I met AA when he joined the Ikeja Bar, almost two decades ago. I took to him because of some attributes I observed in him which included humility, open mindedness, frankness and tenacity of purpose.
After my election as Chairman of the Branch in 2008, and the position of Assistant Secretary was vacant, I informed him that I wanted to co-opt him for the position. Surprisingly, he did not jump at it, he pleaded with me to give him time to think it over, he later accepted to serve in that capacity. I never regretted my choice as he was always there for me and gave exceptional support to the then Secretary.
He gave his all, he was loyal and committed! We attended all NEC meetings together. At 2009 Sokoto NEC meeting, our driver needed rest and we needed to attend a programme, AA drove our Toyota coaster bus successfully to and fro the venue, in other words, he is a solution provider! Another thing that stands him out is his integrity, I have many instances of such display which I will not be able to state here, but I can boldly say that he has a lot of integrity and that he is what the bar requires at this critical point of our development. Where others see problems,AA sees opportunity! AA is mobile! He has served in various positions at the branch and national levels and he performed beautifully well.
Those are the things that endeared him to me. I’m with AA, please join me! I commend him to everyone that desire a Secretary with gravitas!
I am Dave Ajetomobi Esq, Past Chairman NBA Ikeja Branch 2008-2010. NEC member 2004 to 2006, 2008 to 2013, 2014 to 2016.
