CHAIRMAN SALUTES CHIEF R. O. BALOGUN AND DR. MOBOLAJI OJIBARA
As the NBA elections draw closer, a lot have been said and done.
For us in NBA Ilorin, it is a story of fulfilment that our past chairmen, Chief Balogun(Baloo) and Dr. Ojibara(MIO) are not just aspiring for the Office of the General Secretary, but are leading contestants of the revered office.
The present leadership of the NBA Ilorin fully supports the aspirations of these two Noble personalities for the coveted office of General Secretary, and this explains why the leadership of the NBA ILORIN has not endorsed any of these respected members of our Branch.
We are proud to be associated with both Dr. Ojibara and Chief Balogun because of their contributions to the Ilorin Bar.
The leadership of the Ilorin Bar has always given a level playing field to the two contestants devoid of any partisan inclination. We urge our esteemed members to continue to pray and support the aspirations of our members.
