It has come to my notice that there is an article written by one Mr. Olasupo Ojo of the NBA Ikeja branch dated the 4th day of August, 2022, where he claims that I, Mrs. Mercy Ijato Agada, the National Treasurer of the NBA, purportedly exposed a plan to hijack and destroy the legal profession in Nigeria, to stoke “rebellion among the Body of BENCHER” and to employ the NBA in “scattering the table”. In the said publication, the said Olasupo Ojo further alleges that in this publication, I threatened that “NBA AGC will witness daily protest”.

    The entire publication by Mr. Ojo would have been totally ignored but for the fact that it is imperative that I set the record straight!

    1. I am not aware of, neither am I part of any plan to hijack and destroy the legal profession in Nigeria, to stoke “rebellion among the Body of BENCHERS” or to employ the NBA in “scattering the table”, (whatever that means)!

    2.) I never issued any such statement attributed to me and one wonders why a senior member of the Bar whom I have never met or remember ever speaking to, will condescend to issuing blatant falsehood against my person!

    1. If Mr. Olasupo Ojo had only bothered to get his facts right, he would have realised that the statement he has attributed to me is not mine but part of a publication of the online blog ” Kubwa Express” published on the 27th of July, 2022 with the title: ” GROUP CALLS ON OLANIPEKUN SAN TO EMULATE THE CJN AND RESIGN IMMEDIATELY AS CHAIRMAN, BODY OF BENCHERS”.
