#1Tight Security
There was presence of security officials but not as much as that of Day 4. Though the Vice President was around, security was relaxed around the venue. Thorough searches were conducted for dangerous weapons and people without tags turned away except they have any evidence to identify themselves as delegates such as tellers or receipts of payments. Handwritten name tags were also used.

DAY 4 NBA AGC 2015; MONDAY 24TH AUGUST, 2015

IMG_20150824_093152My sister-in-law dropped me off at the ICC some minutes to 9 am on the 4th day of the conference. Security was still very tight with a combination of DSS, Mobile Police Officers, Soldiers and officers of the Civil Defence Corp manning the gates.

The security officers were however more friendly as they threw a cheerful hello to anyone who looked in their direction. As usual, bags were searched while delegates passed through metal detectors for bombs and other dangerous weapons.

#1 Presidential Movement

Security at the ICC was so tight. A combination of DSS, Police, Army and Civil Defence Officers manned all areas surrounding the vicinity of the ICC. The arrival of State House Security Operatives tightened the security leash. I was denied entry at first. “We cannot afford a security breach” the State House Security Operative told me. The connecting gate from the ICC to NICON was sealed and thus we had to do almost a 60 degrees walk to NICON. However, the security operatives were very civil. Despite that, fear no gree me take pictures of them oh.

THE 2015 NBA ANNUAL GENERAL CONFERENCE (AGC) COMMENCES!

Yea! You heard right!

“The annual ritual of legal gentlemen and judicial brethren conglomerating for academic, legal and socio-cum political tete- a-tete on the legal, political and social quagmires obfuscating legal practice, asphyxiating legal practitioners and militating against societal equilibrium viz a vis the temporal and permanent change romancing the political system which is audible to the deaf and visible to the blind like the Biblical Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin, has descended on …”

Law students; Internships could broaden legal learning Photocredit facebook.com/rotimi.m.kodaolu

The long holidays are here again! It’s another long period off academics and school work. What are you gonna do with it? Hustle for extra cash to buy new clothes and phones to wow your mates in school after resumption? Hmmm! Well those from the not so wealthy home also hustle for extra cash to keep body and soul together and buy their books. So it’s understandable!

However, you can do something else. Internship! Yea you heard right! There is a whole world of difference between what you are taught in school and what obtains in real life in legal practice. The only way you can see the practical application of what you are taught is by interning in a law office or law chambers!Continue reading

NAIJA POLICE; A LAWYER’S FRIEND OR FIEND!

“There should be no relationship between a Science Student and an Arts Student, the only thing that holds you together is just two subjects, English Language and Mathematics. You should not associate with them or have anything to do with them. Don’t ever go to their class …”

The above statement is credited to my Chemistry Teacher in secondary School. My Chemistry Teacher, let us call him Uncle P (we called our teachers uncles and aunties), was a young man pushed into the very difficult task of teaching by the country’s number one killer of dreams; unemployment (teaching is not an easy task for those who it’s not their passion).

I had carefully crossed the four lane Oshodi/Apapa Expressway after I alighted from a Mile 2 bound Danfo bus. I was fagged out from the days job but not too tired to notice a large crowd of  people watching a fight between a Danfo Driver and an Agbero. I quickly took a good place amongst the spectators. In today’s world where people paid as high as a $100, 000. 00 to watch a Mayweather v. Pacquiao bout, who would reject a more exciting offer to watch a street fight for free.
