIA! We will get to OUR DESERVED DESTINATION ONE DAY! Keep faith. Dr Ubani added.
