Iconic Lawyer, Funke Adekoya, SAN Endorses Y. C. Maikyau, SAN For NBA President In Explosive Statement

Another iconic Nigerian woman of the legal profession; an esteemed lawyer who has been noted for her outstanding work in the field of arbitration and commercial litigation; a former 1st Vice President of the Nigerian Bar Association and Life Bencher, Mrs. Olufunke (Funke) Adekoya, SAN has also endorsed Yakubu Chonoko Maikyau, SAN as the President the legal profession needs at this time.

Mrs. Funke Adekoya who was a founding partner at ǼLEX Legal Practitioners and Arbitrators is often described as a beacon of conscience and integrity at the Bar. She has been known to fearlessly insist on doing the right thing despite whose ox is gored, and had this to say,

“Even though JK Gadzama is a personal friend, I believe that the NBA is ripe for new leadership.

“Noting that the last few Bar Presidents have been people who cannot be termed ‘Bar politicians’, I think Y. C. Maikyau SAN is what the profession needs now.

“If you are part of the problem, you cannot be part of the solution. He represents the new generation of leadership, involved in the Bar but not so involved as to be counted as part of the problem.

“As such he brings new thinking and new ideas to address the issues of the legal profession.”
