“I want to specially congratulate and felicitate with the Okehi Branch of the NBA on the occasion of their law week which started on the 9th of December, 2021 and would end on the 10th of December, 2021.
The theme of the law week which is “ Attainment of Justice through the Rule Of Law.” is very simple and speaks for itself. This is because the essence of the rule of law is to ensure that justice is done at all time and in all circumstance.
The theme speaks for itself in the sense that, it encapsulates the whole essence and role of the legal profession and the focus and vision of the Nigerian Bar Association which is “ Promoting the Rule of Law”. A society can only survive if it seeks and indeed promotes the rule of law as against the rule of man.
As such I commend the leadership of the branch and the entire members for putting up this law week together for the benefit of members and in fact the society in general.
The theme is a clear reminder of our mandate as a profession and the urgent need to start ensuring that we all put our hands on desk to promote and ensure the entrenchment of the rule of law in our society.
I congratulate and wish all participants very fruitful and enriching discussions and a glamorous dinner to ahead,”
Dhikrullah Adewale Balogun (DAB)
Vice Chairman, NBA Ilorin.
