The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Unity Branch at the weekend organized a hike for lawyers.
A statement made available to CITY LAWYER noted that “The event saw a good turn out of lawyers. However, it was a pleasant surprise when two silks, Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN and Dr. Sunny Ajala SAN joined in the exercise which drove up the spirit of the lawyers.
“In the friendly mood of the event, the younger lawyers challenged the Silks to see who would reach the top of the mountain. Unknown to them, Chief Gadzama is a golfer who encounters such terrains while Dr Sunny Ajala is a fit and sporty individual.
“To their surprise, the learned silks got to the top while some of the younger lawyers could not make it.”
Speaking on the event, Chairman of the Branch Sport Committee, Mr. Afam Okeke thanked members for turning out for the event. He specially thanked Chief Gadzama and Dr Ajala for their support.
Responding, Chief Gadzama noted that the essence of such events cannot be overemphasised, adding that “Every lawyer must take part in sports and remain healthy to effectively render quality services to clients and enjoy their lives.”
