“Any young lawyer who wishes to succeed should look at the life of our principal, Mazi Afam Osigwe, SAN because he is a bridge between the Benchers and non-Benchers (because he is a life bencher also), between senior advocates and non-senior advocates, between the national officers and non-national officers, and between the old lawyers and young lawyers.

My first contact with him was in 2021 when he came for the Enbar Law Week. I was called by Chinaecherem Nwubani to go and pick him from the airport here in Enugu. My first interaction with him was about the welfare of young lawyers which he spoke so passionately about.

As we interacted, it became clear to me that the universal suffrage we enjoy today as young lawyers was an idea he packaged and sold to the then president, Augustine Alegeh, SAN when he was the general secretary of the Bar.

With what I know about Mazi Afam Osigwe, SAN, if he is elected the president of the Bar, he is going to run a proactive Bar where the interest of everybody will be carried along especially the young lawyers.

Our principal has consistently shown his love for young lawyers. And that I’m sure that anyone who knows him knows that he is so passionate about the young lawyers.”

An excerpt from the speech by JM Agu Esq. (Agu-the-Lion of Enbar) to Enbar young lawyers at their just concluded symposium in Enugu.
