Former Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Lagos Branch, Chukwuka Ikwuazom, SAN, has expressed profound grief over the death of Ondo State Governor Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu SAN, describing him as a “brilliant legal mind and dedicated public servant.”

In a condolence message today, Ikwuazom noted that the late Akeredolu contributed enormously to uplifting the legal profession in Nigeria and advancing the Bar Association during his distinguished career.

He served meritoriously as Secretary of the NBA Ibadan Branch from 1985-1986 before being elected Chairman from 1992-1993, Ikwuazom recalled.

Akeredolu’s public service within the bar reached its pinnacle when he was elected President of the NBA from 2008-2010, during which the groundbreaking ceremony for the NBA National Secretariat in Abuja (NBA House) was performed, etching his name permanently in the NBA’s history.

Before becoming Ondo State Governor in 2017, Akeredolu served as Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Ondo State from 1997-1999.

Ikwuazom conveyed his deep sympathies to Akeredolu’s family, colleagues and people of Ondo State, describing his shocking passing as the loss of a brilliant legal mind and dedicated public servant.

In his condolence message, Ikwuazom prayed that Akeredolu’s soul may find eternal repose.
