Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) has vowed to support the Nigerian Bar Association.
The former Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) president spoke while inaugurating the Law Chambers built by Akure lawyer and activist, Sir Charles Titiloye in Akure, the state capital.
The project which was the first to be inaugurated in the state since the governor assumed duties on February 24 is a three-floor edifice accommodating the law firm and human rights centre.
Akeredolu described Titiloye as an ‘industrious young man committed to the service of the oppressed and downtrodden’.
“Titiloye is my close associate. I always used his office as my point of contact anytime I came to Akure for professional assignments. He belongs to a special class of lawyers who combined activism with legal practice.
“Only very few people like Gani Fawehinmi, Kanmi Ishola-Osobu and Femi Falana had succeeded in marrying the two trades together, hence, I salute Titiloye for his greater responsibility to serve humanity,” Akeredolu said.
