The former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has reportedly disclosed that if not for the courage exhibited by judges as well as their respect for rule of law, he would have been an ex-convict on account of his activism.
According to him, “I am not a lawyer; even though in the course of my journey in life, I realised that I wished I had read law but I know it is too late for me now.”
He made it known that, “I know it is never late but I didn’t want to read law for reading sake but that I can practice. However, given my age, it would have been embarrassing to graduate, go through Law School, only to be carrying a bag for my grandchildren’s mate to the court. I guess that it is too late for me.”
Oshiomhole also stated that, “But each time they did that, I have been fortunate to appear before judges with courage. I have been defended by lawyers, who most of the time provided their knowledge of the law and intellectual sagacity to defend me from government after government.”
