The Organisers of the Abuja Lawyers League have unveiled Chukwuka Ikwuazom, SAN as the headline sponsor of the lawyers’ football competition known as “Abuja Lawyers League 2023.”

This year’s edition is tagged CHUKWUKA IKWUAZOM (SAN) SUPER CUP 2023. The competition is a platform for lawyers to come together – outside of the courtroom and legal dealings – to enjoy the sport and improve their physical and mental well-being while still having fun and entertainment.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Chukwuka Ikwuazom SAN reiterated that lawyers often find themselves immersed in demanding schedules filled with long hours, tight deadlines and high-pressure situations. Engaging in sports can provide an effective means of alleviating stress and promoting overall well-being. Moreover, participating in sports can also help lawyers develop crucial skills that are essential for success in the legal field, and build stronger relationships with colleagues.

Speaking at the unveiling, the Head of the organizing committee, Olujimi Olujide-Poko stated that Ikwuazom’s sponsorship of the annual football fiesta is a generous and much-appreciated gesture, adding that “The Abuja legal community is delighted to be associated with such a fine gentleman who has carved a niche for himself in his legal practice in the area of oil & gas and most especially taxation.

“His consent to support the league also demonstrates his commitment to the legal profession and the community of lawyers in Nigeria. His support has given the league a bigger image because he is a big brand and the league is a growing brand too. This competition provides an opportunity for lawyers to showcase their skills and talents in football.”

Olujimi rounded off by expressing his gratitude to the senior lawyer who has taken the baton from Mr. Mahmud Magaji SAN who sponsored the 6th edition in 2022.

The competition serves as a platform for networking, building relationships, and promoting camaraderie among members of the legal community. It is also a reminder that lawyers are not just legal professionals, but individuals with diverse interests and talents.

Senior members of the Unity Bar expressed their appreciation to Ikwuazom for his invaluable sponsorship of the Abuja Lawyers’ League Football 2023, adding that his dedication to the legal profession serves as an inspiration to all.
