This morning, a colleague drew my attention to a news item by Adesina Adegbite complaining about an attempted disqualification of my brother silk, Dele Adesina, SAN and one Adeola Ademilola running for National and Branch offices respectively.
While I am flattered by the thought that I am capable of controlling the leadership of a Branch which I am not a member of, I state categorically that I do not have any hand to play in whatever is happening in the Ikeja Branch as well as any steps to disqualify any party.
At the end of the elections, whatever the result, we will all still be colleagues. I do not think that we should, on the basis of the election take steps to bring down each other.
I remain resolute in my drive for a Bar that works for us all.
Let’s do better.
