All members of Dele Adesina LP and I join the world in celebrating the achievements and successes of women globally. Particular in our profession, I cannot help but mention the successes of the likes of Chief Mrs. Folanke Solanke SAN, CON, Hon. Justice Aloma Mariam Mukhtar CJN Rtd, the first female Senior Advocate of Nigeria and first female Chief Justice of Nigeria respectfully.
After these leading women, many other female lawyers have led the way with numerous ground breaking achievements and this brief message cannot be enough to outline all. I also note the record achievements of groups such as the Federation of International Women Lawyers (FIDA), African Women Lawyers Association (AWLA) and members of the Nigerian Bar Association Women’s Forum.
As we all continue to raise our voices against inequality, gender stereotypes and gender oppression in every facet, I call for gender inclusion and equality at all instances. I specially commend the female members of the Nigerian Bar Association for their dynamism and their giant strides in the profession.
Happy International Women’s Day 2020.
