That the legal profession is set to witness an epic wedding is no longer in doubt. This came on the heels of the announcement that the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) President, Mr. Olumide Akpata will next month put an official imprimatur to the relationship with his longstanding partner, Miss Osayamon Ogbebor.

In light of the keen interest on the love-birds especially among lawyers since news of the impending nuptials broke, CITY LAWYER launched an investigation into the personality of the lady that has held the NBA President’s attention for what close aides say has been ‘a very long time.’

Born Osayamon Michelle May Ogbebor into the influential Ogbebor Family of Bini Kingdom, the beautiful bride is a top executive and the Financial Markets Legal Adviser at the Central Securities Clearing System (CSCS) Plc. The CSCS is Nigeria’s central securities directory licensed to carry on depository, clearing and settlement of all transactions in the Nigerian Capital Market. The legal expert has served in the Legal, Company Secretariat and Compliance Services Directorate for almost three years.

Osayamon received a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Essex. She then proceeded to the prestigious Queen Mary University of London from where she earned a Master of Laws (LLM) degree in December 2017. More recently in March 2022, Osayamon successfully completed a virtual course on “Sustainable Business Strategy” at the Harvard Business School. Unsurprisingly, she is a member of the Harvard Business School Online: Sustainable Business Strategy, February 2022 Group among others.

It is recalled that Akpata had in a trending SAVE THE DATE flier stated that he popped the question “after a bit of dithering” and his partner said “Yes!”

While the traditional marriage is scheduled to hold according to Bini native custom 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: “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 ….” He 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.”
