Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) President, Mr. Olumide Akpata is set to wed his long-time heartthrob, Miss Osayamon Michelle Ogbebor.

In a SAVE THE DATE flier sighted by CITY LAWYER, Akpata stated that he popped the question “after a bit of dithering” and his partner said “Yes!” CITY LAWYER gathered from a source close to the NBA President that the bride is a senior executive and Financial Markets Legal Adviser at Central Securities Clearing System (CSCS) Plc.

While the traditional marriage is scheduled to hold in the spouse’s compound at Ekenwan Road, Benin, Edo State on May 14, 2022 the reception holds at Air Force Military Base, Airport Road, Benin, Edo State.

Meanwhile, the couple will be joined in holy matrimony on October 2, 2022 in far-away Mauritius. CITY LAWYER gathered that this may be a strategy to manage the huge number of guests that would otherwise have attended the wedding if held in Nigeria. 

Said Akpata: “After a bit of dithering on my part, I finally asked my darling Osayamon to marry me and … she said yes!!!

“Our Families, having now been formally introduced and the necessary consultations having taken place, we are pleased to announce the details of our Wedding nuptials as follows: ….”

The NBA President has urged friends and well wishers to “Please keep Osayamon and me in your prayers even as you make your plans to share in these special moments with us.”

When CITY LAWYER contacted Akpata on the news, he was yet to respond at press time.
