Facebook just reminded me that today makes it a year since I served the Nigerian Bar Association and the LAWYERS IN NIGERIA as National Assistant Publicity Secretary (2018 – 2020). It was a real honour.

Since I left office, I have been met with so much goodwill from many lawyers for which I am so grateful. But two occassions stood out.

First was at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, few months after my term. I was looking to get a date for one of my pending appeals before the court. I hadn’t wandered long when a young court staff beckoned on me. He called my name. I was at loss, because I had never met him before. He is a lawyer. He said “Habeeb, you served us very well and whatever you need in this court, as long as I can, I will ensure you get it.” I got the date.

Another was a call from a secondary school mate. He is a medical doctor in Zaria. He needed the service of a lawyer. He found one and while discussing with the counsel, he dropped my name. The lawyer is the immediate past chairman of Zaria Branch. And my lucky school mate got a pro bono service. He called excitingly to inform me and I in turn called the former chairman who said I had paid ahead for my friend in the course of my service as National Assistant Publicity Secretary.

Thanks so much for the privilege, colleagues.
