Former Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Section on Public interest  and Development Law ( SPIDEL) Chief Joe Kyari Gadzama SAN, last today in Abuja described Mr. Dele Adesina SAN as unbeatable in terms of his leadership capacity at the Bar.

Chief Gadzama stated this while receiving Mr. Adesina and his team who paid him a courtesy call at the J-K Gadzama Court in Abuja.  He said “In terms of capacity  in the present context you are unbeatable. But what is the assurance that the process will be transparent and the results of the exercise will reflect the votes and  will of the people.
“You were the General Secretary of the NBA  when I was chairman of Abuja branch and your record of  achievements are there for all to see”.

Chief Gadzama also said: “I  believe  in the regional groups,  I am a trustee of the Arewa Lawyers Forum and therefore  cannot go against the decision of Egbe Amofin and their  candidate. When you stepped down for Mr. Oluwarotimi  Akeredolu SAN in 2008, some of us were not happy with you.

You have a huge support base in my branch, most of the people in your entourage are my people  and I cannot say no to you.You don’t need  NBA Presidency to get to the top, it is all about service to God and humanity. If you believe you can serve the association now,  please go on. Iwill consult with my people to agree on who to support in the race”

In his response, a Partner in J-K Gadzama LLP, Mr. Mohammed Mongono said: “Be rest assured that you have no problem with me and those who will listen to me. Others may come but one is matured to take his own  position, so feel free to visit us any time. Mongono also stated that nobody has the institutional memory more than Mr. Adesina and therefore  he has  all their  support.  He complained  that nobody was appointed into the Electoral Committee of the NBA   from Maiduguri, Biu and  Damaturu branches of the NBA
and that as a former chairman of Maiduguri Branch, he  was disappointed at this and does not know what they have  done to deserve this. 

He assured Mr. Adesina of the support of the law firm in this journey.
