Don lauds Usoro for mentoring young lawyers
A University teacher and dean, faculty of law, Crescent University, Abeokuta, Professor Momodu Kasim-Momodu, has commended eminent lawyer, Mr. Paul Usoro (SAN) for his pupillage and mentorship programme for young lawyers as well as his giant strides in legal practice.
The professor and his colleagues spoke at a breakfast meeting organised by the Young Lawyers Forum (YLF) of Kano, Ungogo and Dutse branches, where they hailed Usoro for his exceptional and excellent skills over the years.
They commended him particularly his establishment of one of the finest law firms, Paul Usoro & Co, that is known to hire young lawyers and groom them through thorough mentorship sessions.
He therefore called on fellow academia and other lawyers in the country to choose Usoro as their candidate for the next President of the Nigerian Bar Association. “I have had faith in him from the first day I heard about his ambition to lead the NBA. I had never met him but I went online to read about his works and they are simply exceptional. Paul is a bar man that has the potentials to give us an Association that will put you and your dreams first”.
Other personalities at the breakfast meeting include Alh. Tajudeen Oladoja (Life Bencher), Ibrahim Shehu, (YLF Chairman, Dutse branch), Abdullahi Musa Karaye, (YLF Chairman, Ungogo branch), Mukhtar Bello Shehu (YLF Chairman, Kano Branch), Ahmed Khali (YLF Chairman, Yobe Branch) among others.
In the same vein, as part of his agenda to have an inclusive bar, Usoro recently paid a courtesy visit to the law teachers of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, Port Harcourt during the 2018conference of the Section on Legal Practice of the Nigerian Bar Association (SLP NBA) held in Port Harcourt.
Addressing the law teachers, Paul Usoro said, “My coming here is to reinforce belief that leadership we will work together with the academics to provide solutions to the myriads of problems facing legal practice in Nigeria. The academics are well placed to research into those problems and proffer solutions”.
On his part, Dean, Faculty of Law, Rivers State University of Science and Technology, Port Harcourt, Prof Nlerum Okogbule expressed the support of the academia to Usoro. “We commend your foresight in the industry and we are impressed to have you speak to us at this conference. We would support you because we need innovations in the NBA. The bar needs somebody like you to lead the Association and you can rest assured of our support”.
