I love the fact that I am a Nigerian lawyer. Our profession was carved to ensure that we respect our seniors at the Bar, in as much as we all pay respect to our elders at home. I took time to observe the similarity and it is simply amazing! Well, that is another topic for another day. Now, the advent of technology is gradually changing the trend, when an elder tweet most of the time you don’t wait to find out if the person is your father’s age mate before you respond. The response sometimes is given in the speed of light and in an equal portion to the original tweet that you are responding to. In a nutshell, members of the profession can easily talk back at seniors without any fear of reprimand.

A Nigerian author, Chinua Achebe, once wrote: “Proverbs are the palm oil with which words are eaten…” I simply can’t understand why we cannot take our destiny into our own hands and vote wisely. The three Presidential candidiates have a life before this election, all we need to do is check their track record holistically. How much is each paying his juniors? what is their international network? what is the track record of their success in the business world? what is their practice like? And a host of other questions. Well, your guess is as good as mine.

Charity, they say, begins at home. The only person that stands out without an iota of doubt is Paul Usoro, SAN. The facts speak for themselves. We all know these facts and that is why we have seen a lot of blow-him-out strategies. It is not necessary to blow out the other person’s lantern to let one’s own shine (Swahili proverb) But the more they try the more they increase his chances and popularity. But God is not mocked, PU keep up the clean and good work, success is yours!

Even if you dance in the water, your enemies will accuse you of causing dust.
We understand their game plan but it won’t work . Make your vote count by voting PU.

My name is Emmanuel Ugochukwu
