Friends of Dele Adesina SAN Respond to the Malicious Online Publication

Our attention has been drawn to an online publication titled "RAMINBA CONDEMNS VOTE BUYING BY DELE ADESINA SAN".

Again, we are extremely disappointed by this action of our "professional" colleagues spreading falsehood and blatant lies all in the hope of diminishing the candidature of our Dele Adesina SAN.

Suffice to say that our candidate as a core Democrat IS NOT AND WILL NEVER be involved in any vote buying or any act that would diminish  the democratic process.

The said text message did not emanate from Dele Adesina SAN, who is yet to set up his campaign committee or his Team of Friends, as we will not even address our  Deacon Dele *Adesina* SAN as Deacon Dele *Adeshina* SAN. We know how to spell his name. We believe that this is even a pointer to the actual originators of this mischief. Be that as it may, we shall investigate the origin of the said false and malicious sms and take appropriate action(s) thereon.

That said, we urge everyone to disregard the alleged publication which emanated from the annals of elements who from the outset had declared Dele Adesina SAN as an enemy. Their sole driving purpose is to cast aspersions on the reputation and candidature of our reverred Deacon Dele Adesina SAN, who has devoted and dedicated his life to the bettermemt of law practice and the NBA in particular. We are certain that their evil machinations shall not only fail, but they shall be exposed in due course.

Dele Adesina SAN Quotes: Practice Tip for Young Lawyers

Quote from Dele Adesina SAN interview on DNL Legal & Style, Dec 11, 2019

"What is important in all these is the need for one to have a clear vision of what he wants to be in life and then how you want to get there. When it gets to living a purpose driven life, there should be no game of chance.

That is what I say to my junior members of the Bar like a song, either during our Friday meetings in the office or anytime I have the opportunity to speak at any young Lawyers' forum. Most of the times, I used to tell them my personal story because I believe that "the secret of men is in their stories."

The idea is not to blow any body's trumpet. No. The idea is to let them know that if people like us can succeed with commitment and determination to the course that we believe in, you too can succeed even much faster than we did if you take the same step of single minded pursuit of your identified vision with all passion believing that your life depends on it."

Very significantly, he had a robust interactive session with the very popular Group, the Integrity Group, a powerful and highly popular caucus within the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Port-Harcourt Branch. He commended the initiative behind the formation of the Group and its goals about advancing the ideal and ethical values of the Profession. He also recommended the initiative to other Branches of the Nigerian Bar Association.

Dele Adesina SAN Storms Port-Harcourt in Style

As part of his ongoing consultation exercise, Deacon Dele Adesina SAN is presently in Port-Harcourt to meet and greet members of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Port-Harcourt Branch in particular and the entire Rivers State Branches of the NBA in general.

On arrival, he addressed a group of both young and senior lawyers moderated by Granville Abibo SAN, a long-time ally of Deacon Dele Adesina SAN. In attendance at the meeting, were both past and serving Branch Chairmen and Secretaries of various Branches of the NBA in Rivers State.

In the course of the interactive session, Deacon Dele Adesina SAN spoke about the need to reposition the Bar for the benefit of all Nigerian lawyers, particularly the teeming young lawyers. 

He assured the audience that his greatest drive in showing interest in the leadership of the Association at this point in time is solely to serve the Association and the Profession. 

Stressing that, success without successor is a failure, Deacon Dele Adesina SAN emphasised the need to secure the future of the Legal Profession in Nigeria, expand the scope of practice for the teeming young lawyers of the Bar in order to guarantee their success in the Profession and to address the problem of encroachment into the Profession by non-lawyers and organisations.

The consultation continues tomorrow.

BAYELSA, Nasarawa, Rivers: When Our Justice System no Longer Serves Utilitarian Purposes, There is Imminent Collapse – Richarmond O. Natha-Alade

Events of recent have shown several seismic and qua-tsunami decisions of our courts on several matters of national importance, the apex court inclusive; particularly on teething issues touching on various elections across Nigeria. This is evidenced by sudden twists in order events and natural protocols occasioning controversies and majour division on opinions cum reactions hovering from those decisions. Part of such is evidenced by massive protests across-board and massive filing for review of those decisions.
