Yusuf Ola-Olu Ali, SAN Honored by Osogbo NBA Branch

The Osogbo NBA branch has named a centre after Yusuf Ola-Olu Ali, SAN. Hassan Agbelekale, the branch’s chairman, said the decision was in recognition of his performance at the bar and contribution to the development of legal practice.

Agbelekale accompanied members of the bar on a courtesy visit to Dr Khamis Olatunde Badmus, Asiwaju Musulumi of Yorubaland, to update him on the center’s ground-breaking, which is set for June 4, 2022.

Agbelekale was quoted as saying in a statement signed by the association’s Publicity Secretary, Dawood Ajetunmobi, Esq, that “the robing centre cited within the premise of Osun State High Court of Justice, Osogbo Judicial Division, will be best of its kind in the whole South-West when completed because of the services it will provide for lawyers and paralegals both within and outside the jurisdiction of Osun.”

“The centre is a one stop place for lawyers to robe and change their dresses before and after court sessions, meeting place for lawyers, administrative office for activities of NBA Osogbo and relaxation place for members. And because of sterling performance of Mallam Yusuf Ali (SAN) and the mentorship role he has played over the years for our members, the branch decided to name the robing center after him. As a very important stakeholder in Osogbo and Osun State and one of the well wishers of the honoree, the event of ground-breaking will not be completed without your involvement,” Agbelekale added.

Given his robust relationship with the honoree and the importance of legal practitioners in the society, Asiwaju Tunde Badmus, who is set to chair the ceremony, said, “he would do everything within his power to ensure the ground-breaking event is a success.”

“Learned silk, Mallam Yusuf Ali deserves the honour going by his contributions to the legal practice. I enjoy a robust relationship with him and Osogbo Bar and, you can count on me on the success of the ground breaking event of the Robing Center,” the statement added.
