Akinlade charges new SANs to promote integrity, sincerity
Ex-chairman of Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Ikorodu branch, Lagos, Bayo Akinlade has charged the newly appointed Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SAN) and older ones to act with integrity and sincerity in their new status.
Akinlade in a statement added that a lot could be achieved through the new rank. His words: “You can inspire the next generation of lawyers, you can change the direction of the judiciary to one that stands for the common man, you can influence the movement from analogue to digital courts, you can make the NBA a truly viable association, you can positively impact all Ministry of Justices and attract better salaries for all lawyers working in the public sector, you can change the narrative of young lawyers working in private law firms, you can steer government (federal and states) in the right path, you can influence our lawmakers, guide and advise them to make laws that create wealth and security…you can do so much and you should.”
He congratulated and commended the new SANs to be deserving of the honour, not just in qualifying intellectually for it, but to add value to the profession by doing all they can to live by example.
“I am happy to be at your service if you need support for any initiative you may want to carry out or if you want to support others,” he pledged.
