“Olumide Akpata Has Been Commendable and Brilliant as a Manager of People and Also as a Strong Advocate for Excellence in the Profession.” Olasupo Shasore, SAN, Endorses Olumide Akpata for NBA President
I have watched with keen interest the different roles Olumide Akpata has played in the affairs of the Bar over the years. He has displayed unparalleled competence, devotion and industry in the discharge of the offices and duties that he has been charged with as a dedicated Bar man.
As Chair of the Section of Business Law, he took that Section many notches higher than where his predecessors left it. He has been commendable and brilliant as a manager of people and of the most important events of the Bar and also as a strong advocate for excellence in the profession.
To the admiration of many, he has been resolute in his pursuit of the growth of the profession and the place of the younger generation in it.
He is absolutely relatable, energetic and unwavering – and I have no hesitation whatsoever in endorsing him to be the next President of the NBA.
