The Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association, Zaria branch has offered his best wishes for the end of Ramadan fast celebrations, in his Eid Fitri message.
Mr. Yemi Adekunle said, “For one lunar month, our Muslim colleagues have abstained from food, drinks and other worldly affairs in worship of Allah SWT. Today, being the first day of Shawal and the Eid el fitr festival, I thank God for seeing us all through the month. Even our Christian brothers who have stayed with us while we observed this all important aspect of our religion deserve our commendation.
“May Allah SWT accept our acts of Ibadah. While we celebrate, I urge us to be moderate in everything. The criminals who perpetrate kidnapping are still very much around and may take advantage of the season. We must be extra vigilant and security conscious, the Chairman added.
War on Fake Legal Practice
” The case of impersonation by one Saidu B Abdullahi is still going on. It remained adjourned to 10/6/2019 for hearing. The Defendant was initially released on administrative bail but has now been returned to the prison as at yesterday. I am aware of moves by some of our colleagues to thwart our collective efforts in ridding this profession of quarks and fakes but we are resolute and with your support victory is assured.
“Mr Yunusa Umar Esq amongst others is particularly hard working in ensuring that the impostor is let off the hook. It is unfortunate more so that he is a staff of the office of the Attorney General of Kaduna State who should be working hand in hand with us and the Police to ensure a crime free Kaduna state.
” I however appreciate our members who have spoken out and showed positive support in this event as I urge us to remain calm. This case and others will not go under the carpet.” Mr Adekunle assured.
“I wish all NBA members happy celebration. Eid Mubarak.”
