Celebrating An Uncommon Leader: Olumide Akpata Marks Another Year
Olumide Akpata is the Immediate past chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association’s Section on Business Law, and was Co-Chairman of the Technical Committee on Conference planning for 2019 NBA-AGC that was held in August at the Eko Hotels & Suites, and the Harbour Point in Lagos.
He made some landmark achievements while he was chairman of the Section on Business Law such as setting up the SBL Club in several Universities across Nigeria, including the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Baze University, Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria, etc.
Akpata also facilitated the NBA-SBL involvement with the National Assembly Business Environment Roundtable (NASSBER).
In 2018, Olumide Akpata donated an e-library to the NBA’s Benin Branch. The commissioning was an eloquent testimony to his commitment to continuing education for younger wigs in a bid to raise standards in the profession.
NEWSWIRE Magazine’s correspondent, who monitored the event, reported that the fully furnished e-library – complete with Internet access and 10 computers, as well as Law Pavilion e-Prime Software and Solicitor’s Toolkit, backed up by Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) – was commissioned by the Hon. Justice (Mrs.) Ikponwoba of the Edo State High Court in Benin.
It was an event that was destined to echo in the annals of the legal profession in Nigeria for a long time to come.
