One of our most cherished values as Africans is our respecting our elders and paying homage to them. That tradition is alive and well in the Lagos Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) as delegates to the 2021 Law Week of the nation’s Premier Branch took out time to dine, wine, dance and socialize at the Elders’ Night, held on the grounds of the majestic Federal Palace Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Introducing the event, Chukwuka Ikwuazom, SAN, the immediate past Chairman of the Lagos Bar Branch, recalled that this fine tradition began during the tenure of one of his predecessors, Alex Muoka, and has since grown to become an important annual ritual which brings together the profession’s elder statesmen for an evening of camaraderie and solidarity.

Also speaking, the current Chair of the branch, Yemi Akangbe echoed Ikwuazom’s remarks, lamenting the interruption of 2020, when concerns over the spread of the dreaded coronavirus disease forced the branch to cancel last year’s edition. He thanked the host of this year’s edition, Mr. Gbenga Oyebode, MFR, and his law firm, Aluko & Oyebode, for graciously sponsoring the 2021 event.
Oyebode’s welcoming remarks, thanking the everyone – particularly the sprinkling of Bar Elders who showed up at this year’s event – for coming, got the lively but low-key event underway.
