“The Forum extends its appreciation to Moruff O. Balogun,Esq. (the publicity sec. of the NBA Ijebu Ode branch) who took it upon himself to see to the safety of each and every member of YLF Ijebu Ode branch who attended the summit.
“And to all panelists who shared from their wealth of knowledge at the events,we say God bless you all.
“The summit has created a broader mind for the lawyers to think outside the usual litigation and corporate practice as the law evolves so it is the expectation that we as lawyers also evolve.
“Now, we know we are to aggressively seek for and grab knowledge rather than expect it to meet us in our comfort zones, and also take our destiny into our hands.
As the saying goes you can only take a horse to the river, twenty can not force it to drink from it.
We are most grateful for the legal insights,and we would strive excellently to make sure the purposes of the summit are realised in our various areas of practice.
Finally, we appreciate members of the Forum who took out time to attend and participate actively. The Forum wishes us best of luck in all our chosen careers.”
