Born into the illustrious Bashua chieftaincy family of Lagos, Alhaji Bashua redefined himself not by the family fortunes, but through hard work and commitment which saw him called to the English Bar the same year Nigeria got her independence. He branched out to be elected into the Federal House of Representatives for the Lagos Constituency from 1962 to 1964. He returned to his Firm after serving the Country as a Public Servant to build a rebuttable Firm – M.A. Bashua & Co.
Through dint of hard work, Alhaji Bashua attained the enviable status of a Learned Silk and etched himself into our Jurisprudence through remarkable advocacy. Mohammed V. Olawuni remains a locus classicus on the principle of when to seek the leave of Court to Appeal the decision of a Lower Court. He was bestowed with the National Honor of Commander of the Order of the Niger (CON) by the Federal Government of Nigeria in the year 2008.
