“When I pioneered the body in 2019, I together with my team visited some kwara legal luminaries spread across Nigeria, luminaries like Yusuf Ali, SAN, O. M Atoyebi, SAN, the youngest SAN in Nigeria. I remember we partnered with him then to help mentor some of our exceptional members through his Omaplex virtual internship program (OVIP).”
“Fast forward to 2023, we now have impressive numbers of our members who have been mentored by the youngest Nigeria’s SAN.” he added.”
