Ex-NBA President Olumide Akpata celebrates 30 years of being called to bar
Former president of the Nigerian Bar Association, Olumide Akpata, has celebrated 30 years of being called to the bar.
The erudite scholar made time to celebrate the significant accomplishment.
He shared images of the early stages of his career as a lawyer. They included the photographs he and his father took on the day he was admitted to the bar, his certificate of admission, and a few of his favorite courtroom moments.
He thanked God for the experience so far and thank the people God had used to bring him to this point as a reputable lawyer.
Akpata earned his degree from the University of Benin in Edo State in 1992, and the following year he was admitted to the bar. Under the direction of Mudiaga Odje, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and one of the more seasoned litigators in the 1980s, he began his career in Delta State.
Later, he moved to Lagos where he joined his cousin, Oghogho Akpata, who had just founded the law company, Templars, and developed it to be one of the biggest in Nigeria by the age of 23.
