All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial flag bearer in the 2012 governorship election in Ondo State, Chief Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) yesterday advocated partnership in legal profession.
Barrister Akeredolu stated this while inaugurating the chambers of Adebayo and Gbadamosi Law Firm in Ibadan,the Oyo state capital.
He stressed that partnership if embraced in the law profession will go a long way in enhancing the betterment of the lives of lawyers as well as the profession.
According to Barrister Akeredolu, the partnership of the duo of Barrister Adebayo Ojo and Kazeem Gbadamosi, who were lawyers in his chambers many years ago, had given benefits to their partnership and the legal profession in general.
He stressed that his partnership with former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Akin Olujinmi (SAN), Chief Akeredolu, especially in their individual sub-legal discipline of commercial law and advocacy-litigation, helped the profession in general, adding that the time has come for lawyers to explore it to their benefit.
“The two partners – Ojo and Gbadamosi – had succeeded this far because of their not failing to critique their individual selves in the course of their profession. They both never suffered fools gladly and generously critiqued each other, even in their partnership, ”he said.
