By: Ade Adeleke

Ondo State governor, Mr Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on Saturday appealed to lawyers across the country to always defend the sanctity of the temple of Justice and uphold the nobility of the law practice.

Governor Akeredolu gave the charge during the 12th Annual Reunion Dinner of the members of the University of Lagos Law Class of 1980 – 1983 held in Akure, the state capital.

The governor described members of the Law Class of 1980-1983 of UNILAG as accomplished men and women in diverse human endeavours particularly the law profession.

He charged them to regularly interface with current students of Law of their alma mater, so that their respective experiences about life would impact on the students’ attitude to excel through hardworking in knowledge acquisition.

According to the Governor, the much needed motivation for students to excel in their academic work can be gotten from past academic sets that have attained enviable heights in their professions.

He said current students would be greatly encouraged to work harder at being the best, if past sets can constantly interact with them.

In his address, the President of UNILAG Law Class of 180/83 often referred to as ‘Unique Flagship Law Class’, Hon. Justice Mobolaji Ojo said the set was so unique that wherever notable Nigerians gather contributing to the development of Nigeria, at least a member of the set would be present advancing outstanding thoughts.

The Chairman Local Organising Committee, Hon Justice Oluyemi Akitan-Osadebay, who is a citizen of Ondo State encouraged her colleagues to make time out and see lots of infrastructural projects that have been executed by the Oluwarotimi Akeredolu Administration across the state.

She particularly mentioned the road projects leading to the Federal High Court, Federal Court of Appeal and State High Court complexes with the construction of a befitting Car Park around the Federal Industrial Court complex in Akure.
