Olayiwola Afolabi Esq’s Tribute to Douglas Ogbankwa Esq as he bows out gracefully as Publicity Secretary of the NBA Benin Branch.
By :Olayiwola Afolabi Esq.
I remembered vividly I was one of those that opposed your consensus candidate then because the post of PRO of the NBA Benin Branch then ,was not in contention you being the only single candidate. But , when you took over as the PRO of the Body, you brought real life into it and the Exco. and the entire Benin bar should be grateful to you for the revolutionary way you have transformed the office of the PRO., from what it used to be as lawyers can get first hand detailed information of their cases from the Court of Appeal to the Federal High Court ,even when I travel outside Benin city to Ekiti State , which is my State ,I still vividly recall when we had a judgment , at the Supreme Court last year December ,even before the judgment was delivered in our favour ,you were able to get the names and phone numbers of the Registrars attached to various Panels of the Court and you made them available and we can not forget your various enriching articles.You need to educate any body contesting for the post of PRO.,both in the NBA and in the political clime.
-From the reading table of “Otunba”of the Benin Bar ,who is relaxing with fresh esan goat with big Benue yam in Markurdi at the moment .
