Good News: NBA Ado Ekiti Branch raises Law School Fees for an Indigent Student
We are very, very small, but we are profoundly capable of very, very big things – Stephen Hawking
It is another achievement level unlocked as Ado-Ekiti Branch of the NBA led by Samuel Olakanmi Falade (SOF) raised substantial help to support a law school applicant in his quest to wear the Wig and Gown.
Some weeks ago, Paul Jacob Amaobi who had graduated from Ekiti State University (EKSU) approached the Ado Branch of the NBA with a letter of financial assistance for his law school tuition. Paul was on the verge of missing a golden opportunity of seeing his lofty dreams of becoming a lawyer postponed but the large hearted members of the Ado Branch rose to the occasion.
The NBA Ado Ekiti Branch led by Samuel Olakanmi Falade (SOF) graciously acceded to the request of Paul and solicited the support of members of the branch to raise a substantial amount for the applicant.
With kind donations from senior and junior members of the branch, an amount in the region of N250,000.00 (Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira) was raised to support Paul Jacob Amaobi in his law school tuition. This is the first of it’s kind in the history of the Branch.
Paul is not only grateful but he is also overwhelmed by the unusual act of kindness by members of the Branch for achieving this great feat. Paul already feels eternally indebted to members of the Branch and the Branch but it is our belief that, the happiness and success of others is the ultimate success of all individuals.
On behalf of executive members, I appreciate all members, both senior members and colleagues for their generous donations and contributions towards achieving this landmark.
