In a move to show deep appreciation to his supportive mum, an unidentified new lawyer in a viral video, prostrated before his mother in the profession’s full robe.
The new lawyer got emotional at the call-to-bar ceremony of the Nigerian Law School held in Abuja on Wednesday as he prostrated before his mother and tearfully thanked her.
The ceremony signifies the induction of new lawyers into the legal profession after their Bar final examinations held in May.
As he grabbed at her feet, he tearfully said, “I’m nothing without you. I’m grateful for you every day. Without you and God, I’m nothing.”
His mum, however, kept saying “It is well” while asking him to stand up from prostration.
He captioned the post, “My KING MAKER! My QUEEN. I’ll forever HONOR YOU MOM, no matter how big or how famous I get! You’re my source and life, I don’t care whoever is looking, Orisa mi ❤️❤️❤️ E Ku aduro Ti”
No fewer than 1,507 graduating students from the Nigerian Law School were called to bar at the event organised by the Body of Benchers.
While 1,501 of the lawyers are fresh graduates, the six others are from the previous call.
