I met Mr. Clement Ugo Chukwuemeka, Esq. in 2020 when my brother and colleague, Mr. Benson Aigbojie, was physically assaulted by personnel of the Nigerian Police in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, while in pursuit of his professional duty as counsel to one of the Police detainees.

As soon as Mr. Clement Ugo Chukwuemeka got wind of the indecent treatment of our colleague by personnel of the Nigerian Police, kabusa Police station to be precise in Abuja, he headed straight for the Police station where this assault took place. He immediately contacted the then President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr. Paul Usoro, SAN. Whilst a wrong information was given as regards my brother ordeal. He deployed the totality of his arsenals in seeking the redress of Mr. Benson Aigbojie for the unprofessional conduct of the Police.

As the Chairman of the Bwari branch of the Nigerian Bar Association, he proved himself to be a servant-leader and this earned him the love, respect and admiration of members of the Bar in FCT and beyond. Ever since that time till now, he has remained a noble servant-leader and a rallying point for many members of the bar, regardless of their post call ranking. He has assisted me personally in ensuring that I excel in my practice as a courtroom advocate and in the legal profession in general. I am persuaded that Democrats as we fondly call him, is a “good product for the NBA market” and I urge all members of our noble Association (the NBA) to support his bid for the office of 2nd Vice President of the NBA in the forthcoming coming election as he contributed towards the love I have for NBA till date. Clement Ugo Chukwuemeka is indeed a sui generis undiluted Bar man.

Mentor Oriere, Esq. is a Member of the Bwari branch of the Nigerian Bar Association and a Doctoral Fellow of the Institute of Leadership Manpower and Management Development (ILMMD).
