SO MUCH FOR TORCH BEARERS OF TRUTH AND JUSTICE: A TWIST IN THE ARM

SO MUCH FOR TORCH BEARERS OF TRUTH AND JUSTICE: A TWIST IN THE ARM

It is worrisome that lawyers who are supposed to be frontliners in upholding freedom of choice and association, are the same persons encouraging the cuffing of themselves by themselves.

The existence of branches in any organisation is ordinarily to ease administrative bottlenecks and not to promote partisan politicking. Such arbitrary affront on our right of membership to platforms of the NBA Ikeja platform(s); resolving to threaten comrade lawyers over an election of new executives for its national body.

This place is not just to promote affairs of the NBA Ikeja branch, but also the affairs of the national and parent body. It is a national election and we are allowed as lawyers belonging PRIMARILY to the national body to campaign for whosoever in our bias is deemed fit for the offices being contested, both on platforms of branches and the national platform, if any.

Dele Adesina, SAN and Charles Ajiboye, FICMC cannot be foisted upon us, nor can we be “RIGHTFULLY AND JUSTLY” proscribed from displaying support for candidates of our choice. If I must be honest, this sickening attempt endorsed by the Caretaker Committee does nothing else than to cause Dele Adesina, SAN and Charles Ajiboye, FICMC to lose votes.

Mr. Ubani Monday Onyekachi, let you and your comrades prepare to go global for voluntarily attempting to sabotage the coming NBA national elections, by choosing to force or attempt to force the hands of members of NBA Ikeja to voting your adopted candidates, through your SEIZE and DESIST Order banning the publication of Presidential and National Assistant Publicity Secretary aspirants, who are not Dele Adesina, SAN and Charles Ajiboye, FICMC. The sole reason being that the other contenders are not subscribed to Ikeja branch of the parent body NBA.

We make a helluva noise over the tyranny of Muhammadu Buhari, especially over the wanton disrespect of and for the Judiciary, yet the same Cat is in our Court, and instead of carefully tendering it, being our supposed forté, we are very free willingly growing it into a maddened tiger.
Why them nor go loose guard judiciary when we sef dey jonse wetin suppose dey just.

So much for torch bearers of TRUTH AND JUSTICE.
So much for the Bar dubbed “Excellent”. Apparently the import of excellence is not appreciated. In simple terms, to be excellent is to be of the “highest quality”. Can we say this branch to be of the highest quality if we are so brazenly encouraging corruption; yes, corruption, because this attempt is nothing short of a corruption of the import of Justice, justice for all.
