“Remembering the Legacy: A Tribute to Charles Idehen, Champion of Justice” -By Afam Osigwe, SAN

Mr. Charles Idehen’s legacy reverberates through his profound contributions to the legal profession and his unwavering commitment to justice and the rule of law. As a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and later the African Bar Association (AfBA), Pa Idehen epitomized integrity, leadership, and dedication.

Elected as NBA President in 1989, his tenure marked a period of significant advancement in Nigeria’s legal landscape. His leadership was characterized by a steadfast commitment to upholding the principles of justice, fairness, and accountability. Idehen’s tenure was marked by his tireless efforts to bridge divides within the legal community and foster collaboration among legal practitioners.

Beyond his national leadership role, Mr. Idehen’s influence extended across the African continent. His presidency of the AfBA provided him with a platform to advocate for the rule of law and promote legal reforms across borders. Idehen’s legacy as a bridge-builder is evidenced by his efforts to mediate conflicts and promote dialogue in various African nations, earning him respect and admiration from colleagues and counterparts alike.

His foray into politics, particularly his gubernatorial bid in Bendel State, exemplified his commitment to public service and his desire to effect positive change beyond the confines of the legal profession. His decision to transition from law to politics underscores his belief in the power of governance to shape societies and advance the cause of justice.

Throughout his career, he remained a stalwart defender of human rights and a vocal advocate for the marginalized and oppressed. His passion for justice and his unwavering dedication to the rule of law serve as an enduring inspiration to all who strive for a more just and equitable society.

In this moment of loss, we reflect on Mr. Charles Idehen’s profound impact on the legal profession, his steadfast commitment to justice, and his enduring legacy as a champion of the rule of law. Though he may have departed this world, his legacy will continue to inspire generations of legal practitioners and advocates for years to come.
