Kunle Edun

A group of seasoned legal practitioners (otherwise referred to as “Friends & Paddies”) from across the Trinity Bar (Warri, Effurun and Udu branches of the NBA) have given a roaring endorsement to the candidacy of Olukunle Edun for the office of Welfare Secretary of the NBA.

In a statement released today, the legal minds stated thus: “We have watched with keen interest the welfarist strides taken by Kunle Edun for some years now. Over the years, he has consistently shown that the welfare of society and members of the Bar is his paramount concern.

“We note that even before he became as a past vice chairman of NBA Warri branch, he was already renowned for his activism activities as a human right advocate. He has boldly taken action even when it is against the government of the day on several occasions in a bid to fight for the betterment of lawyers.

“His mantra over the years has always been ‘an injury to one lawyer is an injury to all’. He is cast more in the mold of the late Gani Fawehinmi.

“There is no gainsaying the fact that Mr. Kunle Edun is eminently qualified for the office of Welfare Secretary of the NBA.

“We therefore have no hesitation whatsoever in endorsing him.

“The statement was signed for and on behalf of ‘Friends & Paddies’ by Prince Sir Francis Yekovie, Esq. (Chairman)
James Oke, Esq. (secretary)”
