Ikere Branch, Ekiti State is in the spotlight. The election of Bar Executives of that branch has sent positive vibes across the nation and the legal community in particular.

In a profession that addresses practitioners, whether in the Bar or Bench in male gender, dominated by male folks, coupled with challenges peculiar to ladies especially married ones, the news from Ikere, Ekiti is heartwarming.

Mesdames Kike Owolabi, Ibironke Otedola and Ifedapo Osadola elected as Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer respectively of the Branch are the metaphor of the changing face of NBA leadership with women having more than a passive stand.

Interestingly antecedents of the Branch show this feat is not a flash in the pan. The predecessor of the chairperson is also a female.

The Legal Profession in Nigeria has seen Females achieve various strides in various endeavors – Academics, Litigation, Corporate World, The Judicature etc.

Ikere, Ekiti shows that women are showing interest in Bar Leadership, being the engine room and the driving force.

Congratulations to The New Executives of Ikere Branch , Ekiti State!
