The former Chairman of Lagos NBA, Mr. Chukwuka Ikwuazom poured out his mind when he spoke passionately about Dr. Babatunde Ajibade, SAN.
“I have known Dr Tunde Ajibade, SAN for more than fifteen years.
He is deeply knowledgeable but very humble and accessible.
He’s passionate about the legal profession and concerned that the profession is losing its pride of place.
He’s done so much to reform the judicial process in Nigeria.
He and some of his colleagues wrote the Administration of Civil Justice Bill which if enacted will go a long way in addressing the challenges with administration of justice in Nigeria. Ekiti State was the first to pass this Bill into law.
Perhaps, Dr Ajibade’s most important virtue is his integrity which even his opponents acknowledge.
He’s young and is able to relate with lawyers across generations.
His practice straddles both litigation and corporate-commercial practice.
Thus, he is able to understand the challenges that both areas of practice face.
Although he’s a senior advocate, he was also a founding member of the NBA Section on Business Law (SBL) and was on it’s Council until a couple of years ago.
He’s been the Chair of Capital Markets Solicitors’ Association.
I wholeheartedly recommend him”
the erudite lawyer canvassed his support for the learned Silk.
