Pro-chancellor of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Dr. Wale Babalakin (SAN), has described education as continuous, while pointing out the need for Nigerians to be “more equipped and more educated”.
Speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony for the Lagos Bar Centre in Lekki Phase 1, Babalakin, who is the chairman of the project committee, said: “We have to improve the education of lawyers as well. That is the bedrock. When you have good education, you will be able to decipher what is good and what is bad and make your demands.
“So, fundamentally, legal education is continuous; it doesn’t end with your becoming a lawyer or a SAN.”On the project, he said, for a long time, NBA Lagos chapter had wanted to provide for its members a comfortable Bar Centre “for ideas (sharing), meetings and coordinating the activities of the bar.”
The Resort Group chairman said he was proud that the project was taking off, adding, “The selection of the consultants was done in a competitive way. We have brought cost down significantly without compromising quality. It is to the glory of God that we are able to lay this foundation on the last day in office of the Lagos NBA chairman, Mr. Chukwuka Ikuazom, and I think it is only fair for what he has done. We intend to finish this project ahead of schedule. Read more
