A senior advocate of Nigeria, SAN, and human rights activist, Mr. Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa has technically endorsed all the three candidates contesting the NBA presidential election slated for the next 72 hours through electronic voting.
In a letter he wrote to the voting public of lawyers through the social media, he praised the sterling qualities of each one of them and concluded that anyone can lead the Bar if given the opportunity at the election.
Here is his submission in the letter to his colleagues in the inner and outer bar.
“Dear learned colleagues,
“As we approach the final lap of the 2020 elections of the Nigerian Bar Association, I wish to make the following statements.
In alphabetical order with no specific preference,
ADESINA DELE, SAN:
He has SERVED the legal profession MERITORIOUSLY, as Chairman of NBA, Ikeja Branch and as General Secretary, NBA, at the national office.
AJIBADE BABATUNDE, SAN:
He has SERVED the legal profession CREDITABLY, in seeking fundamental reforms in justice administration, through The Justice Reform Project and also in helping to raise leaders for the Bar, through the Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee.
He has SERVED the legal profession SELFLESSLY, through the Section on Business Law and also in various other capacities, through the Conference Planning Committees.
They all have many more positive attributes, which I may not have stated. Any of these three, is qualified to lead the Bar, if voted as President of the NBA, in any free, fair, peaceful and credible contest.
I therefore urge you to VOTE for ANY of these three candidates, purely in the fear of God and according to your conscience.
God bless the Nigerian Bar Association God bless Nigeria”.
Be a blessing to someone today and stay safe. Observe all NCDC protocols for a healthy living.
