The death of Senator Abubakar Sodangi Danso is a significant loss to the legal profession in Nigeria. He was a beacon of legal excellence and a stalwart in the advancement of the rule of law. His legacy, woven with dedication and service, epitomizes the essence of leadership and commitment to the legal profession.

Senator Danso’s journey, from his pivotal role at the African Bar Association Secretariat to his chairmanship of the Abuja Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association and his distinguished tenure in the Nigerian Senate, reflects a profound dedication to the ideals of justice and democracy. His tenure as Chairman of the Judiciary Committee stands as a testament to his unwavering advocacy for the principles of fairness and equity.

As the Pioneer Chairman of the African Bar Association (Nigeria Forum), Senator Danso’s visionary leadership propelled the organization forward, fostering unity and collaboration across the African legal community. He was indeed a bridge builder, fostering connections and alliances that transcended borders, enriching the legal landscape across the continent.

Senator Danso’s relentless pursuit of the rule of law and democracy leaves an indelible mark on the legal fraternity, inspiring generations to uphold the principles of justice and accountability. His legacy will continue to resonate, guiding us in our quest for a more just and equitable society.

I extend my condolences to his family, colleagues, and well-wishers, with prayers that his soul will rest in peace. Amen.

Afam Osigwe, SAN
