Spread the love

On Tuesday, June 21, 2022, the amiable J-K Gadzama SAN hosted the members of the newly elected executive committee of the NBA-Abuja branch. The Excos were led by the indefatigable Afam Okeke Esq who previously worked and cut his teeth under Chief Gadzama’s tutelage.



The hosting was not a surprise as the Learned Silk had continually hosted all elected Excos of the NBA-Abuja branch since 2005.

At the event which took place at the Learned Silk’s Asokoro residence, the past Chairman of the branch, Chief Gadzama stated that it had become a tradition for him to host all Excos of the NBA-Abuja branch. According to him, it was important to continually interact with colleagues and provide motivation for the executives of the branch who he humbly described as his ‘bosses’.

After the remarks by the Learned Silk, senior members of the Bar such as Chief Patrick Okolo SAN – Past Chairman of the NBA-Abuja branch, Chief Ikechukwu Ezechukwu SAN – Past Chairman of the NBA-Abuja branch, Mela Audu Nunghe SAN – Past Chairman of the NBA-Abuja branch and Mohammed Monguno, Esq. – Past Attorney-General of Borno & Chairman of NBA-Maiduguri branch gave short speeches wherein they narrated the history and unity of the branch. They also hailed Chief Gadzama for his magnanimity and constant availability to respond to the needs of the branch.

In response, the Chairman of the branch, Afam Okeke, Esq. thanked Chief Gadzama who he described as a key supporter of the bar for always assisting the branch in all its endeavours. He recounted how the Learned Silk hosted the branch executives while he was the Secretary under the leadership of Desmond Yamah, Esq. He also stated that Chief Gadzama loved the branch and appreciated him for the kind gesture shown towards the newly elected Excos.

It is interesting to note that the newly elected and immediate past chairmen of the branch had worked under Chief Gadzama and enjoyed his revered mentorship at different points in their careers.

As the event went on, the guests ate, dined and relaxed at the event. Incidentally, it was the birthday of Funso Odebode, Esq., the vice-chairman of the branch who was celebrated by the Learned Silk.

Present at the event were the following officers of the NBA-Abuja branch: Funso Odebode, Esq. – Vice Chairman, Isiaka Musa, Esq. – Secretary, Oluwatosin F. Emmanuel, Esq. – Assistant Secretary, Adamma Isamade, Esq. – Welfare Secretary, Michael Awo Ejeh, Esq. – Publicity Secretary, Chinelo Audrey Ofoegbunam, Esq. – Treasurer, Farida Usman, Esq. – Financial Secretary, Simon Kanshio, Esq. – Social Secretary and Emmanuel Utomi, Esq. – Provost. Also present were Francis Oronsaye, Esq. – Managing Partner of J-K Gadzama LLP, Darlington Onyekwere, Esq., Madu Gadzama, Esq., Jerry Musa, Esq., Mark Chidi Agbo, Esq. and Lamar Gadzama, Esq., amongst others.

Other Past Chairmen like Chief Karinya Tunya SAN, Chief Ola Olanipekun SAN, Mr Patrick Ediale, High Chief Muyiwa Akinboro, SAN, and Abimbola Kayode, Esq. sent their apologies.
