The Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem has promised to support the newly elected executives of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Ikeja Branch led by its Chairman, Mr. Dele Oloke.

The AG made the pledge when the executives paid him a courtesy visit at The Secretariat, Ikeja, last week.

The delegation includes branch elders such as Mr Dele Adeshina (SAN), Mr Femi Falana (SAN), Mr Roland Otaru (SAN) and Mr Layi Babatunde (SAN) and Mr Monday Ubani.


Oloke in his remarks pledged their preparedness to partner and engage the state government with a view to ensuring that social justice for all is realised.

His words: “We are ready to always partner and engage the government on all issues of concern rather than fight government.”

According to him, the NBA is a pressure group that should be seen as partners in progress to assist government in ensuring justice for all.

He congratulated the Attorney General on his recent elevation to the position of Senior Advocate of Nigeria and called for more assistance from the government in providing a suitable platform for lawyers in private practice to profitably practice their profession.
