Wole Olanipekun Must Quit Now By Femi Shodunke

On this, indeed I must commend the NBA President, Y.C. Maikyau, over his (in vicarious position for NBA) sterling courage, intrepidation, to write the letter (if it’s true, because anything can be forged in Nigeria now!) in circulation to BoB Chair Wole Olanipekun. Limpidly, to sweep such dubious email allegation under the carpet, in shameless, careless manner, is to allow the judiciary, and indeed the legal profession, to lose its esteemed prestige, honour and integrity in the society, particularly in Nigeria. Quite frankly, permit me to say well done President Maikyau for a good job, not only in the interest of the legal profession, but to unequivocally also sustain the confidence of Nigerians in protecting them against the powerfully connected in our society. In line with the NBA position, Olanipekun should resign pronto and proper investigation should, without undue delay, instituted. Nigerians are anxiously waiting and the whole world is watching appropriate actions that are apt in this type of disgraceful conduct at such exalted legal position. Indeed, I just read the letter now and decided to react as a concerned citizen of Nigeria who believes in the rule of law, and proper conduct in our society. Unfortunately, this neoteric agitation, whic has been troubling the minds of many Nigerians since it came into the public space, is coming on the heel of the recent controversial “political” speech made by the CJ Olukayode Ariwoola in Port Harcourt. Unmistakably, this is why the legal profession, which is our hope to ensure a sane society in Nigeria, must use this email controversy matter, once and for all, to clean itself. Otherwise, the indelible stain will continue to dog it for ever. – Chief Femi Shodunke  Journalist Toronto  Canada
